Sassicaia Bolgheri Sassicaia DOC 2015 di Tenuta San GuidoSassicaia Bolgheri Sassicaia DOC by Tenuta San Guido was obtained from Cabernet Sauvignon grapes (85%) and Cabernet Franc (15%) grown in the prestigious homonymous DOC located within Tenuta San Guido, in the territory of Bolgheri (LI). The original vineyards are situated on calcareous soils rich in galestro, stones, and rocks (which give the wine its name) and partly clayey, at an altitude ranging from 100 to 300 meters above sea level. For this masterpiece of red wine, alcoholic fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature between 28° and 30°C without the addition of external yeasts. After malolactic fermentation, the wine was transferred to French oak barriques (1/3 new wood and the rest first and second passage) where it matured for 24 months, keeping the masses separated by vineyard of origin. The blending was in fact carried out just before bottling. Before being released on the market, Sassicaia rested in bottles for a certain period of time. The 2015 vintage (considered legendary) is the latest released on the market of this mythical red wine, one of the most acclaimed in the world, officially born in 1968 from the will of the Marquis Mario Incisa Della Rocchetta, eager to create in his estate a "wine of race" inspired by the great Bordeaux wines.

SASSICAIA BOLGHERI TENUTA SAN GUIDO DOC 2015: TASTING

Sassicaia Bolgheri Sassicaia DOC di Tenuta San Guido seduces the eye with its intense ruby red color. On the nose, it releases enveloping aromas of cherry, sour cherry, and small berries intertwined with hints of Mediterranean scrubland and more evolved notes of chocolate and toasted dried fruit. On the palate, it expresses a full and elegant taste with smooth tannins and well-integrated acidity. The long and deep finish reveals a clearer mineral texture. Exciting persistence. It pairs well with cured meats and aged cheeses, as well as with first and second courses of red meats and game.
