About Tenuta San Guido

The global fame of Super-Tuscan Sassicaia’s fame has obscured its decades-long emergence into the world. After making his home at Tenuta San Guido,... located in Bolgheri, Marchese Mario Incisa della Rocchetta noticed that the soils at his estate were rocky, reminiscent of the soils in Graves, Bordeaux. In 1944, he was struck with the inspiration to plant Cabernets Sauvignon and Franc, and for more than two decades, Mario made his Bordeaux-style wine solely for family consumption. Then Mario engaged esteemed enologist Giacomo Tachis to perfect the wine, and Sassicaia was born with its 1968 vintage. Sassicaia and its Super-Tuscan revolution changed the face of Italian wine — and it catapulted Tenuta San Guido into the highest echelon of wine producers. Year in and year out, Sassicaia holds its place as one of the most beloved, collectable wines in the world, and Tenuta San Guido’s sterling reputation only grows more lustrous.

Tenuta San Guido Sassicaia Bolgheri 2016 750ml

Tenuta San Guido Sassicaia 2016 I’m going to be bold and say it: the 2016 Sassicaia is pretty much perfect. A refined, polished, and incredibly detailed expression of an outstanding year, the 2016... Sassicaia is everything you could hope for from this legendary Italian wine. Pure, succulent cherries, blackberries, and plums fruits layer with violet petals, sun-warmed pebbles, pressed wild herbs, spice, and cedar in this epic Sassicaia vintage. Tannins feel chiseled, the acidity is electric, and the savory mineral finish is clean, persistent, and elegant. Give it a year or two in the cellar and then enjoy this legend-in-the-making for decades to come!
