Tasting Notes

Autumnal fruit, tobacco and spice, this is unmistakable on the nose and could only be Haut Brion. A dense, earthy and mineral mid-palate, a sturdy, sinuous structure and yet the sleekness and refinement that only comes from the very best. The tannins provide strongly support and the finish is sumptuous with the wine driving through with abundant energy. Drink 2020-2035+ (50CS:41M:9CF) - 18 points

Reviews & Scores

A very complex wine, with black licorice, sweet tobacco, blackberry and earth. Full-bodied and long, with big, juicy tannins and lots of bright fruit, mushroom, earth and decadent fruit flavors. The most powerful wine of the vintage. Only 35 percent of the total production (normally this is 50 percent or 55 percent). Shows the selection. - 93-96 points

TASTING NOTES

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...
