Fifty years ago, an unknown red named Sassicaia trumped the finest classed growth châteaux of Bordeaux in a blind tasting of Cabernet Sauvignon held by experts. That set the trend for Super Tuscans to become some of the greatest and most celebrated reds of Italy, a position they still hold today. Eschewing tradition they experimented with imposter grapes, Cabernet Sauvignon in particular, to make a substantial, ageworthy wine. Mario Incisa was the instigator of Sassicaia; his son Nicolò is the force behind Guidalberto. He wanted to experiment with Merlot, as well as produce a wine for earlier drinking. Today it's a dark, intense Cabernet, with plush, ripe Merlot, aged in mostly French oak for 15 months. The apogee of Italian finesse.

"Layered with cherry and chocolate aromas and flavors. Medium body, soft tannins and a savory finish" James Suckling
