1985 Tenuta San Guido Sassicaia – Magnum

$6,500.00

I tasted this 1985 Tenuta San Guido Sassicaia in a blind tasting – I have had it frequently, and have never failed to give it a perfect rating. At the same time, I have often mis-identified it in blind tastings as the 1986 Mouton-Rothschild. In this tasting, the 1985 Tenuta San Guido Sassicaia was phenomenal. The colour remains an opaque purple. The bouquet is beginning to develop secondary aromas of cedar and truffles to go along with its intense cassis, black-raspberry, blackberry, tarry, toasty personality. Exceptionally dense, concentrated, and full-bodied, this wine possesses layers of concentrated fruit that are beautifully balanced by the wine’s sweet tannin and well-integrated acidity. The finish lasts for nearly a minute. A monumental Cabernet Sauvignon, it is one of the greatest wines made this century. Tasting after tasting continues to confirm this wine’s surreal level of quality…My best guess for when it will reach full maturity is between 2015-2035. What a wine! Robert Parker 100 Points, Drinking 2005 – 2035.
