Reviews

  • "91 points. The 2012 Sangiovese Guido sports a translucent ruby color to go with outstanding notes of black cherries, dried herbs, rose petal and cured meats. It's nicely balanced, has classic typicity and will have a decade of longevity." (Wine Advocate)
  • "91 points. The aromas of dried herbs, fresh tobacco, rose petals, mineral, cranberry and cherry fascinate. The palate brings pillowy soft red-fruit flavors that show a sense of vibrancy and delicacy. It drinks more like Grenache than Sangiovese but after a sip or two, who cares?" (Wine Enthusiast)
