Toscana - Bolgheri - IT

Chris & Aaron is like a trip tale into the mind of a creative soul

Marchesi Incisa, Sassicaia. The first thing anyone mentions when talking about the Tentua San Guido estate is how it came into existence – and there's a reason for that, because the story makes for an interesting one. In the 1920s, the wine favoured by the aristocracy was bordeaux. The Marchese Mario Incisa della Rocchetta dreamt of creating his own 'thoroughbred wine', and, having settled at Tentua San Guido on the Tyrrhenian coast in the 1940s, began to experiment with cabernet sauvignon, breaking with the Tuscan and Piedmont tradition of using mainly sangiovese and nebbiolo grapes. Incisa had astutely noted the similarity in terrain between the Bordeaux region and the gravelly vineyards of Tuscany, and went on to call his wine Sassicaia, which is derived from the Italian word for 'stony ground'."

Wine type: red wine DOC - Marchesi Incisa, Tenuta San Guido -  Bolgheri Sassicaia.

Grape/blend: 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Cabernet Franc.

Type soil: the vineyards are planted on plots of land with different and composite morphological characteristics, as well as with a strong presence of limestone. These areas are also rich in rocks and rather rich in clay and are located at an altitude between 100 and 300 meters above sea level, facing West, South/West.

Aroma: it has the most charming lifted aromatics of dark black plum, bramble berries, and spicy peppery graphite notes.

Tasting notes: the palate is bold and plump with a sweet fruited entry showing exotic hints of tart Victoria plums, dried peaches, and red apple Bon Bons.

Serving suggestions: Sassicaia is delicious with refined main courses featuring red meat or game. Excellent with grilled and roast meat, with fillet steak and traditional Tuscan dishes containing wild boar. Serving 18°C.
