Sassicaia 2006 Magnum Tenuta san Guido
1 in stock
Cold and rainy winter months caused a delay in budding that warm spring days were unable to recover. This phenomenon, due to temperature excursions, induced irregular flowering which lasted for a long time, bringing full bloom in the first week of June.
The usual vigour of sprouts accompanied a good productivity even in younger vines that was artfully set by a thinning of the smaller clusters, a synonimous of vegetativeproductive balance. the summer, which was almost without rain, fortunately was never accompanied by excessive temperatures and this trend allowed the vines to develop a good aromatic potential. The grapes we were presented with at the beginning of the harvest were perfect: concentrated and uniformly ripe.
The Bolgheri Sassicaia ’06 will go down in history as one of the great Italian wines. Concentrated notes of black currant, bergamot and elderflower for a light and progressive palate that does not betray the extreme class and complexity of the subject. A wine that has an infinite perspective. … a masterpiece of our winemaking.
