Winemaker's Notes

50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, 10% Syrah.

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 metres (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; the successive vintages are 1992, 1993, 1994, 1995, 1996 and 1997. All the vintages have been produced in limited quantities.

Ruby red in color. Fruity, 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.

Critical Acclaim

"Intense aromas of black pepper, spices and ripe fruit. Slightly raisiny, but complex. Full-bodied, silky and rich. Stylish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah and others. Best after 2010. 6,665 cases made. "
92 Points

"Luscious, modern and concentrated, this wine delivers chocolate, exotic spice, succulent cherry, currant berry and lively buoyancy. It also has some notes that recall rubber or latex, but those don't distract. On the heels of that are thicker, more enticing notes of campfire, toasts and cedar that taste so good over the wine’s toned, well-built structure. "
92 Points

"The 2004 Guado al Tasso reveals a layered, nuanced texture filled out by the generous warmth of Bolgheri. Full-bodied and ample on the palate, it offers plenty of sweet dark fruit, licorice, Tuscan herbs and chocolate, with outstanding persistence as well as balance, which is especially evident in a mature use of oak. The 2004 is an opulent and beautifully poised Guado al Tasso that will offer much pleasure over the next decade. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2019. "
