The wines of the Antinori family are nothing less that remarkable. This incredible Super Tuscan comes from their Bolgheri Estate of Tenuta Guado Al Tasso. A blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot aged 18 months in French oak barrels. This is a monumental vintage for this Super Tuscan, don't miss it!

"Here's a wow wine on every level, with incredible intensity and supple softness that builds momentum over many long minutes. A sweet cherry note at the core is surrounded by lush layers of tobacco, dark chocolate and spice, which promise to evolve gracefully over years to come."

"The 2008 Guado al Tasso is once again fabulous. In fact, it may be Tuscany’s most improved wine over the last few years. Firm, vibrant tannins support expressive layers of dark fruit, plums, cherries, sage, espresso and mocha. The wine shows fabulous detail and nuance in a translucent, totally seductive style, with tons of focus, drive and verve. It is a striking wine that will be a joy to follow over the coming years. The 2008 Guado al Tasso is composed of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc"
