I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.

    Nice. Is this their second after sassacaia? I've been drinking a case of their third 'Difese'.

  2. Nathan. Technically, in the traditional sense, the Difese is actually the second wine from Sassicaia. The Guidalberto is really its own wine. While the Difese is made from the “reject grapes” that didn't go into the Sassicaia, the Guidalberto is made in the same manner and style as the Sassicaia from grapes off a different set of vineyards. Think of Guidalberto as the lesser “brother” to Sassicaia, rather than a second wine. That usually means that the Guidalberto is frequently a much better and ageworthy wine than the Difese. Hope this helps.
