Tasting Notes

Dark, deep and powerful yet nuanced and layered. This is full of flavour but delivers it weightlessly and with elegance and refinement. Full of energy, vivid and exciting. Magnificent.

It is beautifully balanced with beautifully integrated soft tannins and a long lingering finish. This is a wine that should be phenomenal in a decade or two and keep for an extremely long time.

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...
