Tenuta San Guido Supertuscan Blend Toscana IGT Guidalberto 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

The wine is characterized by a very intense violet color. On the nose, it is very long and persistent; the palate has an excellent, well balanced structure that is well-rounded, gentle and delicate. Its significant organoleptic depth, which is soft and round, and good polyphenolic structure, results in a wine that is best enjoyed upon release.

Balanced, with blackberry, spice and mineral aromas lead to a medium body in this balanced red, with well-integrated tannins and a fresh finish. Best after 2011.

Guidalberto (a 60-40 blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot) opens with dense, inky concentration and fresh tones of forest fruit and wild blackberry. The wine is bright and silky with a fresh cherry fade: Pair it with spezzatino di manzo (classic beef stew).
