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.

Drank in 2010 - Huge disappointment. Decanted. Colour turning - nose short - acid high, no length in taste, not a 250 euro bottle. I have never found their other wines lacking. Maybe it's me but I could drink Le Difese till the cows come home and maybe I will But Sassicaia .....

Sassicaia was the first Italian wine to successfully establish itself abroad, and is almost universally recognized as the father of the new Italian wine family or simply the Super Tuscan Pioneer. Sassicaia is a unique interpretation of the Cabernet

Complex aromas of minerals, berries, tobacco and shells. Full-bodied, with well-integrated tannins and a succulent, refined aftertaste. A pretty Sass. Best after 2004. 13,000 cases made. -JS Wine Spectator. A Proprietary Blend wine from Tuscany in Italy. 1999 San Guido Sassicaia 3000ml

Tasting Notes:It?s hard not to wonder what exactly is going on at this famous estate of the Tuscan coast, the producer of Italy?s first international level Cabernet, and the 2000 Sassicaia is not going to resolve the perplexities. A reasonably fresh

Here's the original, trail-blazing Super-Tuscan, hailing from a very successful vintage. The only single estate Italian wine to be honored with its own DOC, this Bordeaux blend will show nicely on your table tonight after some time in the decanter. For best results, however, treat this bottle to another decade in the cellar.

By Ian DAgata Stephen Tanzers International Wine Cellar, Jan 11 (85% cabernet sauvignon and 15% cabernet franc): Very deep ruby to the rim. Musky aromas of dark plum, blackcurrant and tobacco leaf. Then juicy, intense and sharply delineated, w... Stephen Tanzers IWC. A Proprietary Blend wine from Tuscany in Italy. 1999 San Guido Sassicaia 3000ml
