Bolgheri - top wines from Italy's wine elite
The Bolgheri wines are produced in the municipality of Castagneto Carducci in the province of Livorno in Tuscany. The area's wines made their international breakthrough in 1974, when a 6-year-old wine from the area won a tasting of some of the best wines from Bordeaux. The quality potential of Bolgheri is enormous, and this is underlined by the fact that the area today houses the entire Italian elite of winemakers.
Tenuta Guado al Tasso - the top of Bolgheri
Originally, Tenute belonged to Guado al Tasso della Gheradesca family, whose roots in the region go back more than 1,200 years. In the 1930s, the property belonged to Carlotta della Gherardesca Antinori, who is the mother of Marchese Piero Antinori. Tenuta Guado al Tasso is on 1,000 hectares, of which 300 hectares are planted with vineyards. The vineyards are located in the center of the so-called "Bolgheri amphitheater", which consists of rolling hillsides that surround a stunning plateau, which slopes gently towards the sea and creates a microclimate with unique characteristics. The fields are planted with both Vermentino, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot.
World-class Cabernet based wine
Guado al Tasso is made from 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot. The grapes are harvested by hand and brought to the cellars in small baskets. Here the bunches are hand-sorted so that only perfectly ripe and strutting healthy grapes reach the fermentation tanks. The grapes from different sections of the vineyards ferment separately to preserve the individual characteristics. The fermentation lasts for 15-20 days at a controlled temperature, after which it is changed to new barriques. Here the wine is stored for 12 months, after which the final blend is created. Next, another 6 months on tap before the wine is bottled. Guado al Tasso is a world-class wine with an intense and dizzyingly deep aroma of cherries and black currants with hints of coffee and dark chocolate. The taste is concentrated, elegant and complex and results in a long and soft aftertaste. An unmistakable character of the grape varieties used with a strong regional character.
