The nose is very refined and elegant, with fragrant, sweet aromas. The aromas are well integrated, with harmony between the fruity and balsamic notes. The palate is consistent and elegant, from the attack, through the mid-palate to the finish. The aftertaste matches the characteristics of the aromas giving a long, pleasant finish. These are the characteristics of Guado al Tasso 2006 as it is released onto the market - a wine with great class and a high potential for ageing in bottle.
"Guado al Tasso is finally back.... the 2006 expression is a study in purity, focus and excellence. This wine is impressive on all levels in terms of intensity, personality, and persistence. It's rich and luscious with smooth tannins and lasting flavors of blackberry and spice. Drink after 2015."
"This racy and refined red shows intense aromas of blackberry, currant and dried flowers that follow through to a full body, with sleek, minerally undertones
and superpolished tannins. Made for aging. A more refined, new style of Guado. To be released early 2009. Best after 2012."
"This is very floral and pretty on the nose with violets, licorice, berries, currants, and a hint of coffee. Full bodied, soft and round with a gorgeous long finish. Incredible class and depth with a long finish. Precision. Get started on this one tonight. "
