The Tenuta San Guido Estate is home to the highly sought after Sassicaia. It was the Marchese Mario Incisa della Rochetta, father of Niccolo the present owner of the Estate, who was the pioneer that introduced non-native vines into the Italian wine scene. In 1968 Sassicaia – a wine which has Cabernet Sauvignon as its primary component and uses French oak barrique ageing methods – was first released and the rest, as they say, is history. The “Super Tuscan” was born and the fame and reputation of Sassicaia has only continued to grow. Sassicaia is in very short supply and sold on allocation only. Please ask your local sales representative for details. Guidalberto is a true second wine and gives earlier drinking pleasure than the first wines.
