As the annual release of Tenuta San Guido’s star – Sassicaia – is upon us, as is always the way, the second and third wines: Guidalberto and Le Difese are released one vintage ahead.
Guidalberto is one of Italy’s best value wines offering a real insight into the Sassicaia-style; a wine that can be enjoyed at a younger age. It is named after the family member who planted the iconic cypress tree avenue which marks the entrance to the Bolgheri estate.
Le Difese is a Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon blend made for immediate drinking, featuring on the label and named after the tusks of the wild boars found roaming the extensive woodland and wildlife reserve on this revered estate.

Onward delivery from bond charges are not included, free delivery on orders above £100 does not apply. Reward Card points are not accruable or redeemable on ‘En Primeur’ or In Bond sales..
2005 Gran Reserva 890 “Seleccion Especial” | La Rioja Alta’s best ever wine?
Is the 2005 Gran Reserva 890 “Seleccion Especial” from La Rioja Alta “the new 1964”? The Gran Reserva 890 is La Rioja Alta’s premier wine and is one of Spain’s top age-worthy wines. It is only made in the finest of vintages, happening around three times a decade. It is only released once La Rioja Alta consider it ready, and in the 2005 vintage they are so sure of its quality the producer have labelled it as ‘Seleccion Especial’, using this moniker for only the third time in their 130-year history! They consider this as one of the greatest wines they have ever made.
The 2005 vintage was officially rated as ‘Excellent’ in Rioja, and at just 15 years old this is only just beginning to drink, with surely a long and illustrious future in front of it.
The wine is offered at a price of £520 for a case of 6x75cl in bond.
