Forever the superstar, the 2011 Bolgheri Superiore Guado al Tasso is a delicious wine that never holds back in terms of intensity and seamless integration. Every detail has been finessed. The blend is 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot. Each vineyard parcel is fermented separately to maintain varietal identity. The wine’s appearance is dark and luscious with thick extraction and a vibrant dark garnet hue. Generous aromas of dark fruit, tobacco and chocolate lift steadily from the glass. The mouthfeel is soft and yielding with a great sense of tannic persistency that holds up the finish, which can be counted in many long minutes. Give this wine five years or more to fully evolve.||I sat down with Renzo Cotarella and his team of winemakers this summer to taste through various wines produced by the Antinori family. Although 2011 was a difficult vintage, I need to enthusiastically recommend their pure expression of Cabernet Franc called Matarocchio. It is my favorite pick among all the wines I tasted in Bolgheri this year. eRobertParker.com.October, 2014
