The wine has a ruby colour both vivid and concentrated. Its bouquet is pleasant and intense, marked by spices and fruits, notably blackberry, blueberry, pepper, vanilla and violet. The taste is elegant and charactrised by soft tannins that owe their origin to a noble and full blending.
Special BOAR points - The 2004 Guidaccio has acquired lovely complexity in bottle. Scents of tobacco, licorice and grilled herbs lead to juicy cherries as this soft, forward red opens up in the glass. Floral notes add freshness on the high-toned finish. Once again, in 2004 Guidaccio is very representative of the qualities of the vintage in the way it emphasizes elegance and finesse over heft. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2020. ”
CINGHIALE RATING 4.3
Deep red with garnet highlights. On first taste this wine was kind of dumb. Closed in and not showing much other than good balance and potential. the score at that time was 3.6. On second tasting the way the wine opened up was amazing. Very expressive, fruity nose with sharp spiciness. Well balanced and structured taste-with good fruit to tannin and acidity balance. A very enjoyable wine with a deep inky, woody taste that lasted long after it was gone. The surprise of the day-considering the price.
