Sip of the Day

November 3, 2020

Day #308 of the year.

Tenuta San Guido Sassicaia Bolgheri Sassicaia DOC

If you’re like me, you want to overshadow the thought of election day with some form of distraction. I can guarantee that Tenuta San Guido’s Sassicaia 2017 will steal the spotlight away from chaotic news and loud opinions. Sassicaia demands your full attention. Each sip is an epic trip to Tuscany’s coast, where you’re met by rolling hills, the smell of salt water, and no worries. Regardless of the evening’s outcome, Sassicaia will probably be the only thing you remember. You can check the news when you’re back to reality tomorrow.

Tasting Notes

This wine is chiseled and sharp with blackberry, ripe cherry, grilled herb and barbecue spice. The aromas flow from the glass in a continuous stream and are all marked by radiant intensity. The mouthfeel is long and powerful. The crisp linearity of the wine's tannic backbone is perfectly measured to the volume and depth of the fruit flavors

Food Match

Pair with rich flavors like braised meats, osso bucco and aged, hard cheeses.
