Tenuta San Guido Sassicaia
Sassicaia is the official first Super Tuscan that changed the course of Italian winemaking history. Today, Sassicaia has achieved a cult wine status with universal acclaim – celebrated by critics, coveted by wine collectors, and adored by Obama, Beckham and Rihanna.
Like a father who is a role model for his children, Sassicaia paved the way for a new generation of Bordeaux-style blends, bringing the region of Tuscany to fame. At a time when the reputation of Italian wine was characterised by mass-market exports, founder Marchese Mario Incisa decided to innovate the region’s offerings and set on a path to plant Bordeaux varietals after noting the similarities between Tenuta San Guido and Graves’ terrain. And the rest of it, as they say, is history.
Standing as the world’s sixth most popular wine (and the only Italian wine in the top 25) according to wine-searcher.com, Sasssicaia is a highly collectible Italian wine. The 2018 vintage is an epitome of finesse and subtlety, dazzling with its promise of extraordinary longevity. Serene aromas of sweet berries, light lavender and fresh sage greets you while blackberries and ultra-fine tannins follow through to a beautiful finish.
A highly limited collectible wine that is not to be missed!
