2017 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.
