Tasting Notes

Sassicaia’s younger brother Guidalberto consistently offers incredible value from the Tenuta San Guido stable and the 2017 is a shining example. With 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot. it offers classical aromas of cassis and blackcurrant. The fruit is very pure and inviting, and harmonises beautifully with sweet spice notes from the oak: it spent 15 months in French barriques. There is already a touch of cigar box adding an extra degree of depth and complexity. On the palate the wine is well-built and rather muscular, but the bright acidity keeps it light on its feet. There is great concentration of flavour with a long, rich finish. If you can manage not to drink it immediately, it will certainly reward your patience for 5-10 years.

Reviews & Scores

A firm and silky red with just a hint of jam. Full body, polished tannins and a long, long finish. Tight now.
92-93 Points, James Suckling

Le Serre Nuove dell’ Ornellaia 2016 benefits again from an exceptional vintage that highlights all the features ofBolgheri’s exceptional climate. Dark in colour, the wine shows a charming nose of perfectly ripe red fruit and spices. Thepalate is rich and well-rounded with beautiful velvety-textured tannins that coat the palate. A wine that combinesimmediate pleasure and great ageing capacity. Axel Heinz
