Tenuta San Guido Guidalberto
- Tuscany, Italy
Named after his ancestor, Guidalberto della Gherardesca, who was an agricultural pioneer in Bolgheri in the 19th century, the estate’s second wine Tenuta San Guido Guidalberto was born of a desire to explore how Merlot would grow in Tenuta San Guido. At first the equation usually included Sangiovese but it has settled into a 60% Cabernet Sauvignon 40% Merlot blend, which can be appreciated at a younger age than Sassicaia.
"A firm and silky red with just a hint of jam. Full body, polished tannins and a long, long finish. Tight now." 92-93/100 James Suckling (Sep-2018)
