San Guido

The World’s Most Wanted Wines

April 27, 2024

It’s that time of year again when Wine-Searcher goes through what’s in and what’s out, what’s hot and what’s not, and bring you all the latest hits. It is unlikely that many – if any – on this list will come as a surprise. However, what is worth noting that despite all the hype around regions like Burgundy and California’s Napa, all people really seem to want is Bordeaux.

Number three heads to Italy’s Tuscany. Tenuta San Guido’s world-famous Sassicaia, with its distinct blue and gold eight-point star label, is named after the stony soils it’s produced from. The wine is a classic Bordeaux blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, with the grapes picked just before they reach full phenolic ripeness. The resulting wine has an extremely impressive, aggregated score of 95 points. Falstaff International magazine describes the 2020 vintage as “bright ruby red, with a slight lightening on the rim. Precise and inviting nose, with notes of cassis and blackberry, plenty of tobacco, some smoke and cedar.”
