Tasting notes

Bogheri Sassicaia is a refined and intense red wine sowing concentrated expression of red and black fruits on the nose, with spice and wild herb aromas in the background. Rich, complex, and graceful attack, with a great depth and structure, followed by sweet tannins, and tobacco flavours over a very long finish.

Italy

Toscana

Toscana wine region around Florence in central Italy is home to the Chianti region, which is famous for Sangiovese-based red wines. Super Tuscan wines also helped the region to gain international recognition for outstanding quality wines based on Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Trebbiano is also grown for the production of white wines.

Moderate mediterranean climate

Tenuta San Guido

The soils in Toscana are formed from Pliocene and Pleistocene marine sediments, and from Quaternary alluvial and lacustrine deposits. The region is quite hilly, progressing inward to the Apennine Mountains. Here, many vineyards are planted on the higher elevations of the hillsides to benefit from a cooler weather. The soils composition lie mostly on clay, with a great level of nutrients and organic matter.
