2003 Tenuta San Guido Guidalberto Toscana IGT
Guidalberto is a blend of 45% Merlot, 45% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Sangiovese. Fermentation takes place in temperature controlled stainless-steal vats. Maceration lasted for 17 days for Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, and 14 days for Sangiovese. The wine was then aged for 14 months in French and American oak “barriques”, one third of which being new ones.
DecanterRating: 5/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. A bit 'dumb' due to recent bottling, but has wonderful 'sweet' fruit and a fantastic length. Will be worth waiting for. Drink 2007-15. (JH)
