A delicious wine. Supple tannins, deep garnet color, distinctive notes of lavender, blackberry pepper, leather and raspberry. Drinking well as a young wine. Cheers!

Lovely lucid structure with soft tannins that open up with time. A bouquet of delicate scents that goes along with any dish!

Youthful but already pleasurable. Very good quality with potential of being outstanding. Developing, but yet a bit mute complexity, pronounced intensity in a balanced and long finish.

The 2015 Guidalberto is a delicious, mid-priced red from Tenuta San Guido. Here, too the style is quite restrained for a wine that in the past has played more on textural richness and volume. At times, Guidalberto was richer and more voluptuous in style than Sassicaia, but the 2015 is done in a style that is more similar to that of its big brother. It remains to be seen if that is a true stylistic shift or simply a reflection of the 2015 vintage. In any event, the 2015 is very pretty. Sweet Cabernet Sauvignon aromatics, pliant red-toned fruit and mid-weight structure are the signatures. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, April 2018)

This wine was a nice complement to both fish and beef from Peruvian fare. While somewhat young and tannic, the wine is nicely balanced with enough acidity to go extremely well with food. As a standalone I feel that more time in the bottle is required.

Shows promise, however, as suggested by a previous reviewer, will benefit from time in the bottle.
