Sassicaia 2010 Tenuta San Guido, Bolgheri-Sassicaia
Sassicaia is the original Maremma Super Tuscan. It has spurred many followers but few rivals. Every vintage this iconic wine garners lavish praise and big scores. 2010 was yet another remarkable vintage in the Bolgheri region of Tuscany which Sassicaia single-handedly placed on the map. Of course masterful winemaking by Consulting enologist Graziana Grassini who follows directly in the footsteps of creator Giacomo Tachis, makes this extraordinary blend of Bordeaux varietals what it is. It got 94 points from both James Suckling and the Wine SPectator and the Wine Advocate scored it 96 saying "The 2010 Sassicaia Bolgheri Sassicaia brings back some of the brambly rosemary and wild Mediterranean brush that was missing in 2009. This will greatly appeal to enthusiasts of Sassicaia’s trademark elegance. The wine shows extreme purity that brings its many beautiful aromas into startling focus and clarity. Lingering tones of black fruit and Oriental spice add subtle shades at the back. The wine mostly certainly shows its pedigree in the exciting and beautifully balance manner it evolves in the glass: It tells a new story each time you return to observe the bouquet. This is the harbinger of cellar longevity. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2040."
