Tenuta Guado Al Tasso Antinori Red Blend Bolgheri Superiore 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

" # 1 Wine Enthusiast Cellar Selections 2012...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...98" WE 2/12 "So pure and beautiful with amazing currants, crushed berries, and dried fruits on the nose. Full bodied and silky with refined tannins and a long beautiful finish. This is cool and refined. I can't wait to see how this develops. Should be ready after 2016. Find the wine...94." www.jamesuckling.com 4/11

The Antinori family has been making wine for over six hundred years, since Giovanni di Piero Antinori became part of the Arte Fiorentina dei Vinattieri in 1385. Throughout its long history, spanning 26 generations, the family has always personally managed the business making innovative, sometimes courageous choices, always with unwavering respect for tradition and the land. Today Marchese Piero Antinori is director of the company, assisted by his three daughters, Albiera, Allegra and Alessia, who are personally involved in the business. The qualities of tradition, passion and instinct have made Antinori one of the leading Italian producers of fine quality wines. Every vintage, every terroir, every idea is a new beginning, a new quest to raise our quality margins. As Marchese Piero loves to repeat: “ancient roots play an important role in our philosophy, but they have never held back our spirit of innovation”. As well as the family's traditional heritage of estates in Tuscany and Umbria, investments have been made over time in other areas highly suited to quality wine production, in Italy and abroad, in a quest to promote new terroirs, rich in winegrowing potential. Antinori continually experiment with their vineyards and cellars, with selections of native and international clones, growing methods, vineyard altitudes, fermentation methods and temperatures, traditional and modern vinification techniques, types of wood, size and age of barrels, and various bottle-ageing periods. Piero Antinori says: “We have shown over the years that it is possible to produce internationally-acclaimed fine stylish, elegant wines in Tuscany and Umbria while maintaining their original character”. Looking to the future, Antinori explains: “There are many books in our library but they are never enough for us. Our mission is not yet complete: we are driven to express the vast potential of our vineyards and reconcile all that is new and undiscovered with Tuscany's traditional, cultural, agricultural, artistic and literary heritage. These things represent the identity of Antinori, and one of our greatest strengths is that we are in Tuscany – our essential ‘Tuscan-ness', if you will”. Read less

This is perhaps my favorite wine in the whole world. Since spending a very nice vacation at this Winery, in Italy. I've come real attached to it. It has always been at the top of my list. Its truly delicious and smooth/ crisp on the buds. My friends ask for it at dinner parties quite frequently. Especially the Ladies.

This is a wonderful light crisp summer wine. Even red lovers like this wine, it is so fresh and mellow.

Strohgelb mit grünlichen Reflexen. Intensiver Duft mit blumiger, fruchtiger Note. Trocken, aber doch mit einer gewissen Frische. Körper mit einer guten Struktur, ausgeglichen mit einer beträchtlichen Milde. Die Aussagekraft und Qualität verleiht diesem Wein eine Einzigartigkeit.

The production of Vin Santo in Tuscany goes back at least until the Middle Ages: it is considered a true regional specialty and the Antinori family has always produced it as well. The first vintage of the Vin Santo Tenute Marchese Antinori, however, an entirely natural product, dates from 1987.
