Tenuta San Guido Guidalberto 2012
|Brand||Tenuta San Guido|
James SucklingAromas of blackberry and blueberry, with hints of wet earth and spices such as cloves. Full body with round, chewy tannins but polished and caressing. A juicy, succulent finish. One of the best ever. Drink or hold.
Wine EnthusiastRed currant, blackberry and cedar aromas mingle in the glass. The focused, elegantly structured palate delivers juicy black cherries, crushed raspberries, tobacco and white pepper alongside firm, fine-grained tannins. A licorice note closes the finish.
Wine SpectatorA 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.
