    "Guado al Tasso" Bolgheri Superiore DOC 2018

    Elegant and complex: Guado al Tasso with a warmly toned bouquet and a fullness of fruit that is just as convincing as the harmonious structure. Deep dark, rich ruby-violet. Very clear and intense nose, smelling of blackberries, cassis and dark cherries, underpinned by fine, spicy notes with hints of white pepper and cardamom. Very juicy in attack and course, shows a lot of sweet melting, interwoven, tightly meshed tannin, supple and elegant, very long finish. An excellent wine that offers the highest drinking pleasure.

    "Sparkling, rich ruby-violet. Opens with notes of tobacco, then ripe plums, lots of elderberry, some liquorice in the background. Full-bodied and present on the palate, opens with rich berry fruit, dense tannin, juicy and rich pressure on the final." Falstaff

    "Rich, intense fruit flavors of black currant and black cherry are shaded by vanilla, toasty oak, iron, black olive and tobacco accents in this complex, harmonious red. Fine balance and a lingering finish cap it off." Wine Spectator

    "The 2018 Guado al Tasso is silky, delicate and exceptionally polished. I can't remember tasting another Guado like it. Medium in body and gracious, the 2018 offers up a compelling mélange of dark fruit, chocolate, cedar, licorice and dried herbs, all in a mid-weight style that is incredibly appealing. The 2018 has just been bottled, so it needs time to bounce back. I can't wait to taste it with a bit more time in bottle." Vinous

    "Lots of redcurrants and flowers on the nose, together with crushed stones. Full-bodied and very layered with beautiful fruit and density, yet it remains agile and light. The tannins are totally integrated. I like the light herbal touch to the red fruit here. Flower petals. Juicy, flavorful finish with citrus zest at the end." James Suckling

    "Aromas of dark fruit and freshly milled white pepper replace the more banal cherry-based flavors delivered by the Merlot, and the wine appears more lifted and precise as a result. The Cabernet Sauvignon delivers spice and licorice, and these pretty aromas are likewise given more breathing room, thanks to the counterparts found in the Cabernet Franc. Linearity, sharpness, pencil shavings and dark currant or blackberry-this is the direction Guado al Tasso is taking, and this 2018 vintage opens the door to a new chapter for the wine." Robert Parker

    "Guado al Tasso 2018 makes waves. Its nose has a leafy, almost herbal character and is quite different from the past vintages where the fruit was riper. The integration of this leafiness with restrained cassis is outstanding, the palate is silky and the tannins precise and creamy, with brilliant refreshing acidity. On the finish graphite minerality is elongated by the slightly bitter character of the wine. It represents faithfully the vintage and carries great complexity." Decanter
