The Guidalberto shows similar elegance and finesse that’s exemplified in Sassicaia, the sweet-fruited Super-Tuscan character of enticing aromas that Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot create when blended. Spending twenty months in one-third new oak barrels, this wine is irresistible two years from release, and will be ideal drinking over the next decade.


Tasting Notes

Aromas of clove and cinnamon on the nose, followed by heady and perfumed dark fruits on the palate. Hints of rosemary and mint, the velvety tannins are multi-layered and delicately structured. Beautiful drinking already, and over the next 5-8 years. AVAILABLE LATE SPRING 2018


Press Note:

Decanter: “This is a seriously good wine from an extremely good vintage. In addition to soft plump tannins, this exhibits freshness as well as generous plum and black cherry fruit. Tobacco and cedar notes lead onto a fine, tapering finish. Sassicaia’s second wine, first created in 2000 by Nicolo Incisa and Sebastiano Rosa from estate-grown fruit, some of which comes from younger vines and is a little lower in altitude. The blend is also significantly different, comprising 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot to create a wine which is clearly more approachable than the Tenuta’s grand vin.” John Stimpfig James Suckling: “Wonderful aromas of ripe cabernet sauvignon such as currants and plums. Medium to full body, fine tannins and a fresh finish. Linear and very long. Dynamic and beautiful. We will see, but this shows excellent potential. 94-95 points”
