“Sassicaia's 2nd • Super Tuscan must have!”

From The Producers Of The Legendary Sassicaia

By David Gettenberg

In 1968, Tenuta San Guido made the first Super Tuscan known famously as Sassicaia. 

Among the top five Tuscan titans, Sassicaia is a Bordeaux blend from the prized Bolgheri sub-region.  At $250 per bottle, however, it may not be an everyday red.  

But....

At $60, the winery's second wine, Guidalberto, is nothing short of spectacular.  An amazing 2020 vintage has closed the gap considerably between these two wines.

Along with Sassicaia, the celebrated winery [has] other arrows to its bow, among which is noted this blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Brilliant ruby color. The nose is clean and dense, hints of currant and wild blackberry. Notes of eucalyptus with iodine and licorice closure. The palate is enveloping, with tannins well blended with the fruit and a closure mentholated and saline. Great depth."  Luca Gardini

Like many of the finest chateaux in Bordeaux, Tenuta San Guido crafts Guidalberto as a "second wine" using all estate Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.  The wine is shaped by the same soil and climate as its big brother, Sassicaia. 

Often called "Baby Sassicaia," this "Super Second" may be enjoy with grilled meat, wild boar bolognese, pizza, or on its own with a wedge of cheese. 

Delicious!

“The palate is enveloping.”

Luca Gardini • 96+ / 100

"Along with Sassicaia, the celebrated winery of Marchese Mario Incisa della Rocchetta has other arrows to its bow, among which is noted this blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Brilliant ruby color. The nose is clean and dense, hints of currant and wild blackberry. Notes of eucalyptus with iodine and licorice closure. The palate is enveloping, with tannins well blended with the fruit and a closure mentholated and saline. Great depth."

“This is a terrific showing.”

Vinous

"The 2020 Guidalberto is a gorgeous, classy wine. Less opulent than it can be, 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. There's a bit more Merlot in the 2020, but Guidalberto is increasingly made from lots that don't make it into Sassicaia, which explains the style of recent vintages. This is a terrific showing, especially considering the recent bottling. It's a fine relative value in Bolgheri's high-rent district."
