Guado al Tasso Superiore is a classic Medoc grape blend (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and a little Petit Verdot) from the Antinori stable and is an excellently made wine. 100% new oak is used in every vintage. The warm 2015 summer produced very ripe fruit, and this is perhaps the most opulent of the Bolgheri wines in this vintage, which drew a correspondingly high 97 points from Mr Parker. We would expect this wine to improve over the next 10-20 years
Marchesi Antinori vies with Tenuta San Guido as the leaders of the Super Tuscan revolution but the driving force differs between the two. Originally Antinori began to add Bordeaux grapes to soften Sangiovese, whereas San Guido were consciously trying to make a claret in Italy. Both approaches have been very successful.
The Antinori family now own a world-wide business empire incorporating wineries, restaurants and bars in Chile, California and Monte Carlo but the heart of the business is still in Tuscany and the diffusion of the business does not seem to have adversely affected the fundamental quality of the primary product: the wines.
