The blend is Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, which results in a generous, striking and unforgettable product. The bouquet is elegant and toned, with aromas of dark fruit, tobacco and chocolate. The mouthfeel is tight and firm, and it boasts persistence and impressive balance. It has all of the qualities required for long-term aging, so keep this for 10 years or more.

Best Guado al Tasso ever. Wonderful nose of crushed blackberries and cherries with hints of dark chocolate. Full-bodied with soft and round tannins and a long long finish. It goes on for minutes.

It goes on for minutes. Now just a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Better after 2015.

The 2009 Bolgheri Superiore Guado al Tasso impresses for its richness and sheer power. Mocha sweet spices plums blackberries and herbs wrap around the palate as this intense wine shows off its pedigree. Layers of flavor build to the deep intensely satisfying finish. The 2009 is complete and harmonious from the very first taste. In 2009 the blend is 60% Cabernet Sauvignon 25% Merlot 12% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2029. - Antonio Galloni

Bright medium ruby. Complex aromatic nose of blackberry, mocha, nutmeg, clove and tar lifted by a violet note. Lush, dense and seamless, with impressive volume nicely leavened by adequate acidity, which gives this big boy... Bright medium ruby. Complex aromatic nose of blackberry, mocha, nutmeg, clove and tar lifted by a violet note. Lush, dense and seamless, with impressive volume nicely leavened by adequate acidity, which gives this big boy an element of finesse. Finishes powerful and very long, with a lingering chocolatey nuance and tannins that are quite suave and fine.

Selected from Antinori’s 750-acre vineyard in Bolgheri, this is a blend of cabernet sauvignon (60 percent) with merlot, cabernet franc and petit verdot. The complete ripeness of the cabernet makes this comfortable and comforting, Tuscan-modern in its clean lines. Spicy tannins edge the fruit in sweet warmth, while the wine feels balanced, sleek and easy to cuddle up to, especially with prime rib.

Though concentrated, this is lively and structured, showing integration of all the elements. The cherry, cedar and black currant notes, accented by hints of vanilla, carry the melody, while the tannins provide rhythm...
