The Guidalberto is a second wine from the producers of the legendary Sassicaia and is meant to be appreciated at a younger age. It is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot
The 2018 Guidalberto is dark, sumptuous and quite powerful. Even with the extremes of the punishing growing season, the 2017 comes through beautifully, showing remarkable clarity and precision. Black cherry, plum, lavender and spice notes are pushed forward, but it is the wine's structure that gives energy and a real sense of direction. Time in the glass brings out an attractive red berry and floral character that adds freshness.
