Antinori Guado al Tasso 2008, 750ml (JS95, WA95, WS93) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Antinori Guado al Tasso

750ml

Vintage: 2008
Region: Italy
Appellation: Bolgheri

JS95, WA95, WS93
Rated 95 points by Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `The 2008 Guado al Tasso is once again fabulous. In fact, it may be Tuscany`s most improved wine over the last few years. Firm, vibrant tannins support expressive layers of dark fruit, plums, cherries, sage, espresso and mocha. The wine shows fabulous detail and nuance in a translucent, totally seductive style, with tons of focus, drive and verve. It is a striking wine that will be a joy to follow over the coming years. The 2008 Guado al Tasso is composed of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2028.` -- Antonio Galloni in the Wine Advocate.Additional Notes from the Wine Advocate: `Antinori seems to do everything well these days, from churning out millions of bottles of supermarket wines all the way to turning out superb versions of their many flagship bottlings. This is another impressive set of new releases with a number of highlights. Over the years oenologist Renzo Cotarella has moved away from the super-late harvests of the late 1990s/early 2000s in favor of picking slightly earlier, a decision that has paid off handsomely, especially over the last few years. Antinori`s 2008s, from a vintage that is quite inconsistent across the board, are superb. I remember spending a few days near the estate`s Tignanello and Badia a Passignano estates in mid-August 2008. The days were very hot, but the nights were so cool that a sweater or light jacket was a necessity`
