Sourced from three vineyards surrounding the Bolgheri area, this Super Tuscan is aged for 15 months in oak before being bottled. Guidalberto is considered to be the second wine from Sassicaia and can be enjoyed earlier than the top cuvée.
Aromas of cherry, blueberry and blackcurrants with hints of lavender, pepper and licorice. Full-bodied and extremely refined.
Subtle aromas of cedar, cassis, tobacco and a whiff of camphor slowly take shape in the glass. A blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot, the tightly knit, elegant palate delivers dried black cherry, red currant, blood orange and licorice while fine-grained tannins provide tight support. It closes on a coffee-bean note- 93 pts Wine Enthusiast
A blend of mostly Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, the 2017 Guidalberto appeals to the more informal side of sophisticated drinking. By that I mean it makes a great choice at lunch or for family dinners. Despite the accessibility and dense concentration of the fruit, especially evident in a warm vintage such as this, the wine's pedigree is evident in terms of the careful management of the structure and acidity. My samples were a little closed at first and needed some extra coaxing. Once open, the wine shows the dark fruit and exuberance of this hot vintage in Tuscany.- 92 pts Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
