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.
2018 is a firecracker of a release, marked by an open, aromatic nose redolent of red cherries, wild strawberries, thyme and dried flowers. A mineral, lively freshness frames a joyful, supple palate that burst with juicy notes of red summer berries, red apple skin and blood orange. A lovely, charming wine that is as enchanting as it is drinkable.
A perfect partner to meatballs in brandy with buttery mash.
