2017 in der absoluten Spitzengruppe der Supertoskaner. Ungeheuer intensiv und verführerisch. Wenn man die überragende Qualität berücksichtigt, preislich immer noch attraktiv.
Cabernet Sauvignon 65%, Merlot 20%, Syrah 15%.
"Sattes, funkelndes Rubin mit kräftigem Violett. Zeigt Noten nach satten, reifen Brombeeren, dunklen Ribiseln, im Hintergrund nach Minze und Macchia. Schmalzig und satt in Ansatz und Verlauf, feinmaschiges, dichtes Tannin, im Finale langer Nachhall mit viel Beerenfrucht." 95 Punkte
"From a warm and sunny vintage that produced darkly concentrated fruit, the Tenuta Guado al Tasso 2017 Bolgheri Superiore Guado al Tasso is a teaser and a super pleaser. This is one flashy wine. This carefully calculated blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Cabernet Franc and 15% Merlot pours from the bottle with a beautifully saturated and rich color. The wine seduces and flirts with all your senses. This vintage caps many years of study regarding blending: The Merlot is slightly decreased here, and the Cabernet Franc is slowly taking on a more important supporting role. The Petit Verdot that was used as a peppery accent two years ago has now been removed altogether. The results are pliant, seamless and fluid, and that's the big takeaway here. The wine is bountiful, round, supple and full-bodied. Unless you are decidedly not a fan of this style, there's nothing not to love. I had anticipated more tightness in terms of possible hot-vintage tannins, but I am very pleased by the general integration of the mouthfeel." 97 Punkte
Suckling: "A big, very rich red with powerful fruit and tannins, yet always polished and beautiful. Intense vanilla to the underlying ripe currants and blackberries. Full-bodied, very tight and polished. Drink after 2022, when it will be more together." 97 Punkte
