Antinori Guado al Tasso Bolgheri Superiore 2018
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Bolgheri|
he 2018 Guado al Tasso is silky, delicate and exceptionally polished. I can't remember tasting another Guado like it. Medium in body and gracious, the 2018 offers up a compelling mélange of dark fruit, chocolate, cedar, licorice and dried herbs, all in a mid-weight style that is incredibly appealing. The 2018 has just been bottled, so it needs time to bounce back. I can't wait to taste it with a bit more time in bottle.
Rich, intense fruit flavors of black currant and black cherry are shaded by vanilla, toasty oak, iron, black olive and tobacco accents in this complex, harmonious red. Fine balance and a lingering finish cap it off. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2023 through 2035. 2,000 cases imported.
