Guidalberto’s 2008 vintage has a typical ruby color with some violet highlights. The grapes are 45% Cabernet Sauvignon – 45% Merlot and 10% San Giovese. Classical plum, cherry and blackberry notes are very nice on the front nose. Cedar, tobacco, citrus and some oaky notes are behind. On the palate medium-high acidity creates a fresh wine with elegant tannins. A well balanced structure with a medium body. The wine has a nice integration of fruit and oak. We feel some cacao-chocolate base flavors on the palate beside the fruit notes. A long finish with lots of complexity. For me this is a really good wine which can be enjoyed at the moment easily.
