The Sassicaia 2011 does not reach the awe-inspiring heights of the two previous vintages (2009 and 2010) that are both iconic in their beauty and pedigree. Sassicaia always suffers when tasted young, which makes it a challenge to assess properly at release time. The winemaking quality is intact and the quality of fruit is beautiful indeed, albeit on the soft and ripe side.

Reviews of Sassicaia 2011
Strong, concentrated, with sweet and balanced tannins on the palate. Very long finish with very important organoleptic and poliphenolic aspects, which will ensure to this wine an extraordinary longevity.
Tenuta San Guido Bolgheri Sassicaia 2013
Nice red Bordeaux colour. Smells like red tea. Fleshy, smoothy.
