Antinori’s Guado al Tasso 2019 shows aromas of dark fruit and freshly ground white pepper. Cabernet Sauvignon brings notes of spices and licorice. Linearity, clarity, dark currant and blackberry: this is the direction that Guado al Tasso is taking and this 2018 vintage opens the doors to a new chapter for wine.
The Guado al Tasso estate is located in the center of the small and prestigious Bolgheri DOC area, and can count on 300 hectares of vineyards.
Tenuta Guado al Tasso was once part of the possessions of the noble Della Gherardesca family, whose roots in this region date back to over 1,200 years ago. In the 1930s the land was inherited by Carlotta della Gherardesca Antinori – mother of Piero Antinori – and by her sister, married to Mario Incisa della Rocchetta (who bought the nearby Tenuta San Guido).
The 300 hectares of vineyards in the Guado al Tasso estate are located at an altitude of 45-60m a.s.l. on various types of terrain.
The cultivated varieties are Vermentino, Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah and Cabernet Franc.
