Tenuta San Guido is owned by the Incisa della Rocchetta family and located in Bolgheri. The estate is home to the world-class wine that started the Super Tuscan movement - Sassicaia. Guidalberto is the estates second wine, made from a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot that has been aged for 15 months in predominately French and a small portion of American oak barrels.
Totally opaque black dark red colour with a dark red hue. There’s lovely fragrance to the nose with elevated scents of ripe red to black currants infused with violets morphing into earthy vanillin cedar, dried herb, light tobacco and spice notes. Elegant with medium body weight, ripe red to black currant and dark cherry flavours grace the palate with an undercurrent of earth, vanillin cedar, spicy dried herbs and leather. Dry, slightly dusty tannins yet very polished and quite supple in its mouthfeel. Good balanced acidity with a long savoury conclusion.
Cellar 5-6 years.
This is extremely perfumed with aromas of lavender, cinnamon, blackberries, bark and blackcurrants. Full-bodied, extremely refined and polished. Gorgeous fruit and balance. Best ever bottling of this pretty wine from the producers of Sassicaia? Drink or hold.
This wine is showing exceptionally well in this classic vintage. The 2016 Guidalberto (Cabernet Sauvignon and a smaller percentage of Merlot) opens to a full and generous bouquet and a beautifully rich and velvety appearance. This edition of Tenuta San Guido's mid-level wine offers a bigger aromatic profile, more texture and more volume as well. Dark cherry and blackberry segue to spice, tar, leather and sweet fruit at the end. The mouthfeel is elegantly shaped, silky and nuanced. This may well be the best vintage of Guidalberto I have yet to taste—and you can get this wine at a great price too. Drink 2019-2030.
