Tenuta San Guido
Tenuta San Guido’s Sassicaia has a super silky and refined texture coating a full-bodied style. An iron fist in a silk glove and a simply stunning Super Tuscan red wine, Sassicaia has become synonymous with a standard of production that is without compromise, respected the world over.
Tenuta San Guido 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 fine wine world.
