Tenuta San Guido, in coastal Tuscany's town of Bolgheri, produces Sassicaia, one of Italy's and the world's best wines (at over $200 per bottle) and the first “SuperTuscan” (1968). It is the only Italian winery to have its own DOC (Bolgheri Sassicaia)! The Tenuta also makes the entry-level Le Difese and this mid-level Guidalberto. Wine Advocate (Monika Larner): 93 “Beautiful and bold, the 2013 Guidalberto is one of the best editions of this wine ever made. It shows great energy and momentum with dark fruit, spice, tobacco, and black truffle that come together with impeccable unity. I love the heft and power that supports this wine at the back. Its tannic structure is firm but velvety and will continue to soften as the wine evolves over the next few years. I would suggest holding onto this bottle for [another year or two] before popping the cork. Drink 2016-30.” Sassicaia is typically 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Cab Franc. The 2013 Guidalberto is 60% Cab Sauvignon and 40% Merlot. Gentle crushing and destemming was followed by fermentation in temperature controlled steel vats using natural yeasts. Maceration lasted 12-14 days for the Merlot and 9-10 for the Cab with pumpover. Malolactic fermentation also took place in steel vats, after which the wine was aged in French (with a small percentage of American) oak for 15 months. The Tenuta was founded by Marchese Mario Incisa della Rocchetta who was followed by his son, Nicolò. Nicolò's daughter, Priscilla, is taking an increasingly visible role.
