"The 2006 Guardavigna
is even better. Here the fruit is riper,
darker and richer. Blackberries, blueberries,
grilled herbs, minerals and
tar emerge from this dark, brooding
beauty. The wine possesses gorgeous
inner perfume and an utterly captivating
personality. The tannins remain
imposing, so a few years of cellaring
are recommended, but readers lucky
enough to find the Guardavigna are in
for a thrilling drinking experience.
Guardavigna is Cabernet Sauvignon,
Merlot, Petit Verdot and Sangiovese.
Anticipated maturity: 2012-2026.
Score: 96 (Antonio Galloni, www.erobertparker.
