Grappa di Barili di Sassicaia is a single vintage grappa distilled from the marc obtained from Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes grown on the Tenuta San Guido estate. After distillation it is matured in barrique for 4 years and then a further 6 months in the oak barrels in which Sassicaia was previously refined.
Producer Information: Tenuta San Guido
Quietly, elegantly and almost involuntarily, the Incisa della Rocchetta family set to release the wine that would revolutionise the Italian wine scene creating a totally new genre. the Super-Tuscan. Tenuta San Guido is now a legendary estate and was first planted in the 1940s by the Marchese Mario Incisa della Rocchetta, who noted the similarity between Bolgheri’s terroir and that of the Graves. When, in 1968, Sassicaia was finally commercially released, it took the fine wine world by storm. Cementing its iconic status, in 1994 it was granted its own appellation – Bolgheri Sassicaia DOC.
