    ($80) Very dark ruby with a blackish core. Deep aromas of blackberry, cocoa and cinnamon fill the nose. Dense and exceedingly plush, displaying luscious dark berry flavors, with graphite appearing on the long finish. In spite of its formidable structure the wine maintains an admirable sense of balance.

    Aromas of red licorice, with cut flowers and cumin and a hint of tarragon. Full-bodied, with tight and firm tannins, yet fresh and solid. Give this time; should open up. Slightly rustic. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah. 9,500 cases made.

    Spectacular, the 1999 Guado Al Tasso possesses sweet tannin and accessibility. Its explosive aromatics consist of smoke, licorice, espresso, chocolate, vanillin, and celestial black currants. With sensational concentration, flamboyant flavors, an opulent texture, full body, and brilliant concentration as well as delineation, it comes across as intense, balanced, pure, and rich.

    Dark purple with blackcurrant and blackberry on the nose. Smooth tannin and great mouthfeel held deep fruit flavors. Nice wine or sure.

    I was a bit disappointed. It is probably over the top. Dull for an italian wine.

Although the Antinori family has been making wine for over 600 years and is steeped in tradition, they haven't been afraid to modernize production and to take an innovative approach to blending. One result is the world famous Super Tuscan "Tignanello," a blend of Sangiovese (85%), Cabernet Sauvignon (10%), and Cabernet Franc (5%). Marchesi Piero Antinori is the current proprietor of the estate, and was instrumental in creating Tignanello, propelling the popularity of Super Tuscans worldwide.

Antinori produces wines from the Italian regions of Tuscany and Umbria. In addition to Tignanello, some of Antinori's most well-known wines include Solaia, Guado al Tasso, Campo di Sasso, Badia a Passignano, Pian delle Vigne, and Chianti Classico. Antinori's various estates include 1,400 hectares of vineyards planted in Bolgheri, Montalcino, Orvieto, Montepulciano, and Chianti Classico, as well as the emerging locales Sovana and southern Maremma.
