Guidalberto is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot that carries the hallmark elegance and finesse that runs through Sassicaia. This wine is the younger brother of the legendary Sassicaia and, whilst it's not quite got the full power of its sibling, it's pretty darn close - making this fantastic value for what it is. It's a wine of real concentration and structure with lots of inviting ripe dark cherry and damson fruit on the nose as well as toast and spice. THE WINE ADVOCATE Rating: 93 - Drink Date: 2016 - 2030 - "Beautiful 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. - Monica Larner (Jun 2015)"
