Tenuta San Guido

For a long time Bolgheri's Castiglioncello was used as Sassicaia's winery as it was the closest building to the vineyards at more than 300 m a.s.l..

But as new vineyards were planted at greater distances and lower altitudes, a new larger winery had to follow.

The new, more central location was decided in the 1960s.

This is where it can be found today, on the cypress alley, close to the San Guido Oratory, which gives the estate its name.

A third smaller winery was built in 2007 by architect Agnese Mazzei, it houses the barriques for the ageing of the Sassicaia.

Tenuta San Guido Sassicaia 2005
"Sassicaia is a unique interpretation of the Cabernet variety, a wine of great breadth, complexity and longevity. The intense blackberry and cassis aromas, offset by notes of smoke and spice, are confirmed on a palate of lush concentration underscored by firm, ripe tannins carrying into a long,
