Tasting Notes

This is a serious nose; plentiful and vibrant. There are some wonderful violet notes along with deep, dark brooding fruits, blackcurrant and plums in particular which are accompanied by superb notes of cinnamon, cloves and liquorice. The palate does not disappoint and continues in a similarly impressive fashion, the fruit is so fresh and pure, blackcurrants and blackberries along with other jumbled forest floor tones and a touch of smoke and liquorice which amplify on the finish. This is an extremely elegant and well balanced wine, very fresh, it has the structure to age beautifully.

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...
