The 2021 Bolgheri Superiore Guado al Tasso is a very beautiful wine but also quite a departure from the style that made it famous years ago. Readers will find an especially polished Guado al Tasso a wine that emphasizes finesse more than power. Silky tannins wrap around a core of black cherry fruit licorice spice mocha and new leather. Bright saline undertones extend the exquisite finish. There's more Cabernet Franc in the blend these days and that very much comes through in the wine's crazy aromatic presence and feel.

Antinori turned out a superb Guado al Tasso in 2021. Like all the Antinori wines these days, Guado al Tasso benefits from a more finessed approach than in the past. Franc features significantly in the 2021, and that comes through in the wine’s aromatic profile and overall feel.
