This wine, an icon of the illustrious Bolgheri, evokes a story of viticulture brilliance, entwined beautifully with the climatic nuances of the vintage.


An intriguing embrace of climate and terroir

The year 2000 was characterized by a relatively mild winter and a scorching summer bestowing an extraordinary vintage. This warm year resulted in an early ripening of the grapes thus creating an ensemble of richness without losing its habitually refined elegance.

The masterful blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc encapsulated perfectly the charming idiosyncrasies of the wine. Each sip reveals notes of ripe blackberries, infused with nuances of smoke and wild herbs underlined by firm tannins reflecting the heat-filled year.

Its resilience through time enables it to improve with elegantly poised complexity whilst strengthening its footing within the investment market due to its stable global demand.


The 2000 resplendence in a bottle

The perfect harmony between vintage climatic influences and winemaking prowess has resulted in this vibrant still-evolving powerhouse. Unfurling layers of dark fruit, spice, and minerality with an astoundingly opulent finish make every mouthful a symphony in itself.

In summary, the 2000 Sassicaia from Tenuta San Guido is one for the discerning investors seeking to add balance, depth, and Italian sophistication to their portfolios as we move into a new decade of wine discovery and investment.

Scores and tasting notes


It's hard to know what to make of the 2000 Bolgheri Sassicaia. It definitely follows the beat of its own drum and shows little in common with the vintages that precede or succeed it. It's a sure outlier. The bouquet offers dried fruit aromas with candied orange peel, apricot and green olive. It has been noted that fruit from young vines was blended with old vines in an effort to increase production numbers. That could explain the shortfalls of this vintage. All said and done, it shows little intensity and no possibility for further evolution.
