Sassicaia

Tenuta San Guido, Sassicaia, 1978

A glorious, classic spiciness has a top Pomerol feel to it, but then comes a raspberries and mint taste that is utterly fascinating. The glycerol ensures opulence, always balanced by that Cabernet freshness, unctuous and yet structured, with tremendous ‘mouth-feel’. Great out of the blocks and very impressive now.
