JS 92 Pts. - WA 90 Pts. - WS 90 Pts. - 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. It's significant organoleptic depth, which is soft and round, and good polyphenolic structure results in a wine that is best enjoyed upon release.
According to James Suckling: Intense aromas of dried cherries and plums with hints of rose stem. Full body, with fine tannins and a crisp and delicious finish. Very yummy. Drink now or hold.
According to the Wine Advocate: The 2010 Guidalberto comes across as cool and inward in this vintage. Most recent Guidalbertos have been delicious upon release, but this is a wine that will need another year or two before it starts opening up. There is plenty of energy and vitality in the glass, but readers will need to be patient. Dark red cherries, flowers, licorice and a hint of tobacco are layered into the firm, structured finish. In 2010 the blend is 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2020.
According to the Wine Spectator: Cherry, black currant, violet and iron notes mingle in this medium-bodied, intense red, which tends toward a lean, sinewy profile, yet remains long and persistent. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Sangiovese. Best from 2013 through 2020. 15,000 cases imported. Rated 90+
