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.

Sassicaia has been one of the leaders in the Super Tuscan revolution that has reinvigorated Tuscan winemaking over the past 30 years. This particular vintage reflects a return to Sassicaia's original blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Merlot. The 2002 offers a rare opportunity to enjoy this legendary producer's wine without having to wait a decade for it to soften. With a distinct lightness, its beauty rests on its fresh tannins and vibrant acidity. A great match for roast wild boar.
