James Suckling Review: 95 points
"This is extremely perfumed with aromas of lavender, cinnamon, blackberries, bark and blackcurrants. Full-bodied, extremely refined and polished. Gorgeous fruit and balance. Best ever bottling of this pretty wine from the producers of Sassicaia? Drink or hold."
Wine Advocate Review: 94+ points
"This wine is showing exceptionally well in this classic vintage. The 2016 Guidalberto (Cabernet Sauvignon and a smaller percentage of Merlot) opens to a full and generous bouquet and a beautifully rich and velvety appearance. This edition of Tenuta San Guido's mid-level wine offers a bigger aromatic profile, more texture and more volume as well. Dark cherry and blackberry segue to spice, tar, leather and sweet fruit at the end. The mouthfeel is elegantly shaped, silky and nuanced. This may well be the best vintage of Guidalberto I have yet to taste—and you can get this wine at a great price too."

"The 2016 Guidalberto is a wine of total precision and class. Nuanced and beautifully perfumed, with a good kick of mid-palate juiciness from the Merlot, the 2016 dazzles from the very first taste. Dark red cherry, plum, spice and floral notes add complexity on the persistent, silky finish. This is very nicely done."
