TASTING NOTES

Among rows of cypress trees, sea air and evocative landscapes, there is Tenuta San Guido, extended for 13 km of unspoilt nature between the Etruscan coast and the Maremma hills. The name of the winery comes from San Guido della Gherardesca, who lived in the 13th century and was a relative of Count Giuseppe della Gherardesca. However, the fame and glory of the estate begins when Marquis Mario Incisa della Rocchetta takes charge of the management of the winery and begins the production of one of the best wines in the world, Sassicaia. Sassicaia takes its name for the stony and gravelly composition of the soil in which it is born, a wine with a strong character, studied and wanted by the Marquis inspired by French enology and the Bordeaux area. So it was that together with his friend and winemaker Giacomo Tachis, in 1968, the first bottle on the market came out. Sassicaia is a Bordeaux blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, vinification and malolactic steel. Aging for 24 months in French oak barriques, 40% of new wood. The climate of the year 2009 was optimal throughout the year. Cold temperatures during winter and persistent rainfall in spring, combined with temperatures slightly below seasonal averages. Budding and subsequent phenological phases began with a slight delay. Summer has seen an increase in temperatures above the seasonal average, but with an excellent temperature range between night and day that has ensured a perfect phenolic ripening of the grapes. The wine is an intense ruby red. The nose is an explosion of ripe red fruits, balsamic notes, vegetables, aromatic herbs and almond notes and vanilla. The mouthfeel is rich and structured, with a unique compactness. The wine is full bodied but has a nice acidic note that balances the taste. On the finish return red fruits and notes of dried fruit surrounded by a persistence and an immense balance. To be combined with the typical cuisine of the area, red meat and game. To fully appreciate its style, this wine should be served at a serving temperature of 16/18 ºC. Read more Read less
THE WINERY

Tenuta San Guido

Tenuta San Guido has a very ancient history. Suffice it to say that it owes its name to St. Guido della Gherardesca name that has been linked to the territory in which it stands for centuries. It is located in Tuscany, in the Maremma area between Livorno and Grosseto and a short distance from the Etruscan Coast. That same area that has always enchanted poets and artists of all kinds, and that Giosuè Carducci made famous among lovers of literature; but it is also the area where Tuscany's winemaking tradition has been carried on for centuries with passion and dedication. Since its founding, the winery has set itself the delicate goal of telling the story of the land to which it belongs by producing Tuscan wines of the highest quality, with the best grapes and the oldest knowledge. The desire to create a wine with excellent raw materials, the desire to represent Tuscany in the world and the passion for the territory can be found in every glass of the final product. The hectares available to the estate are raised different strains, including Sassiccaia and Bolgheri. Name and address of producer/distributor: Tenuta San Guido - Loc. Le Capanne, 27, 57022 Bolgheri (LI). Products from this winery should be stored in a cool, dry place away from heat sources.
