Sassicaia’s history started in the 40s with a red wine made by a winemaker, the Marquis Mario Incisa della Rocchetta, in his estate in Bolgheri, an Italian town near the coast in Tuscany. It became the prototype of the nascent Bolgheri region, inspiring many others and establishing itself as one of the great wines of Tuscany and Italy. And today, in 2018, 50 years after the first vintage, Tenuta San Guido Bolgheri-Sassicaia Sassicaia 2015 is Wine Spectator’s Wine of the Year.
Sassicaia has become a symbol of good wine, it ages magnificently. The 1985 vintage tasting was organized at the estate at the end of last year. 2015 is an important year for Italian wines, and Sassicaia has overcome every comparison aromas of black currant, blackberry, violet, mineral and rich and concentrated spices joined to a dense structure; vibrant acidity that drives the long aftertaste; and a beautifully integrated oak, which offers an impeccable balance.
The Sassicaia of Tenuta San Guido is an important and legendary wine, a Bordeaux blend of Bolgheri, aged for 24 months in barrique. Intense and complex, rich in herbaceous and mineral aromas, wild fruits, graphite, Mediterranean stain, and with a soft and robust character.
