Antinori Tenuta Guado Al Tasso Bolgheri Superiore 2017
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Bolgheri|
Impressive, featuring concentrated black currant and blackberry flavors, shaded by iron, black pepper, bell pepper and oak spice notes. The tannins show the assertive character of the vintage, overshadowing the fruit on the finish for now. Vibrant and long. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah. Best from 2022 through 2033.
The 2017 Bolgheri Superiore Guado al Tasso is layered with red cherry, plum, licorice and dried flower notes. There is plenty of energy and tension. It will be interesting to see if the tannins soften a bit. Today, the 2017 is a bit assertive, but that may soften in time. We will see.
