BRANDTenuta Guado al Tasso
A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and occasionally a small amount of Petit Verdot to best represent the complexity and elegance of the Bolgheri terroir. This wine has been produced since 1990 from vineyards on alluvial soils whose composition ranges from clay-sand to clay-loam with rocky deposits know as “scheletro”.
The vineyard is at between 45 and 60 metres of altitude, on loamy soils. The first vintage of Guado al Tasso was 1990. Following malolactic fermentation carried out in barrels, ageing in barrels lasts 18 months. Next comes the assemblage stage, followed by bottling. This cuvée is left to rest for 10 months prior to being sold. This powerful wine is built to stand the test of time, and has ageing potential of between 20 and 30 years.
