TASTING NOTES

Tenuta San Guido was born from the intuition of a man, Mario Inciso della Rocchetta of Piedmontese origins, who finds as an ideal place the Tuscan environment to plant his Cabernet cuttings. A lover of the red wines of the Bordelais Chateau, he decided to create wines with a Bordelais blend in his estate. Thanks to the particularly stony soils and the influence of the sea that mitigates the winters and refreshes the summers with its breezes, he decided to cultivate varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot, which have found the ideal place to grow. Aging also follows Bordeaux practices: the wine ages in fact for several months in small wood, that is barrique, reaching balance, harmony and getting a particular roundness. Guidalberto Toscana IGT is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot. The alcoholic fermentation takes place without the addition of selected yeasts, but only with indigenous yeasts, and then ages for 15 months in French oak barrels and partly American. To the glass Guidalberto appears bright ruby red. The nose expresses with immediacy the red and crunchy fruit of Merlot, to which are added later notes of coffee and aromatic herbs of the Mediterranean maquis. In the mouth it is full, with dynamic tannins despite the aging and a freshness that revives the sip. Perfect for a Sunday lunch, it goes well with red meat dishes. To fully appreciate the style, Guidalberto must be served at a service temperature of 18/20 ºC. Read more Read less
THE WINERY

Tenuta San Guido

Tenuta San Guido has a very ancient history. Suffice it to say that it owes its name to St. Guido della Gherardesca name that has been linked to the territory in which it stands for centuries. It is located in Tuscany, in the Maremma area between Livorno and Grosseto and a short distance from the Etruscan Coast. That same area that has always enchanted poets and artists of all kinds, and that Giosuè Carducci made famous among lovers of literature; but it is also the area where Tuscany's winemaking tradition has been carried on for centuries with passion and dedication. Since its founding, the winery has set itself the delicate goal of telling the story of the land to which it belongs by producing Tuscan wines of the highest quality, with the best grapes and the oldest knowledge. The desire to create a wine with excellent raw materials, the desire to represent Tuscany in the world and the passion for the territory can be found in every glass of the final product. The hectares available to the estate are raised different strains, including Sassiccaia and Bolgheri. Name and address of producer/distributor: Tenuta San Guido - Loc. Le Capanne, 27, 57022 Bolgheri (LI). Products from this winery should be stored in a cool, dry place away from heat sources.
