Tasting Notes

While many Bolgheri producers root their production in the Bordeaux paradigm, Le Macchiole has established a niche in the single-varietal genre ? where Merlot has firmly established itself in its flagship wine, Messorio. Part of an unofficial, but nevertheless widely recognised, clique that includes the great Redigaffi, Masseto, Galatrona, and Percarlo, Messorio provides a compelling testament to Tuscany?s affinity for the variety. In 2008, this has never been more apparent. During Antonio Galloni?s visit, he noted that ?it is obvious the estate?s potential is limitless. Nowhere is a return to a more classic style in Italy more evident than at Le Macchiole?, awarding the ?simply marvelous? Messorio 2008 97 points ? unquestionably cementing its place in the upper echelons of Super Tuscans.

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...
