This is another striking supple Guidalberto loaded with personality. Stylistically it is quite close to the 2007 but with perhaps a touch less body but equally silky polished tannins. Freshly cut roses spices and a burst of pure red berries add nuance on the finish. Guidalberto is no longer the stunning value it once was but it is quite gorgeous in this vintage just the same. This is easily one of the best vintages I can recall tasting. Guidalberto is 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2019. 92+ -AG

A rich dense red boasting black cherry blackberry and spice flavors. Shows purity and a solid structure followed by a fresh lingering aftertaste. Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot and Sangiovese. Best from 2012 through 2020. 5000... A rich dense red boasting black cherry blackberry and spice flavors. Shows purity and a solid structure followed by a fresh lingering aftertaste.

Vibrant violet hue. Black plum and cassis dominate the nose supported by hints of cedar and a smoky note from aging in French oak. This "baby Sassicaia" is quite concentrated on the palate with a focused fruit theme... Vibrant violet hue. Black plum and cassis dominate the nose supported by hints of cedar and a smoky note from aging in French oak. This "baby Sassicaia" is quite concentrated on the palate with a focused fruit theme similar to the aromatics. Leather soy and olive add complexity on the back end with just the right touch of oak giving the finished product a medium-full finish. Everything comes together on the finish with complete integration. With another 2 to 3 years this should really open up. Here's another great effort from the Sassicaia team!
