2020 Tenuta San Guido ‘Guidalberto’ (Super Tuscan)
2020 Tenuta San Guido ‘Guidalberto’ (Super Tuscan) The 2020 Guidalberto is a gorgeous, classy wine. The 2020 impresses with its energy and drive. Sweet red cherry, plum, mint, rose petal, cedar and pipe tobacco all take shape in this super-attractive, mid-weight offering from Tenuta San Guido. This is a terrific showing, especially considering the recent bottling. It’s a fine relative value in Bolgheri’s high-rent district. Vinous
A full-bodied wine of intense red fruit flavor and elegantly supple texture supported by ripe, silky tannins. The Merlot in the blend is expressed in sweet black fruit with overall aromas of ripe, concentrated berries offset by restrained spicy oak notes. Winemaker
From the same winery Tenuta San Guido that makes the pinnacle Super Tuscan Sassicaia, we have a great price on the 2020 Guidalberto down to $49.99. Super Tuscan’s make up some of the most iconic full bodied red wines in the world. No wine is more iconic than Sassicaia, one of the great wines of our time that sells for many hundreds of dollars per bottle. The same winery makes this great red that san be had at a fraction of the price. Guidalberto’s name comes from Guidalberto della Gherasdesca, Nicolo Incisa della Rochetta great great great grandfather. He lived in the early nineteenth century in Bolgheri and was a pioneer of modern agriculture, and is famous for having planted the cypress alley that inspired the poet Giosuè Carducci. The Guidalberto is styled very much the same as Sassicaia, the most famous Super Tuscan but in a more ready drinking style. This Cabernet based blend is spectacular in 2020. Vinous calls the wine ‘gorgeous’ and ‘classy’, we call the wine absolutely delicious!!
