Tenuta San Guido
Tenuta San Guido is an Italian wine producer in the DOC Bolgheri in Toscana, known as a producer of "Super Tuscan" wine. It produces Sassicaia a Bordeaux-style red wine. The estate also produces a second wine, Guidalberto, and a third wine, Le Difese. Tenuta San Guido is member of the Primum Familiae Vini.
Tenuta San Guido was established by marchese Mario Incisa della Rocchetta, who was also co-owner of the race horse Ribot. Considered the seminal "Super Tuscan", the name Sassicaia (Italian sasso meaning "stone", indicating a stony field) originated in 1948 when first produced by Incisa della Rocchetta using Cabernet Sauvignon vines and for years only used for family consumption.
Inside the Tenuta San Guido, there are some buildings that, because of their location, their history, or both, deserve some attention. Two of these are Castiglioncello of Bolgheri, which, at 393 meters, is the highest residential locality of the municipality, and the Oratory of San Guido, the octagonal church at the end of the cypress alley of Bolgheri.
