More Sassicaia vintages

Sassicaia_67On the evening of the day that Jancis tasted Sassicaia back to 1975, West London wine merchant Roberson organised another tasting with Dr Sebastiano Rosa, technical director, and stepson of the owner Nicolò Incisa della Rocchetta. We started with the two IGT Toscana wines made in larger volumes than Sassicaia itself, Le Difese and Guidalberto, with the surprisingly well-preserved Sassicaia 1967 (right) as the coup de théâtre at the end.

See  Sassicaia – the background understatements for much more information on the property and the family.
