6 in stock


Tenuta San Guido is named after the Saint Guido della Gherardesca who lived during the XI century. It is located on the Tyrrhenian coast, between Leghorn and Grosseto, in Maremma an area made famous by Italian Nobel prize winner Giosuè Carducci, and it stretches for 13 km from the sea to the hills.

Three are its defining characteristics: the Sassicaia wine, the Razza Dormello-Olgiata thoroughbred studfarm and the Bird Sanctuary Padule di Bolgheri. They divide the estate between the Padule on the coast, the horse’s training grounds on the plain, and the vineyards planted up to 350 meters on the hills. The latter have been given their own DOC, the DOC Bolgheri Sassicaia, the first, and so far only case in Italy of a DOC contained in one estate.

The wedding of Mario Incisa della Rocchetta and Clarice della Gherardesca on October 18th 1930 started it all.

They shared a love for thoroughbred horses that made them form a partnership with horse breeder and trainer Federico Tesio. Mario Incisa’s love of good wine made him plant Cabernet vines in 1942 for what was to become Sassicaia. Seventeen years later the Bolgheri Bird Sanctuary becomes Italy’s first private nature preserve.


The best known wine in the world, the epitome of balance in terms of body and complexity. A rich and elegant wine that represents the pride of Italian: in a word, Sassicaia. Sassicaia was born from the mind of Mario Incisa della Rocchetta that, even in the twenties, dreamed of creating a wine of breed.

He decides to plant Cabernet in the Tenuta San Guido, because he noticed the similarity between this land and the area of Bordeaux: stony, like a “Sassicaia”. Over the years, thanks to the valuable contribution of the winemaker Giacomo Tachis, Sassicaia has become the symbol of a high quality wine production, known and appreciated throughout the world. Sassicaia Tenuta San Guido will enrich all occasions and sumptuous dinners, but sipped in pleasant solitude and meditation will surprise you like no one. This reserve is a gem that we offer. A fantastic wine, of an exceptional winery and of an amazing vintage!
