98James Suckling

Fabulous structure for a Sassicaia with powerful, polished, chewy tannins and ripe, subtle fruit. Aromas of blueberries, blackcurrants, rosemary and lavender. Full body, bright acidity and a savory finish. Juicy and lively.

97The Wine Advocate

This is a wine of excellent execution, beautiful balance and seamless intensity. The bouquet opens slowly to reveal delicate aromas of dark fruit and integrated spice that build in steady strength.

95Wine Spectator

...offers violet, black currant, cherry, wild herb, spice and mineral flavors matched to a dense, smooth texture. Shows finesse and intensity in a seemingly effortless manner. The aftertaste is long and focused.

92Vinous / IWC

...a wine of grace and understatement. Silky, perfumed and medium in body...a wine of grace and understatement. Silky, perfumed and medium in body...

Mid crimson with the strong balsam note...most appetising and elegant finish.


Italy, Tuscany, Bolgheri-Sassicaia

Bolgheri is a tiny village just inland from the western Tuscan coast with a storybook renaissance castle but no train station. To wine enthusiasts, however, Bolgheri is Italy’s most exciting wine region, and the Bolgheri Sassicaia DOC is particularly noteworthy. It was created in 1994 explicitly for Tenuta San Guido’s highly successful Sassicaia Super Tuscan. Sassicaia, first commercially released in 1968, is considered the first Super Tuscan and it remains a highly prestigious Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot blend. Bolgheri is the cultural heart of the Maremma, the coastal stretch of Tuscany. Marchese Incisa della Rocchetta planted Bordeaux varietals at Tenuta San Guido in the 1940s, though it took him more than 20 years to win acclaim for his Bordeaux-style blends. By the late 1970s the family was using French oak barriques in the production of Sassicaia, which is now regularly described as one of the world’s finest wines.
