November 22, 2021 - Chez MG: mainly black cherries, already drinking well.
November 13, 2021 - drinking alongside 2017. more matured and balanced.
October 2, 2021 - This seems to have improved a little more in the past year. It has complexity and layers of taste that make it work so well with food or drinking by itself. I just finished the last bottle I had bought at $25 per bottle. At that price it was one of the best wine deals available. I think it sells for close to twice that now.
August 31, 2021 - Very good wine ! decant for an hour .
February 26, 2021 - Bu en appétit. S'ouvre après 1 ou 2h. Léger avec tout de même une belle profondeur.
December 31, 2020 - Figured I'd end this annus horribilis with my first San Guido experience. Got out this '15 Guidalberto (60% CS, 40% Merlot) and aired it for 3,5h. Upon initial pop 'n pour I would've sworn there's sangiovese in the blend, with ripe and juicy cherry, higher acidity.
After aeration this opened up nicely, juicy red fruit, red berry, cassis, clove,hints of vanilla along with finely structured tannins. Full-bodied, velvety mouthfeel. Very balanced overall. Finish is def. more than OK in length.
Also I get a touch of cocoa. This is a young and potent wine, like a boisterous teenager. Perhaps still a bit too young because I detect some green bell pepper in the finish. I don't know whether this is really a steal QPR wise @ 35-40 EUR but it's certainly interesting!
August 14, 2020 - blackberries and blueberries. leather and spice. concentrated fruit. on the back end smooth and elegant. Cab Sav predominance is very clear here.
little brother of the sass. different blend altogether so you cant directly compare or expect it to be similar. this is a different kind of wine. nothing great though. there are much better tuscan 2015s at this price point
July 19, 2020 - Certainly a nice wine but I am still thinking that San Guido is neglecting its second wine. They should take care of their label. It’s a matter of expectations, perhaps. Not convinced yet. I’ll stick to Sassicaia for special nights and open the Guidalberto for casual dinner, pizza and mozzarella.
July 6, 2020 - This is such a great wine at a reasonable price. Great QPR. Excellent for everyday drinking. A beautiful example of Super Tuscan.
June 13, 2020 - Great, but needs more time (as of 2020)
