Winemaker Notes

50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, 10% Syrah.

Guado al Tasso, meaning literally "Badger's Ford", takes its name from a common sight at the estate of Tenuta Guado al Tasso, Bolgheri, where it is produced.

Critical Acclaim

WE 92
Wine Enthusiast

Luscious, modern and concentrated, this wine delivers chocolate, exotic spice, succulent cherry, currant berry and lively buoyancy. It also has some notes that recall rubber or latex, but those don't distract. On the heels of that are thicker, more enticing notes of campfire, toasts and cedar that taste so good over the wine’s toned, well-built structure.

Vinous / Antonio Galloni

The 2004 Guado al Tasso reveals a layered, nuanced texture filled out by the generous warmth of Bolgheri. Full-bodied and ample on the palate, it offers plenty of sweet dark fruit, licorice, Tuscan herbs and chocolate, with outstanding persistence as well as balance, which is especially evident in a mature use of oak. The 2004 is an opulent and beautifully poised Guado al Tasso that will offer much pleasure over the next decade. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2019.
