    Sassicaia and the Coastal Wines Tour: Full Day

Sassicaia and the Coastal Wines Tour: Full Day

  • City: Tuscany (Coastal Region)
  • Duration: Approximately 9 hours

Indulge yourself in the exquisite flavor of the Cabernet grape with guided tastings at two illustrious wineries, followed by a Tuscan lunch in the little village of Bolgheri.

Overview

Wine connoisseurs will certainly be familiar with the name, Sassicaia. This wine's ultra-famous status comes from the fact that it is one of the world's most expensive and precious wines; so famous that it even has a car dedicated to it, the FIAT 500 by Aznom. Sassiccaia's superb quality is due to the labors of Marchese Mario Incisa della Rocchetta who painstakingly planted French Cabernet grapes along the Tuscan coast and reaped the benefits of this non-indigenous grape's superior flavor.

On the Sassicaia and the Coastal Wines tour, you will taste this incredible Cabernet and indulge in its exquisite flavor, following an extensive guided tour of the winery grounds and wine cellar. You'll also get to sample the marvelous extra-virgin olive oil that is produced in the same region, whose unmistakable aroma permeates the hills of Tuscany.

Enoteca Tognoni, a rustic locale situated in the heart of the tiny village of Bolgheri, is the perfect place for an abundant Tuscan lunch. Last stop of the day is one of the wineries where Sassiccaia was first produced. Here you'll enjoy a final wine tasting and learn to differentiate between the various ages and flavors of the local wines.
