            [Notes4] => The 2015 vintage was characterized by a winter of
average coldness and a spring whose weather was mild
and dry. The bud break, along with the flowering, as a
consequence, was earlier than the preceding vintage. The
first part of saw a significant rise in temperatures, which
then came back into balance from the second half of
August on, allowing the grapes to achieve a perfect state

            [WineMakingNotes] => he harvesting of the grapes began on September 12th with the Merlot and terminated on October
9th with the Cabernet Sauvignon. The grapes were selected in two different moments. first
immediately after picking and then after the destemming in order to insure that only fully ripe
berries went into the fermentation tanks. As in every vintage, the individual vineyard plots were
sub-divided into a series of smaller harvesting units on the basis of the weather of the growing
season, distinguishing them according to the characteristics of the grapes and fermenting them
separately. The fermentation itself took place in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks and
lasted from fifteen to twenty days. After the wine was run off its skins, it went directly into small
oak barrels, where it went through a complete malolactic fermentation. At the end of the first year
of aging in the new oak barrels, the wine was blended and went back into oak for a further six
months of aging before bottling

reflected in the great wines produced in this terroir. Guado al Tasso is the prestigious flagship wine of this estate and fully expresses this unique terroir in all its structure, elegance and complexity.
                    [Notes2] => Bolgheri, the prestigious small appellation in which Guado al Tasso is located, was famous for its rosé wines until the 1970’s; for this wine , and for white wines as well, it received appellation status in 1984, which was then extended to the red wines of the area in 1994. The zone in any case, is known and prized for its exceptional red wines, its so-called “Super Tuscans”. with this important richness and with the elevated quality of its wines, Bolgheri has become one of the new capitals of world oenology

                    [Notes3] => The overall surface area of the estate is over 1000 hectares (2500 acres), 300 of which (750 acres) are planted to vines; there are, in addition, woods, known as the Macchia del Bruciato, where Cinta Senese pigs, a prized Tuscan breed, and other animals are allowed to graze in the wild. The vineyards – 45-65 meters above sea level on soils of various composition – are planted to Vermentino, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Petit Verdot along with small quantities of other grape varieties.
 Thanks to a mild climate created by the nearby
 presence of the sea and the constant breezes which mitigate the extremes of summer heat and winter cold, sweep the sky clean of clouds and cover, and accordingly increase the amount and intensity of sunlight, the harvest here normally commences at the end of August, two weeks earlier than the more inland zones of Tuscany. An ideal climate as well for the small greenhouse where the different varieties of young vines to be planted are grown and then utilized in the other Antinori estates in Tuscany and Umbria.

The vineyards – 45-65 meters above sea level on soils of various composition – are planted to Vermentino, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Petit Verdot along with small quantities of other grape varieties.
 Thanks to a mild climate created by the nearby
 presence of the sea and the constant breezes which mitigate the extremes of summer heat and winter cold, sweep the sky clean of clouds and cover, and accordingly increase the amount and intensity of sunlight, the harvest here normally commences at the end of August, two weeks earlier than the more inland zones of Tuscany. An ideal climate as well for the small greenhouse where the different varieties of young vines to be planted are grown and then utilized in the other Antinori estates in Tuscany and Umbria.

he harvesting of the grapes began on September 12th with the Merlot and terminated on October 9th with the Cabernet Sauvignon. The grapes were selected in two different moments. first immediately after picking and then after the destemming in order to insure that only fully ripe berries went into the fermentation tanks. As in every vintage, the individual vineyard plots were sub-divided into a series of smaller harvesting units on the basis of the weather of the growing season, distinguishing them according to the characteristics of the grapes and fermenting them separately. The fermentation itself took place in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks and lasted from fifteen to twenty days. After the wine was run off its skins, it went directly into small oak barrels, where it went through a complete malolactic fermentation. At the end of the first year of aging in the new oak barrels, the wine was blended and went back into oak for a further six months of aging before bottling
