Tenuta San Guido Sassicaia 2013


“In the world of red Bordeaux blends, Sassicaia, a wine which is grouped in the “Super Tuscan” category because of its high class status and use of Bordeaux varieties, often comes across as one of the most elegant amongst the rarefied and elite.” 

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. In 2013, that was on full display to the tune of a 99-point review from Europe’s most respected publication, Decanter and double 98s from Wine Enthusiast and James Suckling.

Coming from one of the highest rated and regarded vintages in the last 50 years in Tuscany, this 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Cab Franc based SuperTuscan is as elegant and poised as it gets. It’s a must-have for serious collectors.

99 Points, Decanter
The Sassicaia 2013 is just beautiful, and it takes a leap forward in quality. There is even greater precision and transparency with the aromas and flavours, there is a wonderful harmony and ease on the palate and there are even finer, and more seamless tannins on this wine. According to my co-host, Priscilla Incisa Della Rocchetta 2013 was a ‘record vintage for Sassicaia’. Carlo Paoli adds, ‘spring arrived early but without excess, summer started slowly and was only hot for 20 days and they started harvest mid-September for Cabernet Sauvignon. Everything was slow, calm and beautiful.’ The 2013 is at the beginning of its drinking window and drinking beautifully now, but it still has a long time to go.

98 Points, Wine Enthusiast
Red berry, cedar and light spice aromas lead the way on this dazzling red. The vibrant palate is loaded with finesse, delivering bright red currant, red raspberry, white pepper and chopped herb alongside bright acidity and firm, polished tannins. Impeccably balanced, it’s loaded with elegance, energy and intensity but it’s still young, so give it time to fully develop. Drink 2020–2038.

98 Points, James Suckling
Fabulous structure for a Sassicaia with powerful, polished, chewy tannins and ripe, subtle fruit. Aromas of blueberries, blackcurrants, rosemary and lavender. Full body, bright acidity and a savory finish. Juicy and lively. Better to drink this beginning in 2020 but so impressive now.
