This historic winery, established in 1940, is renowned for producing some of Italy's most iconic and sought-after wines. It is famously known as the birthplace of the acclaimed "Sassicaia" wine, a groundbreaking Super Tuscan that revolutionized the Italian wine industry.

The estate, situated in the Bolgheri DOC in the coastal Maremma region, benefits from a unique microclimate and terroir that allow for the cultivation of exceptional grape varieties, particularly Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. The winery's vineyards are meticulously cared for and extend across picturesque rolling hills, benefiting from the cooling influence of the nearby Tyrrhenian Sea, which contributes to the grapes' character and complexity.

Sassicaia, the flagship wine, has garnered international acclaim for its elegance, structure, and aging potential.
