Dear Friends and Wine Lovers,
Nicolò Incisa della Rocchetta the mastermind behind Sassicaia, the legendary Super-Tuscan that changed the face of Italian wine, released his first vintage of Guidalberto in
2000. Often referred to as the second wine of Sassicaia, Guidalberto is actually sourced from a separate site adjacent to the Sassicaia vineyards. Comprised of three
varietals, Cabernet Sauvignon (45%), Merlot (45%), and Sangiovese (10%), it has been described as "...the wine to drink while you wait for your Sassicaia."
Beautifully structured with vibrant sweet fruit, spice, vanilla and cedar plus a finish that lasts forever, this is a tremendously satisfying bottle of wine.
The 2004 Guidalberto which has just
been released, received the coveted Tres Bicchieri from Gambero Rosso magazine acknowledging it as one of the top wines from Italy. Antonio Galloni the most important
American critic of Italian wine wrote in Robert Parker's Wine Advocate that it "...beautifully captures the pedigree of its superior vintage," gracing it with 91
This is classic winemaking from Tenuta San Guido, one of the world’s great wine estates. We've seen bottles without this style and finesse selling for two or three times the
price as that of the Guidalberto, and as usual were saving the best part for the end... the price. Here's the deal...

UPCOMING INSTORE SEMINARS...
The European Classics with Jean-Luc Le Dû
Wednesday, July 25th - $80
What makes a bottle of wine a classic...? There is a reason why some wines never go out of fashion and continue to inspire us. Tradition, consistency, ability to age and pair
with local cuisine all play an important role. For this seminar we will taste and discuss archetypical examples of Bordeaux (Pauillac), Burgundy (Côtes de Nuits), Rioja, Brunello
di Montalcino, Barolo. German Riesling, Gruner Veltliner and Sauternes... in other words, the greatest wines in the world!
The Best from California and Oregon with Jean-Luc Le Dû
Wednesday, August 1st - $75
Pinot Noir grown in the good old USA has emerged from the giant shadow cast by Burgundy to establish an identity of its own. Winemakers are stepping up to the plate and
creating a distinctly American style that is totally hedonistic and full of delicious, ripe fruit. In this seminar we will sample some vintage bottles side by side with new releases
from the top AVAs in Santa Barbara County, California's Central Coast, Sonoma County and the Willamette Valley in Oregon.
How To Taste Wine with Yannick Benjamin
Wednesday, August 8th - $60
This has been our most popular seminar for beginners and advanced tasters who have found it essential in fine tuning their palate and dramatically increasing their drinking
Tasting wine involves three senses (sight, smell and taste) that identify four primary components (sugar, alcohol, acid and tannins). Once you develop the skills to distinguish
those elements a whole new world will open up as your senses will be heightened and you will be able to communicate more eloquently about the flavors you taste... Learn to
taste like a professional, without any preconceptions.
All wines will be tasted blind for this seminar which will be taught by Yannick Benjamin, winner of the "Best Young Sommelier
How Wine Evolves with Jean-Luc Le Dû and Yannick Benjamin
Wednesday, August 15th - $90
When fine wine matures it goes through a remarkable transformation increasing its complexity and depth. However, only a miniscule proportion of the wines produced are
capable of benefiting from extended bottle age, so what is in the bottle that allows this extraordinary change to take place? In this seminar we will compare mature bottles
with recently released bottles of the same wine, to develop an understanding of how wine successfully evolves in the bottle.
