2012 Tenuta San Guido "Guidalberto" Toscana

SKU #1184159 93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Aromas 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. Inner quote mark (10/2014)

92 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Red 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. Inner quote mark (8/2015)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2012 Guidalberto (Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot) impresses for the approachable, yet intriguing, delivery of fruit. The style is fruit-forward and ripe, yet the wine is not banal. There’s a fluidity to the bouquet that brings it to cherry and blackberry with soft tones of leather and tobacco woven deep within. The mouthfeel is voluptuous and rich without feeling heavy or flat. The 2012 vintage shows good energy and verve, with a long flavor trail of chocolate and toasted espresso that leaves a favorable mark. (ML) Inner quote mark (10/2014)

91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A 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. Inner quote mark (8/2014)

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Bright medium ruby. Crystallized blackberry, black cherry, cedar, spices and minerals on the slightly medicinal nose. Bright and supple, with lovely black fruit, oak and mineral flavors firmed by an edge of acidity. Lively, rather stylish wine with building, firm-edged tannins. (ID) Inner quote mark (12/2014)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Fine, internationally styled nose of cassis and cherry. Attractive, juicy supple fruit with bold tannins on the finish. Youthful, but ready now. Inner quote mark (3/2015)

Vinous

Outer quote mark San Guido's 2012 Guidalberto is a bit lighter than most other recent vintages, but it shows lovely definition and purity in its flavors. Expressive floral notes meld into bright red berries and spices in a forward, supple Guidalberto to drink now and over the next few years. Guidalberto is 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot. (AG) Inner quote mark (9/2014)
