    Tenuta San Guido Sassicaia 2005

    Tenuta San Guido Sassicaia 2005

    • Year: 2005
    • Country: Italy
    Sassicaia 2005 from Tenuta San Guido is another one of those Super Tuscansthat might have had a rough time in 2005. Sassicaia is pretty much the undisputed king of Super Tuscans, and along with Tignanello and Ornellaiamake up the triple crown of Super Tuscan wines. With half the production of Antinori's Tignanello but always in demand, Sassicaia is considerably more expensive (around 180,000 bottles a year are produced) and personally, year on year, I prefer Sassicaia.   2005 hurt Tignanello and Ornellaia but did Sassicaia also take a beating? Not so much. It's not the best Sassicaia of the decade, it's not even better than the 2004, but its the best of the top 3 Super T's and for my marks, a 94 point wine.Sassicaia is a Cabernet Sauvignon wine with the smallest handful of Cabernet Franc grapes so really it is a remarkable job by Tenuta San Guido to produce such a fine wine on a summer that was unkind to Cab Sauv, but even worse forSangiovese and perhaps why this year it's clearly a better wine than theTignanello.   This is a pricey wine. Like the other Super T's and in a similar vein to what happened in Bordeaux last year, the prices haven't gone anywhere from the 2004 mega vintage. So if you can find a 2004 its a safer bet for investment or laying down. However the 2005's are really accessible and great for today and will continue to be at an optimum from around 2010-2020. The 2005 Sassicaia is clearly thinner than the 2004 so its a question of which style of wine you prefer and what you are buying the wine for. To drink of course? Hmmm, maybe not, Sassicaia from the best vintages sells for hot money at auction.

    Tenuta dell' Ornellaia Ornellaia 1996

    Tenuta dell' Ornellaia Ornellaia 1996

    • Year: 1996
    • Country: Italy

    Ornellaia, Tenuta dell' Ornellaia's flagship wine, was first produced with vintage 1985, from an extremely careful selection of the vineyards grown on the Estate. Produced in limited quantities, hand-crafted and vinified with the utmost care and attention to detail, Ornellaia has constantly received top ratings from the most influential opinion leaders around the world. Vintage 2005 marked the 20th anniversary of Ornellaia which was celebrated with numerous events all over the globe and with the creation of special anniversary large size bottles.

    Longtime fans of this wine as well as big-name bounty hunters should be happy enough with the '96 version, if their expectations aren't too high. It's full of expressive black-currant, smoke and earth notes. Plenty of chocolate and delicious red fruit flows onto the smooth palate and moderately long finish. It fades away gracefully. Maybe a step down from the '95, but still very, very sound.
