Lot #31. Tenuta San Guido Sassicaia 2008

Description: Consists of 12 Bottles, 0.75L
Packaging: OWC.
Score: 97 JS.
"This is the best young Sassicaia in years. It's the new 1988, which was great, and sometimes better than the legendary 1985. What incredible aromas here with blueberries, spices, licorice, plums. Graphite too. Subtle and complex. Full and silky with a beautiful texture of fine tannins and an ultra-fine finish. So beautiful now but will be much better in 2015. Owner Niccolo Incisa della Rocchetta says that Sassicaia is always great in years that end with eight: 1958, 1968, 1978, 1988, 1998, and 2008." James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, June 12, 2016
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $1,700
