Tenuta San Guido Guidalberto
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.
The harvest began in the first days of September with Merlot, starting from the vineyards located in the plains, followed by those located on the hills. The harvesting of Cabernet Sauvignon started towards the middle of September. The harvesting operations of both varieties ended between the last week of September and first days of October. Grapes were healthy, well pigmented, crunchy. Excellent extraction in young musts, which from the first days of fermentation have highlighted a good concentration and extract. The sugar levels were quite high and this resulted in a higher alcohol content than in previous years. Nonetheless the alcohol content is not too much felt on the palate, thanks to the elegance of the tannins, which are well ripe, integrated and velvety. This is also supported by a good balanced acidity, which makes the wine approachable and pleasant to drink, even at a young age. Compared to the 2018 vintage, for obvious reasons of climatic conditions that affected the vintage, Guidalberto 2019 stands out for its great complexity (average extract 34 gr /liter), aromatic component, maturity of tannins and balanced acidity. All of this combined, suggests a great aging potential for this wine.
