Guado Al Tasso 2014

There are 23 units available online.
Product description

The Guado al Tasso Estate is located in the prestigious Bolgheri DOC, part of the Tuscan coastal area of Maremma, known for its untamed landscape and unspoiled beauty. Just 60 miles southwest of Florence, it sits on a magnificent plain in the heart of the Bolgheri amphitheatre, a natural phenomenon created by hills that embrace the sea and produce a mild and temperate microclimate. 

Blessed with ample sunshine and constant breezes that take the edge off the summer heat and winter cold, Guado al Tasso is the ideal environment for cultivating healthy vine growth and proper ripening of the estate's grapes.

The Guado al Tasso is a wine with a crisp, savoury finish and a balanced and complex fragrance. The nose shows notes of cherries under spirits, tobacco, candied oranges, and spices. The palate is vibrant, supple, and persistent, with a spicy finish and aftertaste. In this vintage, it was decided to use a more significant percentage of Merlot and to eliminate the Petit Verdot, giving a final wine which differs from previous years.

93 Points - James Suckling

The aromas of crushed berry rose, and violet is very attractive. Medium to full body, firm and silky tannins and a savoury finish. Delicate finish.

93+ Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2014 Bolgheri Superiore Guado Al Tasso offers more excellent surprises from this underdog vintage. Its deep, velvety colour stands out first. This is an immensely soft and smooth red blend from the Bolgheri area on the Tuscan Coast. The wine opens to dark fruit aromas with background notes of spice, sweet tobacco and dark cacao. The tannins are refined and smooth with succulent end notes of ripe fruit and blackberry. The wine's texture is thicker and more elaborate than you might initially suspect.
