Technical Data Sheet
CHARACTERISTICS
  • TypeStill dry red wine DOC
  • Location Tuscany
  • Grapes Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc
  • Sensations Intense ruby red colour. The nose expresses attractive notes of sweet spices and ripe dark berries, liquorice root, leather and tobacco. On the palate the quality of the tannins is very graceful: silky on the entry and vibrant on the finish. A wine of great balance, pleasantness and harmony.
  • Vinification On arrival at the winery, the grapes were selected at two separate times to ensure that only perfectly ripe berries reached the fermentation tanks. As with every harvest, the individual vineyard plots were divided into many small parcels according to the weather conditions of the year, distinguished by grape characteristics and vinified separately. Fermentation and maceration took place in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature for 15-20 days. After racking, the wine was transferred directly into barriques, where malolactic fermentation took place by the end of the year. In February, the best vinified plots were selected and blended. Guado al Tasso was then transferred back into new French oak barriques where it remained to age until bottling.

    "Guado al Tasso" Bolgheri DOC Superiore 2020
  • Guado al Tasso is the marvellous Bolgheri estate of Marchesi Antinori. Here, Sangiovese gives way, for once, to the great international grape varieties, originally from the Bordeaux area, namely Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc. The particular climatic and soil conditions of the Tuscan coast, in fact, have proved to be particularly suitable for the production of wines produced in a "French" style and matured in small oak barrels. Guado al Tasso is the result of a careful selection, first in the vineyard and then in the cellar, of the grapes harvested at two different times. All this is to ensure that only perfectly ripe grapes reach the fermentation tanks. Each variety is vinified separately. Fermentation and maceration take place in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks and, after racking, the wine is transferred directly into barriques, where malolactic fermentation takes place. Only in February of the year following the harvest are the best batches selected and blended into the final blend. At that point, the wine is transferred back into new French oak barriques where it continues to age until bottling. Guado al Tasso 2018 presents itself in the glass with a beautiful intense ruby red colour. The nose reveals attractive notes of sweet spices and small ripe dark fruits, liquorice root, leather and tobacco. In the mouth the quality of the tannins is very graceful: silky on the entry and vibrant on the finish. A wine characterised by great balance, pleasantness and harmony. Perfect with main courses of meat, it is a wine that is especially appreciated if the steak is cooked slowly on the grill.

    It can be said that the Antinori family has represented Italian wine in the world for practically as long as it has existed. And it would not even be an exaggeration, given that the Antinori have dedicated themselves to the vineyard and the cellar for more than six hundred years. Ever since, in 1385, Giovanni di Piero Antinori became a member of the Arte Fiorentina dei Vinattieri. Since then, 26 generations of the family have succeeded one another at the helm of the group which today is one of the best known and most appreciated on a global level. Today the company is headed by Marquis Piero Antinori, with the support of his three daughters Albiera, Allegra and Alessia, all of whom are personally involved in the company's activities. To the family's historic Tuscan and Umbrian estates, several others have been added over time. Everywhere the aim of the Antinori family is to make the most of the particular terroir, to produce fascinating and in some way memorable wines. Among the "masterpieces" signed by Antinori we cannot forget the great Supertuscan of the family, Solaia and Tignanello, mythical bottles that fans all over the world eagerly await, vintage after vintage. Or the Chianti Classico wines that represent a point of reference for all wine lovers.
