Sassicaia is the world's best-known Italian wine, the quintessence of balance in terms of body and complexity. It is a red wine that is at once the flagship of Italian oenology, the cornerstone for the excellence established later, and the keystone of the area's oenological renaissance. It was born from the ingenuity of Mario Incisa della Rocchetta who, as early as the 1920s, dreamed of creating a thoroughbred wine, as purebred as the horses he then owned in his own stable. So he decided to plant Cabernet Sauvignon and Franc grapes on the San Guido Estate, because of the similarity he had noticed between these soils and the Bordeaux area: stony, stony soils, just like a "Sassicaia."

Sassicaia Tenuta San Guido, thanks in part to the invaluable contribution of winemaker Giacomo Tachis, has become the symbol of wine production of the highest quality, known and appreciated all over the world, a cultural symbol like the hand of the master of Italian oenology who caressed it for a long time. It will exalt all grand occasions and sumptuous dinners, but sipped in pleasant solitude and meditation it will amaze like no other. The grapes originate in one of the estate's most celebrated cru, composed of a mosaic of natural elements. The unique conformation of the soil, the west, southwest exposure and the altitude of 100-300 meters have created the perfect cradle where this prestigious oenological treasure can germinate.

Bolgheri Sassicaia is a sumptuous red, with a precious ruby coat, like the stone to which it owes its color. The nose is captivating with notes of ripe cherries, blackberries, black currants, rosemary, lavender, raspberry leaves and herbaceous world, all accompanied by a hint of elegant oak and slight hints of pipe tobacco. On the palate it is appreciated for its intensity, vigor of the arduous terroir from which it comes, and by a texture perfectly embroidered by freshness and savoriness. Engaging: an expression to be heard and intensely nuanced. It loves time and does not fear it; in fact, it best expresses the story it holds as it ages. It is a masterpiece of the impervious land of Bolgheri, unique and with broad evolutions; it is even the only one to have a reserved appellation specification. An extraordinary excellence, daughter of a historic and symbolic winery in the Italian wine world! Number one
