Guado al Tasso DOC Bolgheri, 2006

Tasted 21/10/2010. Antinori 'Super Tuscan' from a great vintage, about £70 to £75, various merchants, e.g. Harrods, Philglas. This is one of the 'cheaper' Antinori Super Tuscans and probably represents the best balance between quality and price. Deep ruby colour, dark, concentrated nose of berry fruits and figs, nice oak, promising; Great length and Morello cherries on the finish. Tannic – needs a little longer – but lovely now. Not too oaky. Elegant and powerful but without being overpowering. Worth the money. 19/20
