About Guado Al Tasso 2015 Bolgheri Superiore, Antinori

The wines of the Antinori family are nothing less that remarkable. This incredible Super Tuscan is the flagship wine of their Bolgheri Estate, Tenuta Guado Al Tasso. This 2015 is a blend of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot, 18% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot. A tremendous vintage, this 2015 is receiving huge accolades all around.

Antonio Galloni scored it 96 points saying "Even at this very early stage, the 2015 Bolgheri Superiore Guado al Tasso is magnificent. Fresh and perfumed in the glass, with striking purity of fruit and exceptional balance, the 2015 is arrestingly beautiful from the very first taste. Bright red cherry and raspberry jam are pushed forward. I am struck by the wine's translucent color and overall level of finesse. Wow!"

James Suckling scored it 97 saying "So much blue fruit such as blueberries and blackberries; the purity of the fruit is incredible. Essence of cabernet sauvignon. Full-bodied yet with focused and fine tannins. Forceful but focused and polished. Needs two or three years to come around. And then enjoy for years afterwards."

and The Wine Advocate scored it 97 saying "The 2015 Bolgheri Superiore Guado Al Tasso is another star performer from a vintage that was tailor-made by some higher being specifically for the blended red wines of Tuscany. This mix of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 18% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot slides seamlessly right in there with our highest expectations of the iconic vintage. The wine offers beautiful intensity and purity, yet it also delivers balanced power and lasting persistence. This is a baritone expression from Bolgheri on the Tuscan coast with impenetrable black fruit, chocolate and tobacco followed by rich concentration and tightly knit texture. I tasted this wine next to a barrel sample of the unfinished 2016 vintage. This vintage appears more exuberant and opulent at this early stage."
