Tenuta San Guido Sassicaia 2009


Sassicaia is today considered to be one of Italy’s greatest red wines for its consistent excellence and its intuitive spirit. The bottles are collector’s dreams, with many of them amongst the highest scored and age-worthy wines made each year.

The 2009 was a particularly special one for Tenuta San Guido, and perhaps one that collector’s in Italy overlooked a bit compared to how French and American wines faired when the wines were first released. Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate called the wine “super-charged” with “enormous power and concentration”. They also referred to this beauty from Carlo Paoli and team as “the richest and darkest edition in recent memory.”

This will be unlike any other wine in the cellar and it 100% deserves a place there. It’s a collector’s dream.

98 Points, James Suckling
This is fantastic. Intense and super long on the palate. It’s insanely complex yet subtle with so much going on, with a beautiful balance and tension. It is full and powerful with a big juicy character that goes on for minutes. Muscular yet covered with pretty fruit. Elegance with force. Hard not to drink.

97 Points, Decanter
Some torrefied, caramel notes on the nose, this is a wine that vibrates with a beautifully held together crimson red color. On the palate, there are signs of a hot vintage, with hints of exotic fig, yet it’s shot through with fresh crushed violet notes. Can feel some sun bleaching, although again a heady sweet spice fragrance takes over. This is grilled charcoal over a roasted blackcurrant Cabernet core. And then, just as you are wondering about the exoticism of the fruit, the sweet relief of fresh mint comes slipping in on the finish. What a beautiful wine. Elegant, but packs quite a punch.
