Tenuta Guado al Tasso 2013

Tenuta Guado al Tasso 2013

Availability: Out of stock


"Antinori's 2013 Bolgheri Superiore Guado al Tasso is ripe, voluptuous and racy, with striking aromatics that sit on top of a core of voluptuous, racy fruit. A classic Bolgheri wine, Guado al Tasso offers plenty of rich, sumptuous fruit and textural resonance. A good dose of new French oak (from a move towards Taransaud and François Frères barrels) adds raciness and toasty notes, but those characteristics marry nicely with the expression of fruit that is so typical of the Tuscan coast. Rose petal, lavender and new leather add striking aromatic lift as the wine opens up in the glass. The 2013 is a terrific Guado al Tasso.  Drinking window: 2018-2028. 95 points.

Two thousand fourteen was an extremely difficult vintage at Antinori's Guado al Tasso. Antinori did not bottle their pure Merlot Cont'Ugo or the 100% Cabernet Franc Matarocchio, while production of the flagship Guado al Tasso is down by a whopping two-thirds. The highlight in this range is the 2013 Guado al Tasso, a wine that exemplifies the exuberance and voluptuousness that makes Bolgheri reds so seductive."

Antonio Galloni, Vinous (11/16)
