Tenuta San Guido

Tenuta San Guido

Sassicaia needs little introduction. Five parcels of land, owned by the same family since 1800 and set five miles inland from the Tuscan coastine at altitudes ranging from 250 - 600 feet above sea level. Grown on stony soils, aged in 1/3 new french oak for twenty months, and a further six in bottle prior to release. A blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Cabernet Franc. It is a simple equation, yet from it comes Italian vinous royalty. Time and again the sense of terroir present in Tenuta san Guido's Sassicaia is recognised and revered. Silky tannins and finesse are the hallmarks, and always the focus on elegance over power.
