Description of Tenuta San Guido Guidalberto Toscana 2017

Tenuta San Guido Guidalberto Toscana 2017 (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Sangiovese)

TASTING NOTES:

  • View: Tenuta San Guido Guidalberto 2017 presents as a deep cherry purple.
  • Nose: Dark berries and currants, dark cherries, cigar box, mushroomy earth, roses and violets.
  • Mouth: Elegant and sumptuous red and purple fruit opening is decorated with subtle liquorice and blue flowers, supported by finely-textured tannins. A perfect balance of ripe juicy fruit and dense spicy oak, with a subtle underpinning of graphite. The finish is a marathon, not a sprint, with a last linger of coffee bean.

APPELLATION: Tuscany

VINEYARD: Tenuta San Guido, a producer in the Bolgheri DOC, known as a producer of Super Tuscan wines such as Sassicaia. Member of the Primum Familiae Vini.

GRAPES: 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot

AGEING: 15 months, mostly in French oak barrels, some in American oak barrels.

PREPARATION: Hand-picking commenced with Merlot at the end of August and continued into September for Cabernet, followed by manual grape selection. Soft pressing and destemming of bunches prevented over-release of tannins from broken fruit. Fermentation was in stainless steel vats at 26-28°C with no added yeasts. Maceration of 12-15 days for Merlot and 10-13 days for Cabernet. Frequent pumpovers and délestages to support aromatic expression of the musts. Malolactic fermentation in November in stainless steel vats.

PAIRING: Red meat, strong cheese, rich desserts. As delicious paired with steak, garlic mushrooms, and cheesy mashed potatoes as with white fish in a citrus and herb sauce. Divine with a cheese or chocolate soufflé.

RECOMMENDED SERVING TEMPERATURE: 16-18°C

ALCOHOL: 14%

It was a gift from a friend who had bought it here.
It had an intense colour. It disclosed a very nice smell of white roses. I noticed the 2017 a little astringent.

To buy Tenuta San Guido Guidalberto 2017 at Uvinum is so easy that I had no doubts.
Has a strong colour. Aromas of ripe fruits. Taste of blackberries and wild fruits.

Someone let me try it.
Almost brown edges. Fine aromas of raisins. Quite light, but was ok for my taste.
A good wine to toast with.

The best wine for a gift.
The colour was between red and brown. It uncurtains a scent of red and yellow roses. With a right roughness.
