Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
Aromatic, silky and spicy, this Guado al Tasso complements its ultra rich blue and black fruit with fresh-cut herbs, espresso, dark chocolate and a touch of licorice and earth. The palate almost shimmers with energy as it builds to a powerful finish, leaving a trail of fine-grained tannins in its wake. Sunny, dry, and warm, the growing year of 2012 made for a very genial yet superbly balanced Guado al Tasso. A blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 18% Cabernet Franc, and 2% Petit Verdot, the 2012 Guado al Tasso is a thoughtful mix where each constituent grape adds something, but there’s no question that the whole is bigger than the sum of its parts. Antinori ferments each parcel separately, blending the mix after a year of aging; after blending, the wine ages for six months in barriques before bottling. The child of a warm vintage, this ’12 is approachable early, but it will also develop beautifully in the cellar.
