Tenuta San Guido

Bolgheri Sassicaia Cabernet Sauvignon Cabernet Franc 2007

Fresh violets, black cherries half-cooked, near prunes, strong fresh cut hay, blackberry reduced and fortified, chopped oak, cedar, mushroom coffee. Chewy beauty spills red and black cherries across the palate. Light sarsaparilla tones enhance a complex array of thyme, oregano, herbs de Provence, espresso that turns rose tea. Rich with power and resonance that literally won’t quit!

Ornellaia Bolgheri Superiore Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 1994

1994 Ornellaia Bolgheri Superiore


Off vintage. A difficult year. Lighter in color than expected. The red fruits were very much alive but on a very delicate structure. Still enjoyable but wanted more from
Ornellaia. (Edited: On the second day, Ornellaia delivered! Wow. It is still delicate but in a perfect harmony.)


オフヴィンテージ1994年のワイン。思っていた以上に薄い色。フルーツ感は健在でしたが、非常にデリケートな構造の中に存在しているとでも申しますか、難しい年だったことがわかるワインでした。楽しめるワインでしたが、Ornellaiaからはもう少し厚み、芳醇さが欲しかった。(編集・追記: 2日目。Ornellaiaはやってくれました。とてもデリケートな構造の中に完璧なハーモニーが!)

It is very typical of a #supertuscan wine = deep ruby color, medium(+) aromas and flavours of black cherry, red and black plum and hints of cassis and mint with toasty undertones. The tannins need a little polishing. I believe it needs to age. — 2 years ago

When I first tasted this with Coravin we were sure it had TCA, but it wasn’t excessively bitter or astringent and it had plenty of rich ripe black fruit...so I uncorked it today and the cork definitely smells of old winery, old church and almost pine trees but I wouldn’t call it corked cork. Even with the cork issue the wine has a smooth oily attack and firm fine-grained tannins. I am thoroughly enjoying it. #bolgheri #tuscany #italy #supertuscan The winery should definitely look into their cork provider. — a year ago

Ornellaia Bolgheri Superiore Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2015

perfume of dark berries, fig, baking spices & tobacco ~ the dark berry flavors lean a touch jammy but are in check by a quick pop of crunchy red fruit, some Asian spices, and a hint of Mediterranean herbs ~ plush mouthfeel w soft dry finish ~ lovely #SuperTuscan to follow next 15 yrs! — 2 years ago

Centine Toscana Sangiovese Blend 2018

Delightful #supertuscan #toscanaigt blend with heady dark fruit + a delicate touch of toasted oak and vanilla on the nose. Palate balances rich fruit with acidity and distinctive earthy-spice notes from Sangiovese. Tannins are elegant. Matched up nicely with grilled beef burgers. Excellent QPR for ~$11. — 2 years ago

If you put it in a blind tasting it falls face first, but if you crack it open and don’t compare it to anything it’s a rather enjoyable wine. #bolgheri #supertuscan #italy #tuscany — 2 years ago
