Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot
75cl * 14% ABV * Tuscany, Italy
Tenuta San Guido is located on the Tyrrhenian coast in Maremma (Bolgheri). The estate is primarily known for Sassicaia, the wine that started the super-Tuscan movement. Sassicaia was the sole label produced by Tenuta San Guido until 2000, when Guidalberto was introduced. In 2002, a third label in the form of Le Difese was added to the range.
After more than 20 years of analysis and experimentation Guidalberto, a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, is now a wine with a clear temperament and a good interpretation of its terroir. It embraces a younger style that seeks fragrance and sweetness on the palate, characteristics that Merlot can offer even with a relatively short ageing period.
“The 2021 Guidalberto, San Guido's blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, is soft, succulent and alluring right out of the gate. The supple contours of Merlot lend fleshiness to this mid-weight, racy Maremma blend. Ripe red cherry fruit, spice, leather and tobacco are nicely pushed forward. Best of all, the 2021 will drink well right out of the gate." 93 points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous
