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.
