Heiner Lobenberg über:
Guado al Tasso Bolgheri Superiore 2018


Lobenberg: Guado al Tasso ist Antinoris samtigster Wein. Ein Blend aus Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot und Cabernet Franc, der über 14 Monate in neuen französischen Barriques ausgebaut wurde. Seine Finesse erreicht der Wein auch, weil er vor Freigabe fast ein weiteres Jahr in der Flasche reift. Eine Art Sassicaia mit leicht animalischem Biss, ein Hauch Kalifornien und Pauillac als Assoziation. Einfach ein perfekter und kompromissloser Botschafter der DOC Bolgheri Superiore. 98/100


Parker über: Guado al Tasso Bolgheri Superiore

-- Parker: Renzo Cotarella, managing director of Marchesi Antinori tells me that the 2018 vintage showed very different results in the inland and hilly Chianti Classico appellation compared to the flat, sea-facing Bolgheri appellation. This season saw some rain right before harvest. That extra humidity rolled right off the Chianti Classico hills and disappeared without effect, but it stuck around longer in the thicker, flatter soils of Guado al Tasso. For this reason, one of the estate's top wines, the Cabernet Franc-based Matarocchio, was not produced in 2018 for fear that the fruit would not offer the concentration required of a wine of that important stature. The best of that fruit was used in this wine instead. For that reason, the 2018 Bolgheri Superiore Guado al Tasso sees a little more Cabernet Franc (clocking in at about 22% of the blend) and less Merlot, with the rest being Cabernet Sauvignon, of course, (at about 60%). 96/100


Suckling über: Guado al Tasso Bolgheri Superiore

-- Suckling: Lots of redcurrants and flowers on the nose, together with crushed stones. Full-bodied and very layered with beautiful fruit and density, yet it remains agile and light. The tannins are totally integrated. I like the light herbal touch to the red fruit here. Flower petals. Juicy, flavorful finish with citrus zest at the end. 60% Cabernet sauvignon, 22% cabernet franc and 18% merlot. Really pretty now, but wait two or three years. 96/100


Decanter über: Guado al Tasso Bolgheri Superiore

-- Decanter: Guado al Tasso 2018 makes waves. Its nose has a leafy, almost herbal character and is quite different from the past vintages where the fruit was riper. The integration of this leafiness with restrained cassis is outstanding, the palate is silky and the tannins precise and creamy, with brilliant refreshing acidity. On the finish graphite minerality is elongated by the slightly bitter character of the wine. It represents faithfully the vintage and carries great complexity. 96/100


Galloni über: Guado al Tasso Bolgheri Superiore

-- Galloni: The 2018 Guado al Tasso is silky, delicate and exceptionally polished. I can’t remember tasting another Guado like it. Medium in body and gracious, the 2018 offers up a compelling mélange of dark fruit, chocolate, cedar, licorice and dried herbs, all in a mid-weight style that is incredibly appealing. The 2018 has just been bottled, so it needs time to bounce back. I can’t wait to taste it with a bit more time in bottle. 95+/100


Falstaff über: Guado al Tasso Bolgheri Superiore

-- Falstaff: Funkelndes, sattes Rubin-Violett. Eröffnet mit Noten nach Tabak, dann reife Zwetschken, viel Holunderbeere, im Hintergrund etwas Lakritze. Am Gaumen stoffig und präsent, eröffnet mit satter Beerenfrucht, dichtmaschiges Tannin, saftig und im Finale satter Druck. 95/100
