Winemaker Notes

Guidalberto is a second wine from the producers of the legendary Sassicaia. A full-bodied wine of intense red fruit flavor and and elegantly supple texture supported by ripe, silky tannins. The Merlot in the blend is expressed in sweet black fruit with overall aromas of ripe, concentrated berries offset by restrained spicy oak notes.

W&S 93
Wine & Spirits

Nicolò Incisa della Rochetta developed Guidalberto as a more approachable sibling to Sassacaia, blending merlot (40 percent in this vintage) with cabernet sauvignon. The 2011 is a harmonious beauty, with delicate red fruit and rose petal scents. The detail expands as the wine opens in the glass, a brisk, complex layering of red berry and tart cherry, clear and resonant. First produced in 2000, this may be the best vintage of Guidalberto yet.

JS 92
James Suckling

Aromas of fresh mint, berries and currants. Full body, with chewy tannins and a berry, vanilla, chocolate and currant aftertaste. This is a very beautiful wine from the makers of Sassicaia and a fraction of the price of the big wine. A blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40 % Merlot.

RP 92
The Wine Advocate

Made with Cabernet Sauvignon (60%) and Merlot, the 2011 Guidalberto opens to dark, rich concentration and beautiful aromatic intensity. You really feel the weight and importance of the wine thanks to its shapely aromas of dark fruit, plum, spice and bitter chocolate. The mouthfeel is incredibly supple and the rich density is long lasting. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2022.

WS 90
Wine Spectator

A lean, taut red, firmly grounded by dense, fine-grained tannins, with cherry, berry, spice and black pepper aromas and flavors. The finish echoes with fruit and spice. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Sangiovese

Tenuta San Guido
The Tenuta San Guido is a 7,500-acre estate located in the province of Livorno on the western coastal outskirts of Tuscany near the village of Bolgheri. Marchese Mario Incisa della Rocchetta acquired it through his marriage to Clarice della Gherardesca in 1940.

The legacy of Sassicaia began in 1944, when Mario Incisa acquired a number of Cabernet Sauvignon and Franc vine cuttings and planted them on a sloping hillside of the San Guido estate, called Castiglioncello after the 11th-century castle at the vineyard's upper edge. This tiny, 3.75-acre vineyard stood alone until 1965, when a second Cabernet vineyard was planted with cuttings from the Castiglioncello parcel; the gravelly, 30-acre plot would give the wine its name: Sassicaia, "the place of many stones".

With the radical changes in the D.O.C. system of regulations as of the 1994 vintage, Sassicaia's extraordinary reputation was acknowledged through the Italian government's granting the wine its own appellation.

Sassicaia is today considered to be the new plus ultra of Italy's great red wines for its consistent excellence and its intuitive spirit. Acclaimed by the wine world's most respected voices, Sassicaia remains the legacy of its creator, Marchese Mario Incisa della Rocchetta, and his son, Marchese Nicolò Incisa della Rocchetta.
