2007 guado al tasso, bolgheri
Why We're Buying
Guado Al Tasso represents an authentic representation of Bolgheri terroir. The wine contains a blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot, cabernet franc, and trace amounts of the petit verdot. Today, it's an essential part of an Italian wine investment portfolio.
What a powerful nose. Fresh herbs, currants, cassis, minerals, orange peel, pepper, and a rosemary character. A full bodied wine with minerals, dried herbs, currants, and hints of lightly toasted oak. This is very precise, powerful, and gorgeous. Immense complexity with a very, very long finish. Fabulous and balanced right now but could still use more bottle age. This may turn out to be the best release yet. Don't touch this until 2015.
