Tenuta San Guido Bolgheri "Sassicaia" 2013 DOC Toscana Bordeaux-styled Red Wine, $144.49-$169.99, 97 points, poured a sunburst ruby red grading a bright garnet red toward the broad clear wine ring and glass bowl of stained glass draping.
A unique floral potpourri bouquet nuanced with cocoa, tanned leather, cedar, and ripe blackberry was exceptional.
The supple full body boasted good acidity and a firm supportive underlayment of tannin as a backdrop for finely fashioned flavors reflective of the bouquet and highlighting violets and damson plum.
Finished long on fading violets, red raspberry, and damson plum, transitioning to a crescendo of racy spicy seasonings and a spot-on 13.5% alcohol.
Varietals were 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Cabernet Franc.
