he Incisa della Rocchetta family were important a figures in the medieval and Renaissance history of Northern Italy The MARQyiSATE of incisa controlled the two banks of the river belbo. between the langhe and the plains of Alessandria, in the long line of the incisa della rocchetta family there stands out first of all Leopold, cameral magistrate to the 'Imperial Royal government of lombardy and veneto' up to 1840. when he left public office to ret irk to the ancestral home in rocchetta tanaro. here. in the family business. he would cultivate his passion for viticulture. leopold would publish two catalogues of the precious italian and foreign vines collected by him. books which are still today considered to be a bibliographical rarity. rich in observations and intuition that are still valid. Almost a century later his great-grandson mario incisa della rocchetta would draw inspiration from these catalogues for his grafts of bordeaux vine cuttings. first on the family lands at the occhetta and. with the success that is known worldwide. on the land of bolgheri. which became part of the family possessions in 1930 on h is marriage to h is beloved Clarice della Gherardesca. From its first commercialization 40 years ago. at the wish of mario incisa della rocchetta. on the sassicaia label there appeared a family seal dating back to Medieval times representing the ideal testimony of the continuous love of the incisas for their lands.

90 Points - Wine Advocate"Tenuta San Guidos 2008 Guidalberto is a very pretty wine laced with mineral-infused dark fruit. This is a decidedly smaller scaled, lithe Guidalberto that impresses for its overall balance and finesse. The structure of the 2006 and the exuberance of the 2007 are missing, but the 2008 offers superb drinkability and pleasure today and over the next few years. Dried flowers, licorice and new leather add the final nuances of complexity on the finish. The 2008 Guidalberto is Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Most of the fruit comes from vineyards that are separate from those used for Sassicaia, although Guidalberto always includes some barrels that dont make it into the top wine. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2015...." WA 10/31/10
