Tasting Notes

This beautifully evolved wine retains its incredible core of pure dark cherry and blackcurrant fruit, spicy dried herbs and tea leaves, framed by tightly knit tannins and a svelte, gentle texture. There is incredible concentration here but a gentle, almost ethereal quality lingers in the mouth and creates a heady, aromatic perfume. Elegant yet powerful, this is a stunning wine that deserves to be enjoyed now though undoubtedly has a bright future ahead. This is very much Querciabella?s iron fist in a velvet glove.

Reviews & Scores

Mid ruby with dark centre and surprisingly youthful looking. Very fine, spicy nose, with the beginning of tobacco. Juicy cherry fruit and muscular, powdery tannin. Finish shows pure fruit flavours harnessed by muscular tannin. I love the palate weight of this wine. Score: 17.5+ Points Walter Speller

An impressive release that speaks volume of the pedigree of Tenuta San Guido’s wines. Guidalberto is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot. A voluptuous nose charged with blackcurrant, black cherries, damson notes is rained in by mineral, almost balsamic hints of black olive, mint, tomato leaf and fresh black pepper. The exuberant nose of youth shouldn’t distract from the...
