TENUTA SAN GUIDO 2011 "GUIDALBERTO"

60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot
Hailed as the standard-bearer of Italian enology, the historic Tenuta San Guido estate is known for crafting Sassicaia (Gambero Rosso’s “2013 Top Red Wine of the Year”), the world’s first Super Tuscan and an important contribution to Italy’s evolving reputation as a fine-wine producing nation in the mid-20th century. The 2000 vintage saw the first release of a new IGT Toscana wine-- called Guidalberto-- from newly planted vineyards dedicated to its production. While the wine is conceived differently from Sassicaia, it is shaped by the same soil and climate.

Earthy pepper, green olive tapenade, dark florals, mixed cherries and sea salt fill the nose. The palate starts with cherry and strawberry fruit as the soft tannins and steady acidity keep the wine uplifted and lively, as more earth and green olive blend with Kriek lambic and white pepper. This is big, muscular, forceful wine but impeccably balanced and lithe-- perhaps the perfect wine to enjoy now while waiting for the Sassicaia to be ready!
