Tasting Notes:

Bolgheri is the source for some of Italy's greatest proprietary red wine blends of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. No other region in the world (other than Pomerol and St.-Emilion) has produced such great Merlots. The 1998 Guado Al Tasso (a 60% Cabernet Sauvignon/30% Merlot/10% Syrah blend) was fashioned from extremely small yields of 30 hectoliters per hectare, spent 14 months in 100% new French oak, and was bottled with minimal clarification. Malolactic was also done in barrel, so the wood is nicely assimilated. The dense ruby/purple-colored 1998 offers a glorious perfume of coffee, chocolate, blackberries, cassis, and vanillin. Dense, rich, supple-textured, and fruity as well as elegant, it will drink well for 10-12 years.

Tasting Notes:

Fruity and spicy with meat and dried herbs. Full and round with velvety tannins. Warm and decadent. Love it now.

description Producer information Professional reviews

The Antinori family has dedicated itself to wine production for more than six hundred years: since, in 1385, Giovanni di Piero Antinori became part of the Arte Fiorentina dei Vinattieri. Throughout its long history, through 26 generations, the family has always directly managed this activity with innovative and sometimes courageous choices, but always maintaining the respect for the traditions and the territory.Today the company is chaired by Albiera Antinori, with the support of the two sisters Allegra and Alessia, personally involved in the company activities. The Marquis Piero Antinori is currently the Honorary President of the company. Tradition, passion and intuition were the driving qualities that led the Marquises Antinori to establish itself as one of the leading Italian wine producers.
