The Super Tuscan Mixed Case
The Super Tuscan Mixed Case
Savour Sassicaian, super Tuscan virtuosity for a notably small fraction of the price with Tenuta San Guidos 3rd and 2nd wines - 2021 Le Difese and 2020 Guidalberto (respectively). Available in a 6-bottle mixed case (3 of each) for £210, theres no easier, more delicious way to access the prestige and craftsmanship of Bogheris most iconic producer. Both of whose cuvées offer you stunning quality and irresistible value.
2021 Le Difese, Tenuta San Guido, Toscana
For Antonio Galloni at vinous.com, 2021 Le Difeses blend of cabernet and sangiovese is impeccably balanced, has a classicism that is hugely appealing and is at once one of [his] favourite vintages.
The 2021 Le Difese is redolent of crushed red berry fruit, rose petal, lavender, spice and sweet pipe tobacco. Medium in body yet nicely layered, the 2021 is impeccably balanced. It is also a sheer delight to taste at this early stage. In many vintages, Le Difese is a fruity, forward wine, but the 2021 has a nervy feeling of classicism that is hugely appealing. It's one of my favorite recent vintages. As it has been for some time, Le Difese is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon from the estate and Sangiovese purchased from several properties in Chianti Classico, with the energy of Sangiovese very much driving the feel in this vintage.

2020 Guidalberto, Tenuta San Guido, Toscana
Meanwhile, James Button at decanter.com admires in Guidalbertos sumptuous blend of cabernet and merlot intensity, tightness and concentration and fine grained tannins.
A renowned cuvée in its own right which, as Carlo Paoli, San Guidos GM puts it, has a satisfying drinkability, with its own personality different from Sassicaia, but similar in flavour and elegance. Its complexity and structure determine its great potential for ageing and refinement over a long period of time.
"Usually a 60/40 split, in 2020 Guidalberto (Sassicaia's little brother) is a 50/50 blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Spiced plums, dark fruits and cedar aromas lead to a palate of intensity, tightness and concentration, showing tangy and bright plum, raspberry, blackcurrant and pomegranate flavours with fine-grained tannins. Ages well. 93 pts., James Button, decanter.com
