The overwhelming success of Sassicaia, and now the introduction of two new wines, traces back to the ambition of Marchese Mario Incisa della Rocchetta to plant Bordeaux varieties in Tuscany in the 1940s. Tenuta San Guido is hailed as the standard-bearer of Italian enology.
Creator of the first-ever Super Tuscan—Sassicaia—first released to the market in 1968.
Sassicaia is so distinctive it was granted its own DOC, Bolgheri Sassicaia, as of 1994
Two additional wines introduced in 2000 and 2002—Guidalberto and Le Difese
Still owned by the noble Incisa della Rocchetta family.
