Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
The result of a “rather special” and warm growing season, ‘12 Sassicaia is juicy and succulent, yet it’s fresh, acidic, balanced and textured. Rich, intense and elegant, the ‘12 Sassicaia holds its juicy red and blue berries, fresh-cut herbs, river rock minerality, and smoke in sinuous balance. This ’12 Sassicaia wraps its ripe fruit around a core of minerality, and its velvety tannins coat the palate with exquisite texture. Enjoyable slightly earlier than most Sassicaia vintages, this ’12 nonetheless has the structure to age for decades. Tenuta San Guido ferments Sassicaia in temperature-controlled stainless steel with only indigenous yeasts; this wine ages in French oak barriques for two years followed by a few months in bottle before release.
