A blend of 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot and 10% Sangiovese.
This wine is characterized by a very intense violet color. On the nose, it is very long and persistent; the palate has an excellent, well-balanced structure that is well-rounded, gentle and delicate. Its significant, organoleptic depth, which is soft and round, and good polyphenolic structure results in a wine that is best enjoyed upon release.
"Purple to the rim. Upfront black fruit aromas with compote-like intensity. Layers of blackberry and blueberry fruit with well-integrated, combed tannins that reflect the unctuous merlot (40%) added to the blend. Lengthy, supple finish."
The Wine News
"Sweet blackberry character, with hints of blueberry and black licorice. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a fresh herb and berry aftertaste. Very tannic. Needs time. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Best after 2011. 15,000 cases made."
"The 2007 Guidalberto is 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot, with most of the fruit coming from a property adjacent to the vineyards used for Sassicaia. About 20% of the wine consists of declassified barrels of Sassicaia. The 2007 Guidalberto is another sexy, ripe offering from Tenuta San Guido. The wine reveals gorgeous inner perfume and endless layers of fruit that coat the palate all the way through to the long finish. The 2007 is not likely to be as long-lived as the 2006, but I doubt that will be much of a problem as these bottles are likely to be long gone by the time ageability becomes an issue. Readers will have a very hard time keeping their hands off this irresistible, sensual, opulent wine. The 2007 is another blockbuster Guidalberto! Anticipated maturity: 2010-2020."
The Wine Advocate
"A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, Guidalberto is a thick, food-friendly blend that opens with bright ripe fruit and cherry as well as green herb and spice. It's soft and plush on the close with lasting rip fruit flavors."
