Tenuta San Guido Bolgheri Sassacaia 2007 DOC

The blend is 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Cabernet Franc, aged in French Oak Barriques for 24 months and six months in bottle.

Enticing aromatics of cigar box and spicy smoke, a ripe fruit bouquet of black cherry and plum, with seductive vestiges of herbal sachet, vanilla, glycerine, spices, and even earthy hints of tar.

Complex and perfectly balanced tannins, ending with an extremely long and velvety finish.

Sampled at the Gambero Rosso "Tre Bicchieri" event at the Metropolitan Pavilion in NYC.
