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.

This supremely elegant and age-worthy Sassicaia opens with an intense bouquet of black cherry, Mediterranean herbs, blue flower, cedar and leather aromas. Powerful but graceful, the palate delivers a vibrant core of black cherry accented with white pepper, mineral and balsamic notes alongside youthful but polished tannins and vibrant acidity. It’s not as exuberant as some of its counterparts, but it may outlive all the other Bolgheri 2010s. Drink 2018–2040.

Cedar, sandalwood and spice notes lead off, with cherry, currant and rhubarb flavors underneath. Linear in profile, with a firm base of tight-grained tannins, this lingers beautifully on the finish. Persistent from beginning to end, this just needs time to expand. Best from 2016 through 2027.

The 2010 Sassicaia was just released and it s an outstanding bottle. I think that people are going to love this newest Sass. The red is very aromatic with currant dried berry coco bean and hints of wood. It s full-bodied with intense yet very polished tannins and a long finish. It s very refined and beautiful with a tangy finish. The Cabernet Franc comes through here at the finish. Lively. Hard not to drink now ... Stylistically the 2010 reminds me of something like 2001 or 1979. These are soft and silky wines with friendly fruit and a juicy fresh and fruity style. The 1979 is still drinking extremely well today. And the 2001 is just starting to drink well now... James Suckling.

2010 Tenuta San Guido Sassicaia Bolgheri Magnum - Italie - Region: Toscane - Apellation: Toscane - Cabernet Sauvignon blend - 1500 ml.

The 2010 Sassicaia Bolgheri Sassicaia brings back some of the brambly rosemary and wild Mediterranean brush that was missing in 2009. This will greatly appeal to enthusiasts of Sassicaia’s trademark elegance. The wine shows extreme purity that brings its many beautiful aromas into startling focus and clarity. Lingering tones of black fruit and Oriental spice add subtle shades at the back. The wine mostly certainly shows its pedigree in the exciting and beautifully balance manner it evolves in the glass: It tells a new story each time you return to observe the bouquet. This is the harbinger of cellar longevity. Anticipated maturity: 2018–2040.
