Guado al Tasso is a red wine made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot grapes in the Bolgheri region (Italy) by the Marchesi Antinori winery.
It represents the complexity and elegance of the Bolgheri terroir. This wine has been produced since 1990 from vineyards on alluvial soils whose composition ranges from clay-sandy to clay-loam with rocky deposits known as "scheletro".
The shape of the land creates a unique microclimate with favourable temperature fluctuations. The estate's vineyards sit at the foot of the Bolgheri amphitheatre, a perfect spot when the evening breeze cools the vines. These special climatic conditions give the grapes distinct aromas and guarantee a perfect ripening of the berries.
Guado al Tasso Tasting Notes
Deep ruby red in colour, this is a wine with a broad impact on the nose, with aromas of mint, coffee, plum and spices emerging and mingling in a continuous evolution.
On the palate, the tannin texture is unusually dense and silky. A deep and long wine, very elegant.
