    Totally opaque black dark red colour with a dark red hue. Elevated ripe blackcurrant aromas fill the nostrils followed by red to dark cherry, spicy vanillin cedar, tobacco, scorched earth, black olive and leather notes. Medium weighted the palate is both elegant and rustic in its feel with savoury red to blackcurrant, red cherry, earth and dried herb flavours overlaying a back drop of dusty cedar, black olive and spicy tobacco characters. Fine grained tannins have a mild drying effect on the finish. Long, earthy and refined aftertaste.
    Cellar 5-6 years.

    A deft and bright blend to serve with a platter of creamy Camembert wedges, the 2018 Guidalberto is 60% Cabernet Sauvignon supplemented with 40% Merlot, showing a smooth and silky delivery of aromas with black fruit and sour cherry backed by spice, pressed flower and tilled earth. These are fragrant and delicate results fitted to a medium-weight finish that is driven by freshness and elegant tannins. Drink 2020-2030.

    San Guido’s 2018 Guidalberto is soft, open-knit and inviting. Sweet dark cherry, cinnamon, licorice and new leather fill out the layers in an undeniably attractive Guidalberto that will drink beautifully upon release. Finesse and elegance are the signatures. The 2018 is a terrific choice for drinking now, while some of the more powerful vintages of Guidalberto come together, or while waiting for its sibling, Sassicaia. Drink 2020-2028.
