This bottle comes from private collections, wine shops or rare wine dealers. The conditions have been verified by our experts but we cannot guarantee, after so many years, that the wine is still perfectly preserved. The sale of this bottle is therefore subject to the "as seen and liked" clause.
In the twenties, a student in Pisa, Mario Incisa della Rocchetta dreamed of creating a purebred wine. His ideal, as for the aristocracy of the time, was Bordeaux. No one had ever thought of making a “Bordeaux” wine in Maremma, an unknown area from a wine point of view. The decision to plant this variety in Tenuta San Guido was partly due to the similarity he had noticed between this area of Tuscany and Graves, in Bordeaux. Graves means gravel, due to the stony ground that distinguishes the area, just as Sassicaia, in Tuscany, names an area with the same characteristics.
Every year, a few crates were aged in the Castiglioncello cellar. The Marquis soon realized that the wine improved considerably as it aged. As often happens with wines of great stature, those that were previously considered defects, over time were transformed into virtues. The 1968 vintage was the first to be put on the market, with a welcome worthy of a Bordeaux Premier Cru. Today, Sassicaia is undoubtedly one of the most famous Italian wines in the world.
At sight, the wine has an intense ruby red color. The nose is expressed on hints of ripe red fruits, berries and cola, aromatic herbs and toasted almonds. On the palate, the sip is austere, rich and compact. It shows a sustained body and good acid component. It progresses on notes of dried fruit, with a deep, persistent finish.
Sassicaia goes deliciously with refined second courses based on red meats or game. Excellent with grilled meat, roasts and beef fillets or with traditional Tuscan dishes, based on wild boar.
