A complex and refined Tuscan red wine

The estate

Although the history of La Tenuta Guado al Tasso dates back to the late 1600s, the Italian estate saw a major expansion in the 1930s under the leadership of the heiress, Carlotta Della Gherardesca Antinori, mother of Piero Antinori and sister of Mario Incisa Della Rocchetta's wife, the owner of Tenuta San Guido.

Located in the prestigious Bolgheri DOC, Tenuta Antinori-Guado al Tasso is an iconic reference among fine Bolgheri Superiore wines due to their quality and elegance.

The vineyard

Tenuta Antinori - Guado al Tasso watches over a vineyard of around 320 hectares. This area enjoys a close proximity to the sea, whose mild climate, sunshine and constant sea breeze regulate both the summer heat and the cold winters. The vineyards are planted on the region’s typical alluvial soil, resting on sandy to silty-clay and rich in fine gravel. This typicity gives the wines a unique character and aromatic richness.

The wine

Guado al Tasso has been produced since 1990.

The vintage

2019 began with cool temperatures in April and May which slowed down the development of the vineyard. This delay is made up for thanks to the warm, dry conditions throughout the summer season, which enabled the grapes to reach an optimal ripeness.

Vinification and ageing

The grapes are harvested in a plot-by-plot manner and are rigorously sorted before and after destemming, in order to keep only the highest quality grapes for the production of this wine. Fermentation is carried out in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks, as is maceration for a period of 15 to 20 days. Following racking, the wine is placed in barrels for malolactic fermentation. In February, each wine is selected for the final blending. Following the blending, the Guado al Tasso wine is transferred to new French oak barrels for ageing. It is bottled in June 2021.
