SASSICAIA’S SUPER SIBLING: MEET GUIDALBERTO
The exciting 2019 vintage release of Sassicaia’s second wine, Guidalberto, from the brilliant Tenuta San Guido stable in Tuscany.
Guidalberto is one of Italy’s best values. A ‘Bordeaux-blend’ of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, the profile is similar to its bigger brother, ‘Super-Tuscan’ Sassicaia, but at a fraction of the price (Sassicaia usually sells at over £200 per bottle) and with earlier drinking in mind. The Guidalberto will come in at under £37 per bottle after duty & VAT.
Fondly named after the family member who planted the iconic cypress tree avenue which mark the entrance to the Bolgheri estate, Guidalberto is a consistently critically acclaimed: the previous two vintages score between 92+ and 94+ with top critics Antonio Galloni and Monica Larner.
‘Guidalberto 2019 stands out for its great complexity… there is a great aging potential for this wine.’

2019 Guidalberto, Tenuta San Guido
£170 per 6 bottle case under bond
60 % Cabernet Sauvignon, 40 % Merlot – this Super Tuscan is aged for 15 months in oak before being bottled. Guidalberto is the second wine from Sassicaia and can be enjoyed earlier than its bigger brother, however, it will age gracefully for the next five to 10 years. Aromas of cherry, blueberry and blackcurrants with hints of lavender, pepper and licorice. Full-bodied and extremely refined.
It’s worth noting the release price is less than 20% of that of the Sassicaia itself. To put that in perspective, the second wines of the Bordeaux 1st growths are typically closer to half the price of the grand vin. With 2019 shaping up to be a great vintage, we recommend stocking up while you can.
Offered under bond. Price shown is for one case and excludes UK duty and VAT which will be charged at the prevailing rate when the wine is released from bond. Expected in the UK from June 2021. Onward delivery from bond charges are not included, free delivery on orders above £100 does not apply.
