2008Antinori Guado Al Tasso

Sold Out

Red Blend-Italy-Tuscany

On the nose the wine shows elegant notes of toasted oak coffee and spices followed by aromas of plums and black currants. On the palate the initial impact is soft but firm with a vein of acidity which gives greater freshness and crispness than usual. The tannins are extremely elegant and the aftertaste is very persistent with sustained and lingering notes of the coffee berry fruit and toasted oak first perceived on the nose. It is a vintage with a great aging potential. Italy.
