The Guado al Tasso estate is located in the small but prestigious Bolgheri DOC, on the coast of upper Maremma. This appellation has a relatively recent history as DOC Bolgheri, approved only in 1995, but since then it has become an internationally recognized reference point for the Italian and international winemaking community. The parent company of the estate is Marchesi Antinori, credited with creating the first Super Tuscan in 1971 with the now famous and lauded Tignanello.

The estate's essential geographic feature is the Bolgheri Amphitheater, a beautiful plain encircled by rolling hillsides that face the Tyrrhenian Sea. This landscape creates a unique microclimate with beneficial temperature fluctuations. The estate's vineyards are located at the foot of the amphitheater, an optimal position as cold nocturnal breezes cool down the vines. The greater property contains a biodiverse mix, planted with wheat, sunflowers and olive groves. The overall setting almost guarantees ideal growth conditions.

The 2018 Guado al Tasso is still in barrel, but holds tremendous promise. Silky, perfumed, nuanced and distinctly medium in body, the 2018 had much to offer. This vintage is marked by strong floral, savory Cabernet Franc notes that play well off the wine’s mid-weight structure. There is so much to look forward to.
