BOLGHERI - Super Tuscan!
 

Bolgheri is located in the comune of Castagneto Carducci, a few kilometers north-west of the chief town and lies in the Province of Livorno in Italy, on the foothills of the Colline Metallifere, south of Bibbona. Bolgheri became an internationally known region following an event in 1974 arranged by Decanter where a 6-year-old Sassicaia won over an assortment of Bordeaux wines. Prior to this, Bolgheri had been relatively anonymous producers of ordinary white wines and rosés.

Due to the particular characteristics of the soil and micro climate sunny, dry and moderately windy, the grape varieties of Bordeaux origin tend to thrive, such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.

About Tenuta San Guido
 
The Super Tuscan Pioneer
 

 

Sassicaia is today one of the most sought-after fine wines in the world, known as a producer of "Super Tuscan" wine. This is largely because of the vision, energy and drive of proprietor Mario Incisa della Rocchetta. Its wine Sassicaia is considered one of Italy's leading Bordeaux-style red wines.The estate also produces a second wine, Guidalberto, and the third wine Le Difese.

The Sassicaia estate at Bolgheri came from Mario Incisa della Rocchetta's wife's family who had owned land there since 1800 - the name Sassicaia means,place of many stones, and the gravelly soil has been compared to those found in the Médoc. He planted Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot and engaged the services of Piero Antinori`s winemaker, Giacomo Tachis.

Sassicaia's first vintage was released to universal acclaim in 1968. Sassicaia is now widely accepted as one of the world`s greatest Cabernet Sauvignon wines and made history recently, being the first single wine to be granted its own DOC - Bolgheri Sassicaia. The wines of Sassicaia combine intense notes of cassis and cedary elegance, with extraordinary power and length.
