Tenuta San Guido Guidalberto Toscana Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 2015

$49.99$39.99

95 Points, James Suckling: "Fantastic fruit on the nose with currant, apricot and orange aromas that follow through to a full body. Extremely fine tannins and a bright finish. A tight yet generous red with so much going on. Best ever. A blend of 70% cabernet sauvignon and 30% merlot."

The 2015 Guidalberto is a delicious, mid-priced red from Tenuta San Guido. Here, too the style is quite restrained for a wine that in the past has played more on textural richness and volume. At times, Guidalberto was richer and more voluptuous in style than Sassicaia, but the 2015 is done in a style that is more similar to that of its big brother. It remains to be seen if that is a true stylistic shift or simply a reflection of the 2015 vintage. In any event, the 2015 is very pretty. Sweet Cabernet Sauvignon aromatics, pliant red-toned fruit and mid-weight structure are the signatures. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, April 2018)

Very focused wine. Deep dark fruit. We decanted it for 30 minutes. Great with our Italian meal!

60% Cabernet Sauvignon 40% Merlot Vintage elevage can vary, but is mostly 6-8 year old French oak barrels, with a small percentage of new French oak. The team at Sasaacaia do not look at Guidalberto as a second wine, specific plots are destined for this wine from the 10-24 year old Cabernet Sauvignon vines. Merlot does not even make it into #Sassicaia. The nose is serious, with pronounced complexity and density, focused and showing varietal nuances. Excellent grip and structure, fleshier fruit notes turn darker with deeper cherry, red raspberry and cassis fruit, sweet blue and violet floral notes. A sweet core of ripe and velvety tannin, while juicy acidity amps up the the fruit presence, while adding freshness and spine. This is a smart buy almost every vintage and 2015 is no exception.
