Estate Notes

The Sassicaia 1985 is another brilliant example of what heights Cabernet Sauvignon can achieve in the soils of Tuscany…

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.

“The color remains an opaque black/purple, and the huge nose of minerals, licorice, blackcurrants, and smoky oak is persistent and intense. With extraordinary richness, full body, unbelievable concentration, and a moderately tannic, opulent finish, this thrilling wine remains young and largely unevolved. It has at least 20-25 years of longevity.“ Wine Spectator
