Discover More About Our Products

The Sassicaia is one of the most famous Italian wines in the world, whose name seems to derive from the characteristics of the soil from which it comes. The soils of Bolgheri have a high content of limestone and stones.

It was Mario Incisa della Rocchetta, formerly established at Tenuta San Guido, who had the idea of creating a wine from Bordeaux in the Maremma, a region which, at the beginning of the last century, was virtually unknown in the wine business. He had indeed recognised similar characteristics between the soils of Bordeaux and those of Tuscany: the intuition proved to be brilliant!

The Sassicaia 2017 is rich and complex, another great vintage of a wine that is already a legend. The nose can be recognised by a wide variety of notes, from ripe berries to roasted almonds, from cola to graphite, from Mediterranean scrub to bitter orange. In the mouth, too, the taste is powerful and persistent, made elegant by a beautiful acid vein and depth.

4/5

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.

4/5

Pretty aromas of nuts. Smoky notes in the mouth.
It was still a little too early to taste it.

4/5

I visited the winery and bought it a few bottles there.
Very dark Bordeaux colour. Smells like cedar wood or pine tree. An oil-textured wine.
