The Tenuta San Guido 2020 Bolgheri Sassicaia speaks to those who seek a more voluptuous, opulent and, ultimately, more accessible wine. This vintage is a precise reflection of Coastal Tuscany, as opposed to a more generic "Tuscan" wine from elsewhere in this large central Italian region. You taste the ripeness and soft fruit weight that comes from a coastal appellation with especially bright luminosity and warm Mediterranean offshore breezes. Sassicaia from the cool vintages is a famously reticent or withholding wine in its earliest years, requiring a long lead time before it eases into an ideal drinking window. That's definitely not the case here. This wine is beautiful and compelling straight out of the gate, showing a lovely mix of dark fruit, oak spice, balanced freshness, textural richness, soft tannins and an expertly contained 14% alcohol content. The wine's immediate character is what distinguishes this vintage, and I wouldn't get too fussed by exaggerated cellar-aging ambitions. The wine awards sheer pleasure in its current form, with dazzling primary fruit and soaring intensity over the near and medium term.

About this wine


Bolgheri is a prestigious wine region located in northern Tuscany, Italy, between the Mediterranean Sea and the hilly countryside. The region is best known for the production of red wines, often consisting of Bordeaux varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, known for their full-bodied character, complex aromas and ageability. Bolgheri's terroir, consisting of the combination of sea influence and the warm Tuscan climate, creates favorable conditions for wine production. Some significant wineries in this region are Ornellaia, Tignanello and Guado al Tasso, all of which have rich wine traditions and create some of Italy's most iconic wines.
