Scalabrone. Tenuta Guado Al Tasso 2016

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Fairly floral on the nose with tarry notes of saffron accenting dark, almost plummy fruit that shows some basil stem and tomato leaf aromas. Translucent on the palate with wonderful framing acidity and nice layered flavors of tart plum, red currant and wild strawberry. These drive across the fairly long finish, joined by decisive quartzy mineral notes and a faint undertone of almost bitter apple skins. This is really lovely with near perfect texture. 91pts

Strawberries, sweet but not too sweet. Notes of juicy plums and apples.

Clean, clear, and mild-mannered rose with a beautiful light ruby color, darker than a typical rose. Aroma of strawberry, watermelon, pepper and spice, and cooling metal. Medium acid on the attack with mild citrus underlying strawberry and watermelon. Light body. Recommend it cold for the summer patio.

This is really a fantastic rose. Well balanced, great fruit on the nose. Well made.

Some oak on the nose with dark fruits. Perhaps needs a tad more time to better integrate for me, but all in all, a lovely wine.

On the nose the wine shows elegant notes of toasted oak, coffee, and spices followed by aromas of plums and black currants. On the palate, the initial impact is soft but firm with a vein of acidity which gives greater freshness and crispness than usual.

Firm, Vibrant tannins support expressive layers of dark fruit, plums, cherries, sage, espresso, and mocha.

The wines of the Antinori family are nothing less that remarkable. This incredible Super Tuscan comes from their Bolgheri Estate of Tenuta Guado Al Tasso. Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored it 98 points saying "Here�s a �wow� wine on every level, with incredible intensity and supple softness that builds momentum over many long minutes. A sweet cherry note at the core is surrounded by lush layers of tobacco, dark chocolate and spice, which promise to evolve gracefully over years to come."

Number Two on the Top 100 Cellar Selections for 2010! The wines of the Antinori family are nothing less that remarkable. This incredible Super Tuscan comes from their Bolgheri Estate of Tenuta Guado Al Tasso. A blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 5% Syrah aged for 18 months in French oak barrels. Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored it 97 points saying "Guado al Tasso is finally back. After a string of past vintages that exhibited some rubber-like aromas, the 2006 expression is a study in purity, focus and excellence. This wine is impressive on all levels in terms of intensity, personality and persistency. It’s rich and luscious with smooth tannins and lasting flavors of blackberry and spice. Drink after 2015." Extremely Limited!!
