The 2006 Guidalberto is a showstopper. This opulent, super-ripe wine bursts from the glass with the essence of sweet, dark fruit, smoke, tar and licorice, showing stunning depth in its richness and expansiveness. Everything is in the right place, as the wine possesses superb balance, particularly in the way its structural components are beautifully woven into the fabric of its fruit. Readers will have a hard time keeping their hands off this wine, yet it should continue to improve to age 20, perhaps beyond. An undeniable success, Tenuta San Guido's 2006 Guidalberto is a great example of an overachieving wine in this important Tuscan vintage. It is highly recommended. Guidalberto is Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Sangiovese.

Aromas of toasty oak and ripe fruit lead to a full body, with a solid core of fruit and a chewy finish. Needs some time to come around. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.

Boisterous! Notes of hearth, herbs and a lot of sweet blackberry flavour. Tannins are fine and balanced, great value for money.

About This Producer


Just south of Livorno, Tuscany, lies the Bolgheri Sassicaia DOC, and the Tenuta San Guido estate, where Sassicia is produced. The estate was originally owned by Marchesi Incisa della Rocchetta, and has been managed since WWII by his son, Niccolo. A true pioneer in the Italian wine industry, his experimenting with the introduction of non-native varieties to Italy, resulted in the world-famous Sassicaia. In Italian, Sassicaia means "the place of many stones" and is used as the proprietary name for the estate's Bordeaux-style blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. The vines of the Sassicaia vineyard were originally planted with cuttings from the prestigious Chateau Lafite-Rothschild. The wines of Sassicaia were so instrumental in creating the "Super-Tuscan" sensation that 1994, the Italian government granted Sassicaia its own DOC status in a sub-zone of the Bolgheri DOC. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats, and the wines are then aged in French oak barrique for 18 to 24 months prior to release. Sassicaia produces a second label called Guidalberto and recently released a third wine, Le Difese, that is virtually unavailable in the U.S.
