If I Could Buy Only One – March 4 VINTAGES Release

We asked our writers, “If you could buy only one wine from this release, which one would it be and why?”

Tenuta San Guido Guidalberto 2020

($68.95, Sylvestre Wines & Spirits Inc.)
David Lawrason –  I do not have a classic collector’s cellar, and I am certainly not collecting Sassicaia, which is arguably Italy’s most famous wine (last released in Ontario at $249). But I would consider spending $280 on four bottles of this Tenuta San Guido Guidalberto 2020. It is the second label of Tenuta San Guido which makes Sassicaia, It is a carefully poised, firm cabernet sauvignon from the coastal Bolgheri region.  The nose is very finely knit and complex. It is medium-full bodied very even and smooth, with some youthful tannic grit.  It is actually fairly approachable now and the length is excellent. Best 2025 to 2040.
