Estate Notes

Sassicaia 1999 was purchased in its original wooden case and is in excellent condition.

Tenuta San Guido, situated on the western coast near Bolgheri, was brought under the holdings of Marchese Mario Incisa della Rocchetta in 1940. The Marchese took the pioneering move of introducing non-native varieties into the Sangiovese-dominated vineyards, such as Cabernets Sauvignon and Franc from vine cuttings taken from Bordeaux, and in doing so shaped a whole new generation of wines known as the Super-Tuscans – and thus revolutionising Italy’s image in the wine world.

Sassicaia has become synonymous with a standard of production that is without compromise, respected the world over.

Reviews

"Full-bodied, with extremely well-polished tannins and a long, long finish. A tight and racy young wine that needs time to come into its own. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Sangiovese." Wine Spectator
