TENUTA SAN GUIDO – TUSCANY – ITALY
Mario Incisa della Rocchetta was the first to produce a Bordeaux wine on Italian soil, recognizing in the Bolgheri area a resemblance to the Graves of Bordeaux (Graves means gravel, and it is the stony soil of the vineyards that gives Sassicaia its name).
In 1944, Mario Incisa decided to plant cabernet. 1968 was the first Sassicaia harvest to be marketed and it was an immediate success.
Today, his son Nicolò Incisa della Rocchetta is at the helm of Tenuta San Guido. Thanks to him, the wine business has further developed with the planting of new vineyards and the production of two further wines, Guidalberto and Le Difese.
