The nose of 2009 Guado al Tasso starts at the beginning with discrete balsamic sensations followed by aromas of ripe fruits and spices. The palate has this velvet sensation supported by soft tannins and finesse. The finish is very well structured by savoury mineral notes and a beautiful persistence.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2009 Bolgheri Superiore Guado al Tasso impresses for its richness and sheer power. Mocha, sweet spices, plums, blackberries and herbs wrap around the palate as this intense wine shows off its pedigree. Layers of flavor build to the deep, intensely satisfying finish. The 2009 is complete and harmonious from the very first taste. In 2009 the blend is 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2029.
