Solaia IGT Marchese Antinori Marchese Antinori Cabernet Franc Cabernet Sauvignon Sangiovese Rood 2004
Extraordinary intense ruby red in color. Intensely fruity, more of cherry than cassis, with hints of toast, coffee and dark chocolate. Finely structured and complex; balanced, with soft tannins and a lingering finish. Displays unmistakable varietal flavor while retaining strong regional character. Guado al Tasso, meaning literally "Badger's Ford," takes its name from a common sight at the estate of Tenuta Guado al Tasso, Bolgheri, where it is produced. The vineyard is at an elevation between 44 and 58 meters (145 and 190 feet) above sea-level on stony, slightly calcareous soils. Tenuta Guado al Tasso is located 60 miles southwest of Florence, near the medieval village of Bolgheri, in an area known as the Maremma. The 900 hectares (2,223 acres) estate stretches up from the shore of the Tyrrhenian Sea to the hills, and aside from extensive vineyards, also grows wheat, corn, sunflowers, tomatoes and olive trees. Guado al Tasso was first produced in 1990. All the vintages have been produced in limited quantities. 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 10% Syrah and other red grape varieties.

Had this wine at Seattle's Barolo restaurant. Incredible wine - especially with the delicious steak we had. The wine is smooth with dark chocolate hints, yet it's spicy featuring lively pepper flavors that really complemented the meal.
One of the finest Super Tuscans I've had. A smooth, full-bodied wine with intense fruit and complex undertones. A phenomenal complement to a delicious steak dinner.
