Limited Release - Super Tuscan Sassicaia 2014 - Tenuta San Guido
“One of the world’s great wines and an extraordinarily elegant expression of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc grown in Italy"
Sassicaia is not only an Italian icon; it is a giant in the world of Fine Wine that rightly deserves its place at the top table of the world’s best wines. Sassicaia stretches the imagination beyond a singular triumphant vintage, award or figurehead. Great wines start with great vineyards that produce outstanding fruit year on year and, with its unique micro-climate, Sassicaia has stood above its peers regardless of the hand dealt from Mother Nature with its proven track record of producing excellent wines in tougher conditions. To prove that, the 2005 Sassicaia (93 Parker points) was showing beautifully last week, a perfect example of Sassicaia managing to produce stunning wines of harmony, perfume and impeccable balance every vintage. This does not go unnoticed by the market with the 2005 price currently (Feb 2017) at £800 per 6 bottles in bond, highlighting the attraction of securing an allocation at release price each year.
I'm delighted to let you know that I have managed to secure an allocation of the 2014 vintage release.
Sassicaia 2014 - Tenuta San Guido
Very Limited - 30 bottles
(6 bottles in wooden case)
There is no doubt that wine collectors should make space in their cellar for Sassicaia year on year. Older vintages drink outstandingly well the likes of 2005, 2004, 1999, 1998 and 1988 (challenging years which all scored 93 points or below) but still have aged beautifully. The 2014 from barrel and more recently bottle, shows that the 2014 vintage will provide a wine with appealing aromatics and enough flesh to realise Sassicaia’s considerable ageing potential, continuing the estate’s impeccable record of consistency.
