The 2006 harvest in Bolgheri was particularly well balanced and began in the first week of September, starting with early ripening grapes, Merlot being the first, which had reached perfect ripeness. There was no rain for the duration of the harvest (apart from afew stormy days mid September)and the vines were in optimum health, with no stress from drought. This gave an ideal period of time for the harvest, in which each variety was picked in turn, when the grapes were fullyripe, starting with the Merlot, then the Syrah and, finally, the Cabernet Sauvignon (picked between the last week of Septemberand the first week of October).

The nose isveryrefined and elegant, with fragrant, sweetaromas. The aromasare well integrated, with harmony between the fruityand balsamic notes. The palate is consistentand elegant, from the attack, through the mid-palate to the finish. The aftertaste matches the characteristics of the aromas giving along, pleasant finish. These are the characteristics of Guado al Tasso 2006 as it is released onto the market -a wine with great classand a high potential forageing in bottle.
