Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot

6 x 75cl * 14% ABV * Bolgheri, Tuscany, Italy

The legendary Tenuta San Guido estate on the coast of the rolling hills of Tuscany's Maremma region is primarily known for Sassicaia, the wine that started the super-Tuscan movement. So legendary is it, that the Sassicaia vineyards have even been given their own DOC - Bolgheri Sassicaia, the first, and so far only case in Italy of a DOC contained in a single estate. Sassicaia was the sole label produced by Tenuta San Guido until 2000, when Guidalberto was introduced.

Much more than a "second wine", after more than 20 years of analysis and experimentation Guidalberto, a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, is now a wine of focus and expression of its terroir. grapes for Tenuta San Guido's Guidalberto come from three vineyard sites surrounding Bolgheri. A more approachable style in its youth than Sassicaia, it is rich and full-bodied, offering intense ripe red fruit, blackcurrant and spicy vanilla notes, characteristics that Merlot can offer even with a relatively short ageing period. After maturation in French and American oak, the final blend is rounded with depth and delightful earthy and savoury layers to it. 

"Lots of mint with sage and fresh rosemary to the currant and orange character on the nose, as well as some ripe raspberries. The palate is very refined with creamy and crunchy tannins that run the length of the wine. It shows a crunchy and energetic personality. Give it a year or two to come together, but it’s showing brightness for the vintage. Drink after 2027" 94 points, James Suckling
