Large Format

Sometimes bigger is better. While most people are familiar with the magnum 1.5L size bottles, there are also individual names for even larger sizes: a 3.0L is called a double magnum, a Jeroboam is 4.5L or equivalent to six standard 750ml bottles. Then we get into the Rehoboam (4.5L sparkling wine), Imperial (6.0L), Salmanazar (9.0L), Balthazar (12.0L), Nebuchadnezzar (15.0L), and Solomon aka Melchoir (a whopping 18 litres!)

Tenuta San Guido 2017 Guidalberto 1.5L

A blend of mostly Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, the 2017 Guidalberto appeals to the more informal side of sophisticated drinking. By that I mean it makes a great choice at lunch or for family dinners. Despite the accessibility and dense concentration of...
