Tenuta San Guido
In the 1940's, a project of passion was born when the truly visionary Marachese Mario Incisa Della Rochetta realised the vast potential of Bordeaux varities in Bolgheri a coastal area of Tuscany previously unknowne for its wine production. The project was honed over 20 years and only shared with close friends and neighbours at the time. However the great quality on display could not be kept a secret forever and eventaully under immense presure from their peers the family released the first commercial vintage of Sassicaia in 1968. Since then, allocated and acclaim have followed on of the most profound Cabernet dominant wines in the world to become the flagship Super Tuscan, and arguably Italy's most important wine.
A super vintage, Guidalberto once again defines it's own personality. Ripe dark cherry fruits dominate the pure and floral bouquet. The palate is dense and solid, with a harmoniouse balance between ripe cherry fruit and graphite minerality. A sneaky glimpse at what Sassicaia will offer in the years to come!
