Sassicaia’s younger brother Guidalberto consistently offers incredible value from the Tenuta San Guido stable and the 2019 is a shining example. With 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot. it offers classical aromas of cassis and blackcurrant. The fruit is very pure and inviting, and harmonises beautifully with sweet spice notes from the oak: it spent 15 months in French barriques.

There is already a touch of cigar box adding an extra degree of depth and complexity. On the palate the wine is well-built and rather muscular, but the bright acidity keeps it light on its feet. There is great concentration of flavour with a long, rich finish. If you can manage not to drink it immediately, it will certainly reward your patience for 5-10 years.

In The Vineyard
The vineyards are planted on plots of land with different and composite morphological characteristics, as well as with a strong presence of limestone. These areas are also rich in rocks and rather rich in clay and are located at an altitude between 100 and 300 meters above sea level, facing South / South-West.
The 2020 Guidalberto is taut and tight with plenty of tart cherry and wild berry. The wine offers great freshness and tension with bay leaf, spice, wild cherry and pressed lavender buds. There is a hint of black olive too. The blend is equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
