Guidalberto, the second wine of Sassicaia, reflects the style and elegance of the first wine without the need for extensive ageing. A blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot, the aromas of the 2011 are complex and persistent with layers of dark cherry fruits intermingled with herbs and spices. The palate is supple and refined with sweet, ripe dark fruits and smooth tannins. A refreshing hit of acidity and defining mineral note on the long finish. Although it can be enjoyed in its youth, it will develop greater complexity with age. Drink from 2014 ? 2025.
Reviews & Scores
Mocha, espresso, plums and cloves form a highly expressive mosaic of aromas and flavors in the 2011 Guidalberto. Wonderfully open and seductive, the 2011 captures the essence of Bolgheri in a style that is resonant and super sensual. Silky tannins make the 2011 impossible to resist today. San Guido hit it out of the park with the 2011 Guidalberto.
