In 1968 — nearly 40 years ago — Tenuta San Guido first released Sassicaia, a wine that is hailed by many as the first “Super Tuscan.” The wine’s name was inspired by the gravelly soil of Bolgheri along the Tuscan coast (from the Italian sassi or “stones”) and was a nod to the famous Bordeaux appellation Graves (meaning “gravel”), which also inspired the winemaking style. Historically, the euphemistic term Super Tuscan has been used to denote fine Tuscan wines that were classified as vino da tavola or “table wine” because they did not technically qualify for DOC or DOCG labeling. Today, Sassicaia is its own DOCG and the classification IGT or Indicazione Geografica Tipica (Characterstic Geographic Classification) is generally used to distinguish the Super Tuscans from table wines.

This extraordinary tasting includes the new vintage of San Clemente (created for Vino and I Trulli owner Nicola Marzovilla, a Super Tuscan aged in large oak barrels) and 2000 Sassicaia, as well as an unusual Syrah blend from Lazio.

Participants will taste the following wines:*
