Sebastiano Rosa, Consulting Winemaker

Sebastiano Rosa, the stepson of Nicolo Incisa della Rochetta whose family owns Sassicaia, brings an extensive wine background to the team. Upon graduating from UC Davis in 1990, Rosa participated in the 1991 harvest at the storied Château Lafite Rothschild.

From 1992 until 2002, he was the General Manager at Tenuta di Argiano in Montalcino where he worked with legendary winemaker, Giacomo Tachis, considered by some to be the father of the renaissance of Italian wine.  While Sassicaia was the first wine in that renaissance, his other label, Solengo, was the number 8 wine in Wine Spectator’s Top 100 and received 96 points in only its second vintage.

Rosa, the Technical Director of Tenuta San Guido from 2002 until 2011, managed the Sassicaia cellar where he started the second and third labels for Sassicaia: Guidalberto and Le Difese.
