3rd Wine of Sassicaia
A wine with attractive wild cherry and blackberry fruit aromas, the 2015 has supple textures and juicy ripe fruit flavours balanced by lively redcurrant characters and a hint of savoury spice on the finish. This wine will be delicious to drink from release.
James Suckling 93
Very aromatic and bright with strawberry, cherry and currant character. Hints of
oranges. Full-bodied, linear and tight, showing ultra-fine tannins. Potential here.
Wine & Spirits 91
The long, moderate 2016 growing season produced a voluptuous Guidalberto, with
velvety tannins and juicy red and black berry flavors. It has no hard edges at all, just
ripe fruit flavors and warm earthy tones that emanate an inner energy and freshness.
Layered and complex already, this wine has a long life ahead.
Robert Parker Wine Advocate90
A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese, perceive in the Guidalberto, which makes me
think it comes from the Sangiovese component that is only used in this wine. The
overall effect of that ripeness is that it downplays the wine's inner complexity. But this
entry-level red from Tenuta San Guido was never aiming for huge complexity to begin
with. Dark cherry and cherry is followed by wild strawberry and tangy rose hip. This
wine happily delivers on its promises of freshness and accessibility.
