Sassicaia 2019 1.5 lt Tenuta S. Guido
Sassicaia is one of the most important red wines in the world. An Italian icon produced by the San Guido estate with Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc grapes. The refinement lasts 24 months in French oak barriques and then ends in the bottle. The result is a majestic, elegant, very intense and persistent wine, ample with floral scents and aromas of undergrowth. In the mouth it is full-bodied, balanced, rightly tannic and savory, enveloping the palate with its warmth and refinement. A fine wine for true collectors!

Then follows the malolactic fermentation in steel and refinement starting from December 2019, in 40% new French oak barrels, 40% first passage and 20% second passage.
After 25 months of aging in wood, the Sassicaia 2019 is moved to steel tanks and further selected before the final assembly and complete the refinement in the bottle.
This vintage is characterized by its marked aromaticity, a present but not intrusive structure and a soft tannin.
