Tenuta San Guido Guidalberto Toscana IGT 2016

This Super Tuscan Guidalberto, little sister of Sassicaia, is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Merlot in the blend makes the wine more approachable at a younger age compared to Sassicaia. This is an exceptional value, excellent Super Tuscan.

"This wine is showing exceptionally well in this classic vintage. The 2016 Guidalberto (Cabernet Sauvignon and a smaller percentage of Merlot) opens to a full and generous bouquet and a beautifully rich and velvety appearance. This edition of Tenuta San Guido's mid-level wine offers a bigger aromatic profile, more texture and more volume as well. Dark cherry and blackberry segue to spice, tar, leather and sweet fruit at the end. The mouthfeel is elegantly shaped, silky and nuanced. This may well be the best vintage of Guidalberto I have yet to taste—and you can get this wine at a great price too." by Monica Larner
