    60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 10% Syrah and other varieties.ÿDeep crimson. A little bit of oak in evidence. Less concentrated than some. Slighlty leafy with a tiny hint of sweet vanilla oak. A bit of heat on the finish.

    Silky and refined, with blackberry, tobacco and mineral aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, with a solid core of tannins and a refined finish. Reserved and structured. 11,600 cases made.

    Tenuta Belvedere is the Antinori property in Bolgheri, once part of an enormous estate from which the vineyards of both Ornellaia and Sassicaia were carved out. After an excellent 1998, the wines of both 1999 and, particularly, 2000 were significantly less successful, but the 2001 Guado al Tasso should help forget this temporary unevenness. A dense ruby with purple highlights, the wine is loaded with aromas and flavors of perfectly ripe blackcurrant and blackberry fruit, minerals, sage, and thyme. The wine is more fragrant and more finely-spun than Antinori's other Bordeaux wine, Solaia, but there is no lack of concentration and density here, though both are tempered by a satiny texture and polished tannins which are all elegance and breed.

    Big dark fruit on the nose and palate. Chocolate and casis dominate the flavor profile of this young wine. Long finish.

    Opened and tasted immediately and was expecting that 9 years of cellaring would make this bottle ready but it was very closed. Saved it for the second night and patience paid off - the aromas of leather blackberry dark cherry and cedar were jumping out of the glass. I couldn't get enough, smooth silk and the best dark mocha to finish it off - went back and bought more last week.

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.
