The 2005 Sassicaia is another strong effort from Tenuta San Guido. Medium in body, it reveals an understated, delicate expression of smoke, herbs, tobacco and sweet dark fruit. The wine possesses compelling harmony and a gorgeous sense of inner perfume that flows from start to finish. This is an outstanding showing in a very challenging vintage. Sassicaia is mostly Cabernet Sauvignon, with a small amount of Cabernet Franc.

Dark ruby in color, showing aromas of currant, new oak and fresh herbs, with hints of spices. Full-bodied, with very chewy tannins and an outstanding concentration of fruit. Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Needs plenty of bottle age.

Beautiful. We opened it 5 hours before dinner, tasting it at opening and at two hour intervals. Initially, it was powerful, tight, tannic, but over time the wine opened up into a layered, strong, and beautifully rounded experience. Being such a young wine, the 5-6 hours of decanting was essential. The 3L bottle provided a unique and festive focal point for the glories of Sassicaia.
