Compared to Sassicaia or Ornellaia, recent vintages of Guado Al Tasso represent considerable value for...

Blend of 60% Cab Sauv, 25% Merlot, 12% Cab Franc and 3% Petit Verdot. Medium-high intensity aromas of dark fruits, purple fruits, blackberries, lavender and mocha. Full-bodied and dense with big tannins that are integrated very nicely. Harmonious aromas show very nicely on the palate, along with some plummy + herbal notes. Mouth-watering acidity to go along with a long, long finish. Enjoyable now, but can be aged for another 15 years. Beautiful! Tasted Nov/2013.
