2013 Antinori Guado Al Tasso Cont'Ugo Merlot
This wine is an interpretation of the Bolgheri territory made with only Merlot grapes; production started with the 2011 vintage. It matures for 12 to 14 months in oak barriques before being bottled where it ages for at least 10 months. The fragrance and young, fruity exuberance are its primary characteristics. It is a deep, complex and very pleasant wine. The nose of the wine shows notes of plums and blueberries along with sweet spices and underbrush. On the palate, it is vibrant, long, and balanced. The harmony and the fullness of fruit on the finish and aftertaste are the characterizing traits of the wine.
