2021 Sassicaia, Tenuta San Guido, Bolgheri 3x150cl

RP100
"Here it is: A quintessential Sassicaia that represents the excellence of the vintage and also respects the unique taste profile of this distinguished Tuscan blend of Cabernets Sauvignon and Franc.... The Tenuta San Guido 2021 Bolgheri Sassicaia offers impeccable balance, excellent freshness and absolutely no signs of over-ripeness. The fruit balance is ideal with a hint of crunch and lasting tension from pulp and skins. The tannins are deftly managed with firm grip and enough velvetiness to add volume and length. There is no greenness on the bouquet that instead offers mulled herbs and spice, with cinnamon and clove, layered delicately between mostly red and some purple berry fruits. Redcurrant, blueberry, sweet pomegranate and Rainier cherry run strong in this vintage. A fragrant hint of heritage rose emerges with time. The oak tones are geared toward gingerbread, hazelnut, cigar, sandalwood and something like a grilled sweet red pepper. To the palate, it offers nice weight with no heavy glycerin, and a rinse of acidity that adds to the wine’s natural energy, brightness and viscosity. That marked freshness opens the wine up to long aging potential, but you still need to give it more time in bottle." 100 pts., Monica Larner, robertparker.com

2022 Guidalberto, Tenuta San Guido, Toscana 6x75cl

JS94
“Deep and vibrant ruby red with oodles of vibrant juiciness already jumping out of the glass. Hints of toasted oak and some underlying herb notes with elegance and finesse flowing through on the... ripe mulberry and cherry palate. There is a forgiving tug of tannin to frame the beautiful structure and it is judiciously made, ambitious and age-worthy yet keeping early approachability in mind - while, if you’re lucky enough, you wait for its big brother Sassicaia to unfold”. Drink 2026 to 2035+ Mr Wheeler "Lots of mint with sage and fresh rosemary to the currant and orange character on the nose, as well as some ripe raspberries. The palate is very refined with creamy and crunchy tannins that run the length of the wine. It shows a crunchy and energetic personality. Give it a year or two to come together, but it’s showing brightness for the vintage. Drink after 2027" 94 points, James Suckling

2022 Le Difese, Tenuta San Guido, Toscana 6x75cl

“Bright ruby red and with a lovely ripe and aromatic hedgerow fruit nose, accompanied by a whiff of cassis and vanilla to round things off. Beautifully balance fruit and tannins already, and a... crisp underlying acidity to provide the underpinning for medium term ageing. The cabernet sauvignon in the blend takes you down the Bordeaux route, but there is always a question mark raised by the sangiovese as to where in Italy it sits. No matter - this is the best of both classic varieties expressed through its Tuscan terroir. Really lovely”. Drink 2026 to 2035 Mr Wheeler.

2021 Guidalberto, Tenuta San Guido, Toscana 6x75cl

DE95VM93
“The 2021 Guidalberto, San Guido's blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, is soft, succulent and alluring right out of the gate. The supple contours of Merlot lend fleshiness to this mid-weight,... racy Maremma blend. Ripe red cherry fruit, spice, leather and tobacco are nicely pushed forward. Best of all, the 2021 will drink well right out of the gate.” 93 points, Antonio Galloni, www.vinous.com
