Tasting Notes

97 points Enthusiast: "Guado al Tasso is finally back. After a string of past vintages that exhibited some rubber-like aromas, the 2006 expression is a study in purity, focus and excellence. This wine is impressive on all levels in terms of intensity, personality and persistency. It’s rich and luscious with smooth tannins and lasting flavors of blackberry and spice. Drink after 2015." (03/10) 95 points Suckling: This is very floral and pretty on the nose with violets, licorice, berries, currants, and a hint of coffee. Full bodied, soft and round with a gorgeous long finish. Incredible class and depth with a long finish. Precision. Get started on this one tonight." (04/11) 95 points Spectator: "...intense aromas of blackberry, currant and dried flowers that follow through to a full body, with sleek, minerally undertones and superpolished tannins. Made for aging. A more refined, new style of Guado. Best after 2012." (10/08) 91 points Wine Advocate: "Antinori’s 2006 Guado al Tasso is a dark, sensual beauty imbued with the essence of black pepper, earthiness and dark fruit. Today the wine remains quite fresh and in need of further bottle age. As outstanding as the Guado al Tasso is, it doesn’t quite have the level of fleshiness and depth that is found in so many wines from Bolgheri in 2006. Guado al Tasso is 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 5% Syrah. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2022. From top to bottom this is a beautiful set of wines from Antinori." (08/09)
