Beautiful center palate of fruit here with ripe and silky tannins that are resolved and fine-grained. Full-bodied, polished and ever so refined. Oyster shell, stone and hints of rosemary and lavender. Driven finish. Better after 2022.
James Suckling
This stunning vintage of this landmark wine marks a slight adjustment to the blend. The 2016 Bolgheri Superiore Guado Al Tasso is no longer made with Petit Verdot. The blend is now 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and now 20% Cabernet Franc. This small change does not go unnoticed, as this wine is absolutely seamless now—like the finest Asian silk fabric. That profound textural softness and suppleness changes the way the wine smells and tastes, with hints of momentary sweetness that are more tactile than anything else. Generally speaking, the 2016 vintage offers more elegance (slightly less concentration) and a hair more freshness compared to the 2015 edition. When I tasted this wine, the bouquet was still timid, but it will no doubt become more expressive and open as this beautiful wine continues forward along its aging trajectory. Some 120,000 bottles were made, a remarkable feat considering the extreme quality on offer.

Antinori - Tenuta Guado al Tasso

Antinori - Tenuta Guado al Tasso

Situated on the biodiverse, untouched coast of Tuscany, Guado al Tasso is one of the stars of the Bolgheri DOC. Stretching over four kilometers along the Tyrrhenian Sea, the cantina lies in Maremma just one-hour south of the famed village of Pisa. This estate is just one of the many top-producing Tuscan estates owned by the illustrious Antinori family, however this beautiful property is also their private summer retreat. Encompassing over 600 hectares of land, the property is split between vineyards and the unique contrast between beaches and wooded areas – which shows off their native fauna and flora. The tenuta crafts a couple wonderful whites, a rosé, and several five-star reds. Guado al Tasso is leaning toward a much more Bordeaux-like style regarding their reds, using slightly larger barriques and less new-oak. The flagship of this estate, Guado al Tasso expresses powerful characteristics of the upper Maremma balanced by overall elegance and finesse. The second wine, Il Bruciato shares the same philosophy of excellence, preforming as an approachable, slightly spicy wine with a long pleasurable fruit finish. ...
Bolgheri

Bolgheri

Bolgheri might be considered one of Italy’s newest wine regions. Located on Tuscany’s western coast due south of Livorno and in the region of Maremma, it is most famous due to its incredible list of Italian Super Tuscans, though it is its original wine estate, Tenuta San Guido, producer of Sassicaia, that brought further investment and fame to the region. Following on their success came the Antinoris with Tenuta dell’Ornellaia, Guado al Tasso as well as Tenuta di Biserno, as well as a number of excellent producers such as the Gajas and their estate Ca’ Marcanda, Castello di Bolgheri and Orma. Unlike most other Tuscan regions, its main grape variety is not Sangiovese but rather French varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Syrah due to its unique micro-climate and soil. As a result, Bolgheri can rival some of Bordeaux’s and France’s greatest bottlings. ...
