Tenuta San Guido, Sassicaia 1988

RRP £559

On its 30th birthday and a wonder of the wine world, with its youthful Cabernet impact, structure and sweetness. Indestructible liquid chocolate and black hidden power, cassis sweetness and an endless finish. It was monumental from the start, awe-inspiring. Claret with a twist and a candidate for Italy’s Best!
