Lots of lavender, minerals and black currants on the nose that turn to blackberries. Full body, ultra-refined tannins and an exquisite finish. This is all about delicacy, finesse and grace. Yet there is a solid core of ripe tannins giving it backbone and outstanding form. Better in 2017 but so delicious already. A wonderful surprise.

Tenuta San Guido's 2012 Bolgheri Sassicaia was a warm vintage, especially during summer months that saw hot winds and little rain. Thankfully, winter months delivered ample precipitation. Vines had good access to moisture underground. Fruit was harvested a bit early to avoid problems with over ripeness.

The 2012 Sassicaia is dark and immediate, with gorgeous up-front richness, density and power. Black cherry jam, cloves and new leather are some of the many signatures that take shape in the glass. The 2012 is an unusually deep, concentrated Sassicaia that is going to need time in bottle to develop the full breadth of its aromas and flavours. It should age gracefully for twenty years or more. 

Anticipated maturity: 2017-2030. 30 bottles arriving from Italy end of March 2017.

Today, it is a bit monolithic, so readers need to be patient.
