Description
2016 Tenuta San Guido Sassicaia - Bolgheri - 1 Bottle (0.75L)
Red wine - Italy

Sassicaia 2016 is a vintage worthy of praise, considered by some even
better than the exceptional 2015. The autumn was characterized by an unusually warm and dry climate, except
for some rare abundant rains. Proper winter started in late November with cold temperatures that remained low
both day and night, until the whole month of January. February, on the other hand, was more humid and with a
slight increase in temperatures. These precipitations were essential to ensure the water reserve of the subsoil and
guaranteed the vine's wellbeing over the summer. At the beginning of April, the sharp rise in temperatures
anticipated the sprouting of about 8-10 days. The proper arrival of the summer happened during the second half
of June, with beautiful sunny days and summer temperatures. Those remained in the seasonal average with the
exception of the second decade of July, which was very hot.
