Why We're Buying

The Sassicaia Bolgheri DOCG is created from nothing else but the highest quality, hand-picked fruit. The vines are old (some dating back to 1950) yet vigorous. The result is a transcendent wine that has defined the region and earned multiple 100-point ratings from critics. Wine Spectator even voted 2018 Tenuta San Guido Sassicaia as its “Wine of the Year.”

Wine Enthusiast

Not the best vintage for Sassicaia enthusiasts or collectors, but certainly noteworthy thanks to defined herbal aromas such as rosemary and sage backed by black plum, black berry, tobacco, cigar box and leather. The mouthfeel is velvety and supple with unmistakable elegance delivered over a long, menthol-like finish.
