Sassicaia 1980 Tenuta San Guido
Sassicaia is one of the most famous Italian wines in the world, an oenological monument champion of balance, is the flagship of Italian oenology, one of the Tuscan wines that led the Supertuscans to be famous in the world. Born from an intuition of Mario Incisa della Rocchetta who wanted to fulfill his dream of creating a wine like the greats of Bordeaux, he decided to plant vineyards of Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon in his property, Tenuta San Guido.
Sassicaia Tenuta San Guido has become the symbol of the great quality of Italian wine production also thanks to Giacomo Tachis, oenologist of the estate, who was able to make it great and famous all over the world. It is a wine suitable for any occasion, for sumptuous dinners or long moments of peace and meditation, with a Sassicaia you will never make a mistake.
The grapes used to produce it come from soils between 100 and 300 meters above sea level, among the best cru of the estate, in a land with a unique conformation and a western, south-western exposure.
The Bolgheri Sassicaia is a regal wine, it has a brilliant ruby red, the nose has notes of cherries, blackcurrant, rosemary and lavender, raspberry leaves and various herbaceous notes, pipe tobacco and hints of oak. The sip is intense and surprising from the start, complex and soft with good body and infinite persistence.
It is a long-lived wine, not afraid of time, an immortal bottle. It is a perfect representation of the territory of Bolgheri, the first Italian wine so important that it requires its own regulations, Bolgheri Doc.
This is a masterpiece, an Italian oenological pearl that does not fear comparison with the great wines of France. Unique Sassicaia!
