95/100 points James Suckling
As a taste of things to come, we are offering the difficult to source – not to mention incredible to drink – “Super Tuscan” Sassicaia 2012, produced by Tenuta San Guido, for £545 for a case of six. This excellent wine – 85 per cent Cabernet Sauvignon and 15 per cent Cabernet Franc, pictured above – is one of the finest vintages of the last five years, at least on par with the 2009, although embodying more freshness, pedigree and balance (characteristics that can be attributed to the cool nights experienced in the growing season. The cases will be available for delivery in July. We are also offering Tenuta San Guido’s second wine, Guidalberto, which is one of the best red wines in the world for under £25.
