Tenuta San Guido Supertuscan Blend Toscana IGT Guidalberto 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese: Tenuta San Guido's second label. 2005 was another classic vintage in Bolgheri, and Guidalberto certainly proves this. Enjoyable now, but will improve with another few years in bottle.

Wine Tasting NotesThis beautifully balanced wine is strongly marked by sweet black Merlot 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.
