            [Notes1] => Vermentino from Tenuta Guado al Tasso is straw yellow in color with greenish hues. Intense on the nose with notes of citrus fruit, white flower blossoms and tropical fruit. The palate is savory with good persistence of flavors and finishes fresh with hints of citrus fruit.
            [Notes2] => Tenuta Guado al Tasso is located in the small but prestigious Bolgheri DOC, on the coast of upper Maremma, about one hundred kilometers southwest from Florence. The estate covers an area of about 320 hectares planted with vines, set in a beautiful plain encircled by rolling hillsides known as the `Bolgheri Amphitheatre`. The nearby sea provides a mild climate with constant breezes that mitigate summer heat and alleviate harsh winter weather, maintaining clear skies and a high level of sunlight exposure.
            [Notes3] => 
            [Notes4] => The 2022 growing season in Bolgheri was afflicted by drought conditions that began in winter and lasted throughout most of summer. Mid-August brought a series of thunderstorms that proved to be beneficial for the vines’ most critical ripening period.
These climate conditions guaranteed perfectly healthy fruit but, on the other hand, slowed down vegetative growth and reduced overall production, especially noticeable with Vermentino clusters that were smaller than average and consequently produced lower yields. The grape harvest began earlier than usual with first selections at the end of August and was completed by mid-September. Grapes harvested earlier had higher acidity and lively floral aromas while those harvested later presented riper berries with higher concentrations of extract and citrusy notes.
            [MediaNotes] => 
            [ServingSuggestion] => 
            [WineMakingNotes] => Each vineyard parcel was harvested separately, based on the level of maturity of the grapes, aimed at preserving and enhancing the complex territorial characteristics of each individual vineyard block. Upon arrival at the cellars, grapes were destemmed, delicately crushed, and gently pressed. The resulting must was transferred into stainless steel temperature controlled fermentation tanks where alcoholic fermentation took place at a temperature of 16 °C (61 °F). Each individual lot was carefully and systematically evaluated and then blended. Vermentino Tenuta Guado al Tasso was bottled in January 2023.

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.

                    [Notes1] => 300 ha of vineyards are located at the centre of the so called ‘Bolgheri amphitheatre’ – gentle hills surrounding a magnificent plain, rolling down to the sea. The amphitheatre has a micro climate with unique features 
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.

About this product +

Producer >

300 ha of vineyards are located at the centre of the so called ‘Bolgheri amphitheatre’ – gentle hills surrounding a magnificent plain, rolling down to the sea. The amphitheatre has a micro climate with unique features 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.

Viticulture >

Tenuta Guado al Tasso is located in the small but prestigious Bolgheri DOC, on the coast of upper Maremma, about one hundred kilometers southwest from Florence. The estate covers an area of about 320 hectares planted with vines, set in a beautiful plain encircled by rolling hillsides known as the `Bolgheri Amphitheatre`. The nearby sea provides a mild climate with constant breezes that mitigate summer heat and alleviate harsh winter weather, maintaining clear skies and a high level of sunlight exposure.

Winemaking >

Each vineyard parcel was harvested separately, based on the level of maturity of the grapes, aimed at preserving and enhancing the complex territorial characteristics of each individual vineyard block. Upon arrival at the cellars, grapes were destemmed, delicately crushed, and gently pressed. The resulting must was transferred into stainless steel temperature controlled fermentation tanks where alcoholic fermentation took place at a temperature of 16 °C (61 °F). Each individual lot was carefully and systematically evaluated and then blended. Vermentino Tenuta Guado al Tasso was bottled in January 2023.
