Sassicaia, from the Tuscan coastal area of Bolgheri, was established in the 1940s and sold publicly since the 1968 vintage. A blend of cabernet sauvignon and cabernet franc, Bordeaux-style grapes, Sassicaia has a terroir on the Tenuta San Guido estate and winemaking barriques that mimic that of Graves, Bordeaux. Sassicaia is not only the most collectible Italian wine, but the vision of its founder, Mario Incisa della Rocchetta, who wanted a bouquet and age-worthy elegance like that of Bordeaux, made a ground-breaking change to the world’s perception of fine Italian wine. Wines of this caliber from this region are now called “Supertuscan.”

Vinous (Stephen Tanzer) 87 points

Fresh, moderately deep ruby-red. Spicy, lively aromas of cinnamon and vanilla. Round in flavor and rather elegantly styled, but doesn't offer the weight or impact of a major wine. ST
