An Evening With Tenuta San Guido

Wally’s was honored to host Priscilla Incisa della Rocchetta, co-owner of Tenuta San Guido, one of the top wine houses in the world and the producer of the world-famous Sassicaia wines. Guests were treated to a spectacular evening of tastings and special pours, paired with a menu designed by Wally’s Executive Chef Ryan Kluver.

The star of the tasting was the newly released 2019 Sassicaia, which was rated 99 points by Wine Enthusiast, and 100 points by Decanter, calling it “extremely graceful and intense with a lavender note enhanced by restrained bramble fruits, fermented citrus peel, an intense violet aroma and graphite minerality in depth… A perfectly woven structure is bound with signature freshness and fruit vibrancy, making this one for the long haul.”

In addition to this exciting wine, Tenuta San Guido shared three additional new releases for a total of four tastings:

  • 2019 Sassicaia
  • 2020 Guidalberto
  • 2020 Le Difese
  • 2019 Le Difese
