Description

Mario Incisa della Rocchetta aspired to craft a wine of true distinction. Drawing inspiration from the aristocratic tastes of his era, his vision was set on Bordeaux. The audacious idea of producing a “Bordeaux” style wine in the lesser-known viticultural landscape of Maremma was unprecedented. The debut vintage of 1968 marked the first release to the market, met with a reception akin to that of a Premier Cru Bordeaux.

Excellent vintage, displaying a ruby garnet hue of good intensity. The aromas are ethereal and enveloping, featuring notes of red fruit preserved in spirits, tamarind, and subtle hints of dried flowers. The tannins are more pronounced and slightly more bitter, indicative of maturation, with a warm and lengthy finish. This description encapsulates the qualities of Sassicaia 1999.
