Tenuta Guado Al Tasso 2001 Bolgheri Superiore
Origin: Bolgheri, Tuscany, Italy
Blend: cabernet (60%), merlot (30%), syrah (10%)
This wine is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 10% Syrah. The resulting wine is rich in colour and very structured but soft on the palate without any astringency. It is an extraordinarily intense ruby red in colour. It is fruity, more of cherry than cassis, with hints of toast, coffee and dark chocolate. Finely structured, complex and balanced with soft tannins and a lingering finish. It displays unmistakable varietal flavor while retaining strong regional character.
