Tenuta San Guido Guidalberto 2019
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. Pair with Bolognese and other meat sauce pastas, grilled pork and beef, or roasts.
The 2011 vintage was truly exceptional; one of the best vintages since 2000. Winter was cold, with below-average temperatures, especially in November and January. The early spring's mild temperatures and plenty of gradual rainfall without wind spurred vegetative growth of the vines. Summer was long and hot with average temperatures, except in July when it was warmer. Thanks to sufficient diurnal temperature shifts, the vines didn't suffer and the grapes were not overly mature.
