2016 Sassicaia, Tenuta San Guido, Bolgheri, Tuscany

Spectacular. Notes of bramble and cedar on the nose give way to a palate with so much refinement, balance, and elegance, yet a sense of power and energy that’s rarely seen. A wine to leave you speechless.

2016 Sassicaia, Tenuta San Guido, Bolgheri, Tuscany
Tenuta San Guido

Sassicaia is one of the most recognised red wines of Italy. It was first produced to be enjoyed exclusively at the eponymous estate by horse-racing mad Marchese Mario Incisa della Rocchetta. When he realised the ageing potential of this Cabernet-dominant Bordeaux blend, he released a little onto the market, starting with the 1968 vintage. He'd created an Italian thoroughbred, and the very first Super Tuscan from coastal Bolgheri.
