One of Tuscany's finest Bordeaux-style blends, the Guado al Tasso is superb. From one of the most important estates of the famous Antinori family, Guado al Tasso, is located in the warm Bolgheri Amphitheatre, where Cabernet thrives to produce some the most expensive wines in the world. With potential to age vary well, the Antinori is a choice for quality with prestige.

Its Origins

Giovanni di Piero Antinori joined the Florentine Guild of Vintners in 1385, beginning an oenological legacy that has lasted over 26 generations. Throughout the company's history, it has remained family-owned and operated. Today, Marchese Piero Antinori directs the long-lived family vision, and his three daughters participate in various activities with the firm. Famed wine consultant Giacomo Tachis began his celebrated tenure with Antinori in 1961, a year that witnessed the inception of new vinification techniques (controlled temperatures, aging in bottle, and barrels comprising a range of types and styles) and the beginning of a revisionist period in the concept of Chianti. The most tangible and compelling evocation of these progressive efforts, of course, is captured in Antinori’s extensive portfolio, which features some of Italy’s most revered and sought-after bottlings, including the second official Super-Tuscan (after Sassicaia), the Sangiovese-based Tignanello.

What The Critics Say

96/100 Vinous, Antonio Galloni

"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!" Drink 2020 - 2035

97/100 Robert Parkers Wine Advocate

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.
