Mere information

Antinori familiens fantastiske Tenuta Guado al Tasso befinder sig i Bolgheri området på den toskanske kyst, ca. 90 km sydvest for byen Firenze. Kvalitetspotentialet er enormt, og det understreges af, at området i dag rummer Italiens elite af vinmagere. Oprindeligt tilhørte Tenute Guado al Tasso della Gheradesca familien, hvis rødder i regionen går mere end 1.200 år tilbage. I 1930'erne tilfaldt ejendommen Carlotta della Gherardesca Antinori, som er Marchese Piero Antinoris moder, samt hendes søster, der senere giftede sig med Mario Inchisa della Rocchetta, og som medgift fik Tenuta San Guido ejendommen, der i dag producerer Sassicaia.

Tenuta Guado al Tasso er på 1.000 hektar, hvoraf de 300 hektar er beplantet med vinmarker. Vinmarkerne befinder sig i centrum af det såkaldte "Bolgheri amfiteater", der består af rullende bjergskråninger, der omgiver et fantastisk plateau, som skråner blidt mod havet og skaber et mikroklima med unikke egenskaber. Markerne er tilplantet med både Vermentino, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot og Petit Verdot, sammen med små mængder af andre druesorter.

Climate
The 2016 vintage was characterized bya mild winter with
sporadic butabundant rainfall which assisted in creating
important reserves of ground water in the sub-soil. The vines
began their cycle of growth and developmenta bit earlier than
in a normal season and then proceeded in aregular fashion,
accompanied byasunnyspring with temperaturesand rainfall
which respected normal seasonalaverages. The summer was, on
the whole,a warm one but without significant temperature
peaks. The ripening of the grapes proceeded with sunny days,
low rainfall,and cool eveningsand nights which favored the
development ofaromatic components in the crop, maintaining
an excellent freshnessas well,an indispensable factor for
elegantand long-lived grapes. The harvest began with the
Merlot on September 5th, continued with the Cabernet Franc
towards the middle of the month,and concluded with the
Cabernet Sauvignon on October 5th.

Vinification
The grapes, upon their deliveryto the cellars, were selected in two different phases: first upon theirarrivaland then
during the destemming in order to guarantee that onlythe finest part of the crop went into the fermentation tanks.
As in everyvintage, the individualvineyard plots were sub-divided into aseries of single parcels to be picked on the
basis of the climate of the vintage and the characteristics of the grapes, fermenting them then separately. The grapes
were then fermented fora period of 15-20 days in stainless steel tanks. After being run off its skins, the wine went
directlyinto small oak barrels where, bythe end of the year, the malolactic fermentation was completed. In the
month of Februarythe wine of the finest parcels was selected and blended together. Guado al Tasso then went back
into new French oak barrels where itaged until bottling in July of 2018.
Historical Data

represent the complex and elegant terroir found in Bolgheri. This wine has been produced since 1990 from
vineyards on alluvial soils whose composition ranges from clay-sand to clay-loam with rocky deposits known as
