Sourced from three vineyards surrounding the Bolgheri area, this Super Tuscan is aged for 15 months in oak before being bottled. Guidalberto is considered to be the second wine from Sassicaia and can be enjoyed earlier than the top cuvée.
Aromas of cherry, blueberry and blackcurrants with hints of lavender, pepper and licorice. Full-bodied and extremely refined.
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?- 95 pts James Suckling
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.- 91 pts Monica Larner, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
