About

97

"We also tasted the 2017 vintage of the elegant, full-bodied Guidalberto Toscana IGT, a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot that had an exquisite entry of red and purple fruit enhanced by heather and blue flowers. The acidity blanaced perfectly with the fruit, and the plush body makes the wine accessible with or without food"

92+ Monica Larner - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

A blend of mostly Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, the 2017 Guidalberto appeals to the more informal side of sophisticated drinking. By that I mean it makes a great choice at lunch or for family dinners. Despite the accessibility and dense concentration of the fruit, especially evident in a warm vintage such as this, the wine's pedigree is evident in terms of the careful management of the structure and acidity. My samples were a little closed at first and needed some extra coaxing. Once open, the wine shows the dark fruit and exuberance of this hot vintage in Tuscany.
