2020 Guidalberto, Tenuta San Guido, Bolgheri, Tuscany

The 2020 is generous on the nose with juicy red plum, blackcurrant, liquorice spice and leather notes. The juicy and silky core is supported by a refreshing and energetic acidity as well as fine grained, yet present tannins.

Tasting notes

The 2020 Guidalberto is a gorgeous, classy wine. Less opulent than it can be, the 2020 impresses with its energy and drive. Sweet 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.
