TASTING NOTES

"This is racy and refined red shows 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. 6,660 cases made." Wine Spectator

"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. The estate's 2006 Guado al Tasso, Tignanello and Solaia are all beautiful, even if they don't appear to possess the elegance of the superb 2004s." Antonio Galloni, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #184
