Tenuta San Guido is the result of a very long tradition combined with an ethical message, that has together been passed on from generation to generation. This was fuelled by a pioneering passion, aimed at doing good, and an abiding respect for nature.

Quietly, elegantly and almost involuntarily, the Incisa della Rocchetta family released the wine that would revolutionise the Italian wine scene, creating a totally new genre: the Super-Tuscan. Tenuta San Guido, now a legendary estate, was first planted in the 1940s by the Marchese Mario Incisa della Rocchetta, who noted the similarity between Bolgheri’s terroir and that of the Graves in Bordeaux. When Sassicaia was finally commercially released in 1968, it took the fine wine world by storm. In 1994 it was granted its own appellation – Bolgheri Sassicaia DOC – further cementing its iconic status.

The latest release of Guidalberto sees a return to the estate’s traditional blend, with a prevalence of Cabernet Sauvignon over Merlot. It is a wine with a clear temperament that faithfully interprets its territory of origin. It embraces a younger style, with Merlot-led aromas and sweetness on the palate, but leans on classic Cabernet structure to ensure graceful ageing in bottle.

“The 2021 Guidalberto, San Guido's blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, is soft, succulent and alluring right out of the gate. The supple contours of Merlot lend fleshiness to this mid-weight, racy Maremma blend. Ripe red cherry fruit, spice, leather and tobacco are nicely pushed forward. Best of all, the 2021 will drink well right out of the gate." 93 points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous
