Tenuta San Guido Sassicaia 2006, 750ml (WA97, ST95) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Tenuta San Guido Sassicaia

750ml

Vintage: 2006
Region: Italy
Appellation: Bolgheri

WA97, ST95
Rated 97 points by Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `The 2006 Sassicaia may very well go down as one of the all-time great recent vintages for this Tuscan thoroughbred. The year started off very warm but by August evening temperatures had moderated, leaving the fruit with a stunning combination of ripeness, perfume, acidity and tannin. The wine is simply glorious, that`s all there is to it. Layers of dark fruit meld into smoke, leather, violets, menthol, earthiness and tar as this profound wine opens up in the glass. The creamy, silky finish lasts an eternity, as waves of fruit caress the tannins with breathtaking elegance. Everything is in the right place in this magical Sassicaia. This is one for the ages. In a word: Awesome. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2031.` -- Antonio Galloni in the Wine AdvocateAdditional Notes from the Wine Advocate: `This is a superb set of releases from Tenuta San Guido, the estate that put Maremma on the map as a terroir for world-class wine.`
