Sassicaia 2015 at no. 1 of WS. Incisa della Rocchetta: “in the tradition of Italian wine”

The iconic wine of the Bolgheri brand of the Incisa della Rocchetta family, created by Tachis, is no. 1 of the “Top 100” of the USA magazine

After having agreed with the guides of the “Belpaese”, Sassicaia 2015, the legendary wine of Tenuta San Guido, the Bolgheri brand of the Incisa della Rocchetta family, born in the 1968 harvest thanks to Giacomo Tachis, conquers the first place of the “Top 100” 2018 of the Usa Wine Spectator magazine. However, if Italy also places the Chianti Classico Riserva 2015 of Castello di Volpaia (n. 3) and the Etna San Lorenzo 2016 of Tenuta Delle Terre Nere di Marco de Grazia (n. 9) in the top ten places, this is the first time for Sassicaia: only in 1991, with the 1988 vintage, managed to enter in the top 10 (n. 5).
For the Belpaese it is the fourth on the top step, after the Brunello di Montalcino 2001 Tenuta Nuova di Casanova di Neri in 2006, Ornellaia 1998 of Tenuta dell'Ornellaia in 2001 and Solaia 1997 in 2000. "We did not expect it - Nicolò Incisa della Rocchetta comments to WineNews - but it is the first time that it fills our heart with joy.
I am not sure, if it can be defined as the greatest wine of Italy, let the others decide, but it is certainly one of the greatest oenological expressions of the country. Fifty years after the first bottled vintage, we have to say that it is no longer an innovation, but that it represents the tradition of Italian wine”.
