"With an intense ruby-red color, the wine has profound aromas of red and black fruits. On the palate, the wine's dense structure is balanced and elegant, with a silky presence, relatively low alcohol and noble tannins. In the mouth, this wine is long and persistent." —winemaker

Blend: 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot

Wine Anthology review:
Guidalberto was named after an ancestor of Nicoló Incisa, Guidalberto della Gherardesca, in honor of his contribution to the family legacy. The second wine is a 60-40 blend of Cabernet and Merlot, providing a focused and balanced quality like the classic Bordeaux style it pays tribute to. This 2013 features alluring aromas of dark fruit and bakers' chocolate with an edge of cracked pepper to liven things up nicely. With a velvet coating of tannins on the back end, it finishes long and satisfying.
"Beautiful and bold, the 2013 Guidalberto is one of the best editions of this wine ever made. It shows great energy and momentum with dark fruit, spice, tobacco and black truffle that come together with impeccable unity. I love the heft and power that supports this wine at the back. Its tannic structure is firm but velvety and will continue to soften as the wine evolves over the next few years. I would suggest holding onto this bottle for three to four more years before popping the cork." —Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate

"Fragrant, fresh and loaded with finesse, this blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot opens with scents of fragrant blue flowers, perfumed berry and a whiff of pine forest. The bright, silky palate delivers crunchy red currants, juicy raspberries and white pepper. It's nicely balanced, with firm, polished tannins and lively acidity. Drink 2016–2022." —Kerin O'Keefe, Wine Enthusiast Magazine

"Extremely attractive aromas of plums, light berries, and milk chocolate with just a hint of earthy spice. Currants too. Full body, soft integrated tannins and a smooth textured finish. Delicious to drink now or hold. Consistently outstanding quality." —James Suckling
