Tenuta Guado al Tasso By Antinori Bolgheri Superiore DOC
On the nose the wine shows elegant notes of toasted oak, coffee, and spices followed by aromas of plums and black currants. On the palate, the initial impact is soft but firm with a vein of acidity which gives greater freshness and crispness than usual. The tannins are extremely elegant and the aftertaste is very persistent, with sustained and lingering notes of the coffee, berry fruit, and toasted oak first perceived on the nose..It is a vintage with a great aging potential.

"The 2014 Bolgheri Superiore Guado Al Tasso offers more excellent surprises from this underdog vintage. Its deep, velvety color stands out first. This is an immensely soft and smooth red blend from the Bolgheri area on the Tuscan Coast. The wine opens to dark fruit aromas with background notes of spice, sweet tobacco and dark cacao. The tannins are refined and smooth with succulent end notes of ripe fruit and blackberry. The wine's texture is thicker and more elaborate than you might initially suspect. In fact, very little here indicates that 2014 was a cold and difficult vintage. Due to severe fruit selection, production of this wine is down by 30%."

"Intense, matching black currant, blackberry, cedar and spice flavors to a sleek, light-weight frame. Drink now through 2020."

"The aromas of crushed berry, rose and violet are very attractive. Medium to full body, firm and silky tannins and a savory finish. Delicate finish."
