"The desire to try our hand with a grape we have never used, Merlot, the desire to offer the consumer a product that can be appreciated younger and finally the opportunity to be able to further select the grapes to be destined for Sassicaia " Winery

"Outer quote mark The 2017 Guidalberto is a stellar wine. Rich, ample and resonant, the 2017 possesses superb depth and textural richness, both signatures of this warm, dry vintage. I suppose in the most technical sense, the 2017 is not the last word on complexity. But it is supremely delicious, it is that kind of wine opened and finished quickly - and of course, the ultimate goal of a wine is to deliver pleasure. The 2017 Guidalberto hits it out of the park on that level. (AG) Inner quote mark (3/2020) "94 points Vinous

Subtle aromas of cedar, cassis, tobacco and a whiff of camphor slowly take shape in the glass. A blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot, the tightly knit, elegant palate delivers dried black cherry, red currant, blood orange and licorice while fine-grained tannins provide tight support. It closes on a coffee-bean note." 93/100 Kerin O'Keefe
