The Siblings of Sassicaia – New Releases From San Guido

We have just taken delivery of the latest release of Sassicaia and its siblings – Guidalberto and Le Difese.

The iconic wine of Sassicaia was born when the truly visionary Marchese Mario Incisa Della Rochetta realised the vast potential of Bordeaux varieties in Bolgheri, a coastal area. This project was honed over twenty years and only shared with close friends at the time. However, the great quality could not be kept a secret forever and eventually the family released the first commercial vintage of Sassicaia in 1968. Since then, accolades and acclaim have followed one of the most profound Cabernet dominant wines in the world to become the flagship Super Tuscan, and quite possibly Italy’s most iconic wine.

Sassicaia’s siblings Guidalberto and Le Difese are more approachable in their youth but still offer the perfumed fruit and structure of Italy’s most famous wine.

Sassicaia is available on allocation only. Please contact jonny@songbirdwine.co.uk to register your interest
