Italy > Tuscany

This is a rich and elegant Super Tuscan from the renowned Tenuta San Guido winery, producers of the acclaimed Sassicaia. A fine red, this blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot opens with bright aromas of red fruit and dark berries with just a hint of earthiness and savoriness. Full-bodied on the palate, great ripeness of fruit and grippy tannins indicate the elegance of this bottle. 


94/100 - A classic blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, the Tenuta San Guido 2021 Guidalberto shows tart cherry fruit with darker tones of blackberry and plum. This vintage delivers especially chiseled and focused fruit characteristics that are elegantly framed by light spice, cola and earth. This vintage shows a heightened sense of intensity and territorial identity that is the hallmark of this storied estate.. - Monica Larner, Wine Advocate

93/100 - The 2021 Guidalberto, San Guido's blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, is soft, succulent and alluring right out of the gate. The supple contours of Merlot lend fleshiness to this mid-weight, racy Maremma blend. Ripe red cherry fruit, spice, leather and tobacco are nicely pushed forward. Best of all, the 2021 will drink well right out of the gate.Antonio Galloni, Vinous 

Lively crimson. Far from the most opulent vintage of this little brother to Sassicaia. It's presumably designed to be a little drier and more austere than most Bolgheri bordeaux blends, but the 2021 takes this to quite a degree. It's like a red bordeaux of 2021 or the early 1990s! Really a very dry, slightly tart wine. It may well blossom with time. Jancis Robinson MW

95/100 - According to Tenuta San Guido’s director of winemaking, Carlo Paoli, the 2021 is the best Guidalberto he has ever made. The percentage of Merlot was reduced back to the typical 40% this year because the quality of the Cabernet Sauvignon was so good. The 2021 Guidalberto is very deeply coloured, almost black with a narrow purple rim. It took an hour or so to really open up, but when it did, it had a wonderful range of aromas and flavours. Cassis and blueberry, blue flowers, and violet and iris notes are followed by a palate full of perfectly ripe blackberries and blueberries wrapped in gentle, cream flavours. This is a wine of velvety richness balanced by vivid acidity, with very pure, focused flavours and aromas. Delightful! - Susan Hulme MW, Decanter


The second wine of Tenuta San Guido and the brother to the legendary Sassicaia. Set in rolling hills near the Tuscan coast Tenuta San Guido has been a pioneer in bringing Bordeaux varieties to western Tuscany and cementing the Bolgheri area as one of Italy's best, so much so in fact that there is now a DOC dedicated solely for Sassicaia. While Sassicaia is mostly Cabernet Sauvignon with some Cab Franc, Guidalberto contains 40% Merlot, with the rest Cabernet Sauvignon, so rather than being seen as a 'little brother' it really stands out as a wine of its own.

This wine comes from fruit that doesn’t make it into Sassicaia itself but still from top quality vineyards. Now, taking into account that Sassicaia is trading at over £200 per bottle this makes Guidalberto an absolute steal.
