Dear Oenophile,

Today, we’re venturing over to Italy and exploring the renowned region of Tuscany! With endless rolling hills and diurnal temperature variations, Tuscany is home to some of our favorite wines, Super Tuscans. These beautiful wines came about when a group of producers skirted around the DOC regulations and decided they could make a high premium Italian-style wine while blending Sangiovese with non-indigenous grapes such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, and Cabernet Franc.

And to make your Thursday even better, we’re featuring the 2013 Sassicaia! This particular wine has stunned critics around the world with its concentrated color, rich flavors, and bright acidity. Enjoy this amazing selection of Super Tuscans today!

Cheers!
The Benchmark Crew

Sassicaia 2013

Wines due to arrive April-May 2019.

JS98: "Fabulous structure for a Sassicaia with powerful, polished, chewy tannins and ripe, subtle fruit. Aromas of blueberries, blackcurrants, rosemary and lavender. Full body, bright acidity and a savory finish. Juicy and lively. Better to drink this beginning in 2020 but so impressive now." -James Suckling
