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 2017 growing season began with mild and rather dry
winter weather conditions that prompted early bud break. A
sudden drop in temperaturesat the end of April thataffected
manyareas in Tuscany did not cause any damage in Bolgheri
due to itsvicinityto the seathat mitigates temperatures keeping
them above zero. The months of Maythrough August were
characterized by hot dry weather, such conditions limited the
vines’vegetative cycle and reduced the size of the clusters. Rain
showersat the end of Augustand September lowered
temperatures slightly guaranteeing a balanced ripening cycle
especiallyfor the grape varieties that require longer hang time.
Harvesting began early, starting with Merlot on August 26
th
and aftera brief pause, continued with Cabernet Franc and
Cabernet Sauvignon during the last half of September.

Vinification
Upon arrival in the cellar, grapes were sorted on two separate occasions; once before destemming and again
immediatelyafter to guarantee that only perfectlyripe berries reached fermentation vats. Each single vineyard parcel
was subdivided into smaller blocksand grapes were harvested separately based on climatic trendsand individual
characteristics of each grape varietyand then fermented separately. Fermentation and maceration took place in
temperature controlled stainless steelvats for 15-20 days. After racking operations, the wine was transferred
directlyinto barriques where malolactic fermentation was completed bythe end of the year. In February, we
selected wine from the very bestvineyard blocksand made the final blend. Guado al Tasso was then transferred into
new French oak barriques where itaged up until bottling in July 2019.
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
“scheletro”.
