The same talented team responsible for the 97-point ‘Sassicaia’ brings this stellar 2018 Guidalberto filled with intense red fruit, leather, and licorice with striking depth. Ripe, concentrated berries are offset by restrained oak, keeping the overall effect racy, juicy and delicious. This fresh red is primed (and priced) for immediate enjoyment, so don’t be shy with your supply!
The 2018 Guidalberto, tasted from an approximate blend from barrel, is positively stellar. I can only hope that the bottled wine is as fresh, vibrant and nuanced as this sample. A rush of black cherry, plum, spice, leather and licorice graces the 2018 with striking depth and nuance. Light on its feet and deep, the 2018 has a lot to offer. In many years, Guidalberto can be a rather rich wine, but in 2018 it is very closely aligned with the house style.
