Marchesi Antinori Tenuta Guado al Tasso Bolgheri Superiore, Tuscany, Italy, 2011, 750
James Suckling - "A dense, layered red with asphalt, berry and clove character. Figs too. Full body, chewy tannins and a juicy finish. Needs time to soften. Better in 2017. "
Vinous / Antonio Galloni - "The 2011 Guado al Tasso impresses for its balance and overall harmony. Silky and gracious, the 2011 is built on pure texture and balance. Plums, mocha, espresso and dark spices all blossom in the glass. The 2011 is all about texture persistence. Although the 2011 drinks well young, I also think it will develop nicely in bottle."
Wine Spectator - "Inky in both color and flavor, with black currant and blackberry notes, this is pure and focused, with well-integrated tannins and a saturated finish echoing the fruit. Best from 2016 through 2024."
