Guado al Tasso Bolgheri Superiore
Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot / 2014
Made for the first time in 1990, Guado al Tasso is a superbly structured wine, offering layers of dark fruits, spice and earth along with well-integrated tannins - a fully modern wine that will carry the Antinori sisters and their ancestors far into the future. The 2013 Guado al Tasso is a wine of great elegance and finesse, silkier and more vibrant than ever. In a cool vintage, one with a very long growing season, the Cabernet Sauvignon (50%) brought notes of aromatic herbs and mint along with crisp tannins which added length. The Merlot (27%) gave concentration and texture and ample sensations of plums and blackberries. The characterful Cabernet Franc (20%) contributed aromatic and flavor elegance, intensifying the finish and aftertaste with notes of liquorice and cassis. And, finally, the Petit Verdot (3%) combined very well with other varieties, underlining the wine’s spiciness. Guado al Tasso is a great wine for chocolate mousse, roasts, and aged cheeses, pasta with red sauces, with most wild fowl and game and generally with savory dishes.
