Dark ruby red. Intense aromas of currant, flowers and leather. Opulent. Full-bodied, with supervelvety tannins and powerful fruit. Layered and beautiful on the palate. This has a long life ahead of it. I would still give it a few more years. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah. Best after 2009. --1997 Italian blind retrospective, 2007

We tasted the 1997 Guado at the end of the meal, and I was so happy with its wonderful balsamic, berry and earth character. It was full and silky, with loads of decadent character. It's another 1997 Tuscan just coming into its own at the moment. 95 points, non-blind.
 

Additional Information

Region :
Italy
As the world’s top wine-exporter, Italy is an important wine region both because of the amount and quality of wines produced. Just two grapes—Nebbiolo and Sangiovese—are used to make some of the finest Italian wines, including Barolo, Brunello de Montalcino and Chianti. Still, Italy is home to dozens of wine grape varieties, with important wines being made from Corvina, Barbera, Cortese, Moscato and traditionally French varietals. The major wine regions include Piedmont, Tuscany, Emilia-Romagna, Veneto, Campania and others. Most producers follow the government-regulated DOC classification system, with a few notable exceptions including the esteemed “Super Tuscan” producers. View all our items from Italy
