Tenuta San Guido Guidalberto Toscana IGT 2020
A super Tuscan wine that's at once powerful and accessible! Tenuta San Guido Guidalberto comprises of a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot, the grapes come from vineyards situated between 100–300 meters above the sea level with a south-southwest exposure.
After a manual harvest and careful sorting, the berries go through a gentle crushing. First fermentation occurred in temperature controlled stainless steel vats between 30–31°C only using the vineyard’s native yeast. Maceration on skins lasted 10–13 days for Merlot and 13–15 days for Cabernet. Pumpovers, délestages and malolactic fermentation in stainless steel vats. Ageing for 15 months in French and partially American oak barrels.
Nicolò Incisa, director of Tenuta San Guido of forty years, was inspired by his great great great grandfather Guidalberto della Gherardesca to create a new wine in 2000: "The wine was created for two reasons: first of all, the desire to see what we could accomplish with Merlot, a grape that we had never used before; second, the desire to offer the consumer a wine which could be appreciated at a younger age compared to our veteran Sassicaia.” Known as the younger sibling of the legendary Sassicaia, Guidalberto is a wine of real concentration and structure that's almost as powerful as its veteran brother.
Full and generous bouquet of ripe dark cherry, dates and blackberries with a backbone of leather, toast and spice. Silky and nuanced mouthfeel balanced with layers of cherry and wild berry fruit, stewed plums, oak and dark chocolate. Fine tannins and fresh acidity lend to complexity and pedigree of this impressive medium-bodied wine.
