Tenuta San Guido Guidalberto 2013
|Brand||Tenuta San Guido|
Wine AdvocateBeautiful and bold, the 2013 Guidalberto is one of the best editions of this wine ever made. It shows great energy and momentum with dark fruit, spice, tobacco and black truffle that come together with impeccable unity. I love the heft and power that supports this wine at the back. Its tannic structure is firm but velvety and will continue to soften as the wine evolves over the next few years. I would suggest holding onto this bottle for three to four more years before popping the cork.
Wine EnthusiastFragrant, fresh and loaded with finesse, this blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot opens with scents of fragrant blue flowers, perfumed berry and a whiff of pine forest. The bright, silky palate delivers crunchy red currants, juicy raspberries and white pepper. It's nicely balanced, with firm, polished tannins and lively acidity. Drink 2016-2022.
Wine SpectatorA lean, athletic style, offering black cherry, plum and spice flavors. Firm yet balanced, with accents of earth and tobacco on the long finish. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Drink now through 2020. 20,000 cases made.
