Tenuta San Guido Guidalberto 2012

Tenuta San Guido Guidalberto 750ML 2012      
Sku: 19115

Guidalberto is a second wine from the producers of the legendary Sassicaia. Grapes are harvested and transported to an independent cellar. Fermentation takes place separately for each variety in temperature-controlled steel vats before undergoing maceration. The wine is aged in French and American oak barrels and refined in bottle before release.

Tasting notes
A full-bodied wine of intense red fruit flavor and and elegantly supple texture supported by ripe, silky tannins. The Merlot in the blend is expressed in sweet black fruit with overall aromas of ripe, concentrated berries offset by restrained spicy oak notes.

A compact style, with cherry, strawberry, earth and tobacco flavors matched to a firm structure. This is chewy, but retains a sense of elegance courtesy of the vibrant structure. Fine length. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Best from 2016 through 2025. 24,250 cases made.-BS
Bright medium ruby. Crystallized blackberry, black cherry, cedar, spices and minerals on the slightly medicinal nose. Bright and supple, with lovely black fruit, oak and mineral flavors firmed by an edge of acidity. Lively, rather stylish wine with building, firm-edged tannins.
The 2012 Guidalberto (Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot) impresses for the approachable, yet intriguing, delivery of fruit. The style is fruit-forward and ripe, yet the wine is not banal. There’s a fluidity to the bouquet that brings it to cherry and blackberry with soft tones of leather and tobacco woven deep within. The mouthfeel is voluptuous and rich without feeling heavy or flat. The 2012 vintage shows good energy and verve, with a long flavor trail of chocolate and toasted espresso that leaves a favorable mark.

Food pairing
Pair with meat sauce pastas and roasted meats.
