Sassicaia Wines

A Wine of Alliance of Ripeness, Vibrancy, Lightness and Intensity

Sassicaia is considered one of the most famous Italian wines around the globe. Born with the vision, intuition, and energy of the owner Mario Incisa della Rocchetta of Tenute San Guido, today this exclusive vin de pays are among most sought-after fine wines in the whole world.
Apart from Sassicaia, Tenuta San Guido is also known for producing Super Tuscan wines, Guidalberto, and Le Difese. Sassicaia was harvested for the first time in 1968 and quickly became a great success. Nowadays, Tenute San Guido vineyard carries the title of Premier Cru Bordeaux. The Tenute San Guido Sassicaia is made from 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Cabernet Franc. As all Premier Cru vineyards, grapes are hand-picked and subjected to soft pressing and fermentation in steel at a controlled temperature of 30-31 °C. After steel malolactic fermentation, the wine is placed in French oak barrels, where it ages for at least 2 years before being bottled. The wine is characterized by an intense and regal red color. When it comes to taste, a wide variety of red fruits provide a full-bodied taste, while soft tannins ensure a long lasting finish. The overall balanced perfection in the tasting makes Sassicaia suitable for all special occasions. In 1994, the wines of Sassicaia made history by becoming the first single wine in Italy to be granted its own DOC (Bolgheri Sassicaia DOC).
The intense notes of cassis and cedary elegance, with extraordinary length and power, granted these vin de pays the title of world`s greatest Cabernet Sauvignon wine.
