2007 Tenuta San Guido "Guidalberto"

SKU #1049130 92 points Vinous

 The 2007 Guidalberto is 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot, with most of the fruit coming from a property adjacent to the vineyards used for Sassicaia. About 20% of the wine consists of declassified barrels of Sassicaia. The 2007 Guidalberto is another sexy, ripe offering from Tenuta San Guido. The wine reveals gorgeous inner perfume and endless layers of fruit that coat the palate all the way through to the long finish. The 2007 is not likely to be as long-lived as the 2006, but I doubt that will much of a problem as these bottles are likely to be long gone by the time ageability becomes an issue. Readers will have a very hard time keeping their hands off this irresistible, sensual, opulent wine. The 2007 is another blockbuster Guidalberto! (AG)  (8/2009)

K&L Notes

This beautifully balanced wine is strongly marked by sweet black Merlot--the wine is 40% Merlot and 60% Cabernet Sauvignon) fruit character, with impressions of ripe, concentrated berries in the aroma offset by restrained notes of spice, vanilla and cedar. These carry onto the palate, which shows an elegantly supple texture supported by ripe, silky tannins, ending in a long, refined finish. The vinification facility for Guidalberto is a converted olive-oil mill at Tenuta San Guido which has been equipped with stainless steel tanks and independent cooperage. Fermentation takes place separately for each variety at a maximum temperature of 30º C (86º F), with a maceration period of fifteen days for the Cabernet and Merlot grapes and twelve for the Sangiovese. Malolactic fermentation is completed by the end of November. Oak aging takes place over twelve months in 225 liter French and American oak barrels, 30 percent of which are new and 70 percent of which are from prior vintages' use for Sassicaia. The wine is released two years after the harvest and is made to drink while you wait for your Sassicaia!
