Description Sub Region Producer Notes
Upon release, the ’88 Sassicaia was a big, rock-solid, intense wine; now with almost thirty years of age, this silky, voluptuous wine is showing its promise. Ripe red fruits and juicy black fruits find their complements in savory graphite, warm tobacco wrapper, game notes, cedar wood, and tarry earth in this caressing, medium-weight wine. Firm yet elegant, this wine retains its energy while showing all the beautiful earmarks of a mature Sassicaia; it shows beautiful balance between its sweet and its savory elements, its fine-grained tannins and its minerality, its silky texture and its sweet inner perfume. 1988 is a favorite Sassicaia vintage of its makers, and you need only one glass to understand why. Tenuta San Guido ferments Sassicaia in temperature-controlled stainless steel with only indigenous yeasts; this wine ages in French oak barriques for 22 months followed by a few months in bottle before release.
