Tenuta San Guido (Bolgheri Sassicaia)
Product not available in United States
Sassicaia is one of the most famous Italian wines in the world. A Supertuscan, born in 1944 from the idea of Marquis Mario Incisa della Rocchetta, who had the idea of planting in Tuscany typical Bordeaux vines, such as Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.
The Sassicaia 2014 comes from a year that is not particularly favourable from the climatic point of view, characterized by a cold and rainy climate. Nevertheless, the Tenuta San Guido has managed to produce a superb and elegant wine, with fruity and fresh notes, excellent to combine with dishes based on game.
