Guado al Tasso is the prestigious flagship wine of the Tenuta Guado al Tasso, and it fully expresses the Bolgheri terroir in all its structure, elegance and complexity. It is a cabernet sauvignon-merlot blend introduced with the 1990 vintage and it is one of Antinori’s world class Super-Tuscan wines. The successive vintages are 1992, 1993, 1994, 1995, 1996 and 1997. All the vintages have been produced in limited quantities.
Situated in Maremma on the Tuscan coast, 96km south-west of Florence, the Guado al Tasso estate extends from the green hills surrounding the old village of Bolgheri down to the sea. This beautiful plain is called the anfiteatro bolgherese due to the fact that the hills enclose the plains overlooking the sea to form a natural amphitheatre.
If one could sum up Antinori’s philosophy in a sentence it would be, according to Marchese Piero Antinori, "Age-old roots play an important role in our philosophy, but they have not served to inhibit our innovative spirit." In fact, Antinori continually experiments in its vineyards and at its wineries.
