About Our Ratings

Sassicaia 2013 Tenuta San Guido, Bolgheri-Sassicaia
Sassicaia is the original Maremma Super Tuscan. It has spurred many followers but few rivals. Every vintage of this iconic wine garners lavish praise and big scores. This 2013 is a blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Cabernet Franc that was aged in French oak barriques (40% new) for 24 months, then refined for 6 months in bottle before release. Wine Enthusiast Magazine crowned this a Cellar Selection and scored it 98 points saying "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 20202038." James Suckling scored it higher than the 2012, also giving it a 98 point score. He said "Fabulous structure for a Sassicaia with powerful, polished, chewy tannins and ripe, subtle fruit. Aromas of blueberry, black currant, 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." The Wine Advocate also preferred the 2013 to the 2012 giving the barrel sample a score of 95-97 and saying "Tasted from barrel, the exciting 2013 Bolgheri Sassicaia is shaping up to be an epic rendition of this celebrated wine. You get a clear sense of the quality of fruit with your first twirl of the glass. Even at this young stage, the wine shows impressive intensity and elegance. It boasts dark fruit nuances with bold cherry and blackberry that will gain focus and traction with time. Oak notes of vanilla and cinnamon are beginning to show their first signs of mellow integration. This was a cool but classic vintage that saw enhanced aromas, acidity and all the qualities that lead to healthy longevity. The 2013 vintage promises greatness." Very Limited!
