In the twenties, a student in Pisa, Mario Incisa della Rocchetta dreamed of creating a classy wine. His ideal, as the aristocracy of the time, was the Bordeaux.Così describes in a letter to Veronelli of 11.06.1974. "... the experiment origin dates back to the years between 1921 and 1925, when a student at Pisa and a frequent guest of the Dukes Salviati in Migliarino, I drank a wine from their vineyard on Mount Vecchiano who had the same distinctive "bouquet" of an old Bordeaux I just tasted more than drunk, ( because at 14 you do not allow me to drink wine) before 1915, at the home of my grandfather Chigi. "Having established with his wife Clarice in Tenuta San Guido on the Tyrrhenian coast, he experimented with several French grape varieties (whose cuttings he had recovered from the estate Dukes of Salviati in Migliarino, and not from France) and concluded that the Cabernet had "the bouquet I was looking for" .No one had ever thought of making a wine "Bordeaux" in Maremma, an unknown area under the terms of decision vinicolo.La to plant this variety in Tenuta San Guido was partly due to the similarity that he had noticed in this area of ​​Tuscany and Graves, Bordeaux. Graves means gravel, stony ground for distinguishing the area, just like Sassicaia, in Tuscany, an area with the same calls caratteristiche.Dal 1948 to 1967, the Sassicaia remained strictly private domain, and was drunk only at the estate.

It is a characteristic of Sassicaia to expect great results even in these less celebrated vintages. And this tendency was even more reinforced in the last decade. Sassicaia is intense, concentrated and deep ruby colour. Very complex and elegant on the nose, with scents of red fruits.
Strong, concentrated, with sweet and balanced tannins on the palate. Very long finish with very important organoleptic and poliphenolic aspects, which will ensure to this wine an extraordinary longevity.

Just drunk. Nothing to say, wine perfect with no defects.
Not worth the cost, however. Absolutely not good value for money. With that money you can buy other wines. Price is right for me 60 euro.
