Guado al Tasso Bolgheri Superiore 2016 3L

Upon its release, the 2016 Guado al Tasso was called “breathtaking,” “stunning,” and “classic.” Now that the wine is... beginning to enter its drinking window, we can see its greatness. Crisp red berries and luscious black fruits layer with graphite, Mediterranean scrub, cedar wood, baking spices, and licorice in this powerful, refined, and polished Super Tuscan. Fine-grained tannins and intense, delineated dry extract provide ethereal weight as singing acidity, balsamic bass notes, and oyster shell minerality power the extended finish. Guado al Tasso dropped its Petit Verdot component with the 2016 bottling, making it a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, and 20% Cabernet Franc.
