Wine Description

With a stellar 94 points from Wine Advocate, Tenuta San Guido’s 2021 Guidalberto is a harmonious blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot that captivates the senses from the first glance. In the glass, it reveals a deep, almost black hue, with a subtle purple rim.

The nose, as praised by Decanter with 95 points, gradually unfurls to unveil a delightful tapestry of scents. Cassis and blueberry intermingle with blue flowers, violets, and iris, creating an enticing aromatic bouquet. On the palate, this wine showcases perfectly ripe blackberries and blueberries wrapped in velvety cream, beautifully balanced by vivid acidity. It’s a wine of pure, focused flavors and aromas, a true delight to the discerning palate.

Vinous, awarding 93 points, describes the 2021 Guidalberto as soft, succulent, and alluring. This Maremma blend opens with a succulent and inviting character, thanks to the influence of Merlot. Ripe red cherry fruit, spice, leather, and tobacco dance gracefully on the palate, making this vintage exceptionally approachable from the start.

James Halliday, also giving it 93 points, notes that the wine presents aromas of blackcurrants, dark cherries, chocolate, ground spices, and crushed rocks. The medium-to-full body boasts supple and polished tannins, with hints of savory notes and dried mushrooms that linger through a satisfying finish.

Tenuta San Guido Guidalberto Toscana IGT 2021 stands as a testament to the passion and skill of its winemaker, Carlo Paoli. This wine showcases the best of both Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, resulting in a wine that is not just exceptional but also a true expression of the region’s terroir.

Critical Acclaim

WA 94
Wine Advocate
A classic blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, the Tenuta San Guido 2021 Guidalberto shows tart cherry fruit with darker tones of blackberry and plum. This vintage delivers especially chiseled and focused fruit characteristics that are elegantly framed by light spice, cola and earth. This vintage shows a heightened sense of intensity and territorial identity that is the hallmark of this storied estate.
DEC 95
According to Tenuta San Guido’s director of winemaking, Carlo Paoli, the 2021 is the best Guidalberto he has ever made. The percentage of Merlot was reduced back to the typical 40% this year because the quality of the Cabernet Sauvignon was so good. The 2021 Guidalberto is very deeply coloured, almost black with a narrow purple rim. It took an hour or so to really open up, but when it did, it had a wonderful range of aromas and flavours. Cassis and blueberry, blue flowers, and violet and iris notes are followed by a palate full of perfectly ripe blackberries and blueberries wrapped in gentle, cream flavours. This is a wine of velvety richness balanced by vivid acidity, with very pure, focused flavours and aromas. Delightful!
VIN 93
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.

Aromas of blackcurrants, dark cherries, chocolate, ground spices and crushed rocks. Medium- to full-bodied with compact but supple and polished tannins. Shows savory notes with hints of dried mushrooms and chocolate. Attractive with a lingering finish.

Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, two iconic grape varieties, are the heart and soul of many exceptional wines. This classic blend, often referred to as the "Bordeaux Blend," has its roots in the Bordeaux region of France, where it is believed to have originated. However, these grapes have spread their influence to various wine regions worldwide, each adding its own unique character to the blend. The choice of regions for growing Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes is vital, as climatic conditions and soil profiles significantly impact the quality of the wine. Bordeaux's moderate maritime climate with influences from the Atlantic Ocean provides the ideal conditions for these grapes. The gravelly soils in Bordeaux offer excellent drainage, which encourages the vines to dig deep for water,... Read More
