About Guado Al Tasso 2012 Bolgheri Superiore, Antinori
The wines of the Antinori family are nothing less that remarkable. This incredible Super Tuscan comes from their Bolgheri Estate of Tenuta Guado Al Tasso. This 2011 is a blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc. 90+ scores all around the Wine Advocate scored it 95 points saying "The 2012 Bolgheri Superiore Guado Al Tasso is a wine to fall in love with at first sight. This blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot offers enormous fullness and generosity that accompanies all the senses. The effect is seamless with thick extraction and richness that is contrasted against the tonic freshness of the fruit. The wine is creamy, soft and enduring. You can count on this vintage to age ten years or more." and James Suckling scored it 96 points saying "Poised and focused, this is a young red that shows great complexity and style with lots of blackberry, mint, spice and rosemary aromas that follow through to a full body, chewy tannins and a long and flavorful finish. Needs two to four years to soften. Rivals Antinori's Solaia in 2012. Try in 2017."
