Dear Wine Lover,
Marchese Incisa della Rocchetta, owner of Tenuta San Guido, has just released into the market the new vintages of his wines
2015 Sassicaia and 2016 Le Difese and Guidalberto. 2015 Vintage was an extraordinary vintage for Tuscany, as well as the 2016 which looks very promising.
James Suckling had the opportunity to taste already twice, in October 2017 and in January 2018, confirming the score of 98 points, stating that it shows the warmth and generosity of the vintage . Our purchasing team, Andrea Rancan and our Sommelier Davide Vaccarini had the chance to taste the new vintage during their last trip in Tuscany directly from the barrel, and despite the wine wasnt ready to be bottled, they both confirmed that this is another great success for the Tenuta San Guido, defining it as stellar and vibrant and flamboyant vintage. Even if it can be enjoyed young, it will strongly benefit of some cellaring. This is a top vintage which shouldnt miss in any collections.

Davide Vaccarini 19.5/20 points: Straight away, this stellar Sassicaia opens up on the palate, showing signs of this vintages hot summer with notes of exuberant fruits. This is a very vibrant and flamboyant vintage for Sassicaia, however it retains its classic Mediterranean personality through its majestic structure, refined tannins, brilliant texture and herbal notes. While this may be ever so tempting to enjoy young, dont be afraid to cellar this baby. A great vintage, like this 2015, will never let you down! Drinking window: 2022-2050.
James Suckling 98 points: Love the aromas to this young red with blackcurrants, sage, cinnamon and five-spice character. Changes all the time. Full-bodied, dense and powerful with a ripe and rich tannin backbone that gives form and beauty to the ripe and beautiful fruit. Tight and very long. Approachable now but will reward more in five to six years. A classic Sassicaia.
