- 95 Punkte und „Editor’s Choice“ WINE ENTHUSIAST, Kerin O’Keefe: „This enticing red offers alluring aromas of fragrant purple flowers, dark-skinned berries and crushed mint. The elegantly structured palate doles out succulent blackberry, orange zest, licorice and saline notes set against taut, refined tannins. It's nicely balanced by fresh acidity. Drink 2022–2029.“
- 93 Punkte FALSTAFF: „Elegantes, dunkles Rubinrot. Öffnet sich auf zart speckigen Nuancen, dann nach reifen Himbeeren und Kirschen, im Nachhall nach zart erdigen Nuancen und Waldbeeren. Am Gaumen mit viel Grip und saftigem Tannin, hat salzigen Unterton, in sich gut abgestimmt, mit Nachdruck.“
- 17+ Punkte JANCIS ROBINSON, Tim Jackson: „First vintage 2000. Near-final blend; final blending and bottling end February 2021. 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot. Merlot grown on a neighbouring estate, outside Bolgheri. TA 5.95, pH 3.52, RS 0.11 g/l.
Mid ruby with a touch of sediment – a sample blend, rather than a finished wine, as with the last two release presentations. Quite reticent on the nose, just giving hints of what it’s got – a flash of creamy vanilla, a scent of ripe, plummy, black fruit and some toasted tobacco. Full bodied, with mouth-coating but fine-grained tannins. Plump and velvety – Merlot making its presence felt here. Pretty good length too. This is embryonic and a little closed, but I think has plenty to give – an attractive Guidalberto that will reward cellaring.“
- 93 Punkte JAMES SUCKLING: „Plum, currant and fresh-herb aromas follow through to a medium to full body, firm and silky tannins and a long, linear finish. It’s clear and already delicious, but another year or two will improve it.“

|Notizen des Weinguts:||Soil composition: Soils have different morphological characteristics with a high incidence of limestone areas rich in clay and stones; they are situated between 100 and 300 meters above the sea level facing South / South-West. Vine training: Cordon spur system Planting density: 6.250 vine stocks per Ha Climate: A very good vintage that influenced in a very positive way the wines of 2015. After a mildand rainy winter, the vegetative start was in the second week of April with the arrival of spring and higher temperatures. The spring rains helped a lot the vegetation and ensured the water supply for the following summer. The excellent flowering ended in late May, and the perfectsetting favored by a good climate. In June and mid-July temperatures were above the seasonal average, but by the end of July the temperatures got lowered returning to the average thanks to a long rainy day, really good for the vines. Rains helped a lot avoiding any physiological stress for the vines and helping them growing the grapes favoring veraison. The good temperature range between day and night that occurred from late August helped an optimal phenolic ripeness of the grapes. Grapes were of an excellent quality, perfectly ripened, pretty cool and crisp. The great structure and the elegant, soft tannins are the main elements of this vintage. Harvest: The harvest, strictly manual, began on 1st September with Merlot till the end of the month with the picking of Cabernet Sauvignon. Healthy and perfectly ripe grapes. Wine making: The very gentle crushing and destemming of the clusters of grapes was followed by fermentation in temperature controlled stainless steel vats (between 30° -31° C, only using the vineyard’s native yeast). The maceration on the skins lasted 10 to 11 days for Merlot and lasted 10 to 14 days for Cabernet Sauvignon. It was followed by pumpovers of the musts and délestagesin order to soften the wine tannins. The malolactic fermentation also took place in stainless steel vats. Ageing time: Following the malolactic fermentation the wine was aged 15 months in French and partially American oak barrels. It is released on the market after an additional few months of ageing in the bottle.|
