    Winemaker Notes
    The 2014 Guado al Tasso is a less structured wine than usual but one with a crisp, savory finish and a balanced and complex fragrance. The nose shows notes of cherries under spirits, tobacco, candied oranges, and spices. The palate is vibrant, supple, and persistent with a spicy finish and aftertaste. In this vintage it was decided to use a larger percentage of Merlot and to eliminate the Petit Verdot, giving a final wine which differs from previous years.
    Blend: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc

    Climate: The 2014 vintage was an atypical one for the Bolgheri area, particularly during the course of the summer. The abundant rainfall and the lower than average temperatures during the month of July and part of August required intensive leaf removal and crop thinning to assure a full and proper  ripening of the crop. The climate improved after mid-August and became rather mild after mid-September, bringing the growing season - at least partially - back into balance.

    93: James Suckling
    The aromas of crushed berry, rose and violet are very attractive. Medium to full body, firm and silky tannins and a savory finish. Delicate finish.

    90: Wine Spectator
    Intense, matching black currant, blackberry, cedar and spice flavors to a sleek, light-weight frame. Drink now through 2020.
