Reviews

  • "93 points. A 100% Sangiovese that was first produced in 2003 from a plot of vines planted in 1996, the 2010 Sangiovese Guido is a firm, age worthy red that has cedar-laced aromas of dry-aged beef, toasted spice, dried herbs and saddle leather giving way to full-bodied, balanced palate. Showing solid concentration and plenty of tannin on the finish, it needs 3-4 years in the cellar. Drink 2016-2025." (Wine Advocate)
