GUADO AL TASSO 2011 ANTINORI

WINE ADVOCATE 95 POINTS - "Forever the superstar, the 2011 Bolgheri Superiore Guado al Tasso is a delicious wine that never holds back in terms of intensity and seamless integration. Every detail has been finessed. The blend is 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot. Each vineyard parcel is fermented separately to maintain varietal identity. The wine’s appearance is dark and luscious with thick extraction and a vibrant dark garnet hue. Generous aromas of dark fruit, tobacco and chocolate lift steadily from the glass. The mouthfeel is soft and yielding with a great sense of tannic persistency that holds up the finish, which can be counted in many long minutes. Give this wine five years or more to fully evolve."

JAMES SUCKLING 95 POINTS "A dense, layered red with asphalt, berry and clove character. Figs too. Full body, chewy tannins and a juicy finish. Needs time to soften. Better in 2017."

WINE & SPIRITS 95 POINTS - "The 2011 Guado al Tasso is remarkably approachable for such a structured wine. Powerful yet refined tannins weave through flavors of blackberry, plum, black pepper, fennel and tobacco, providing structure without impeding flavor. The wine aged for 18 months in French oak barrels, including six months after blending. Silky and juicy, the flavors unfold in overlapping layers, spiraling upward with impressive energy and drive. Still fresh on the third day of tasting, this has a long life ahead even as it offers immense pleasure now."
