The grapes coming from vineyards on the Tenuta Guado al Tasso Estate, were harvested in the early hours of the morning and, in order to give a good structure and aromas, a small quantity were vinified with the "crio-maceration" method (the must remains in contact with skins for almost 6 hours at a temperature of 5°C) and the other quantity were gently pressed. The two parts of must were then cooled down to induce natural clarification. The wine was then racked and the alcoholic fermentation took place at a temperature which was kept below 18°C. The wine obtained is stored in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperature until bottling. The vinification techniques employed have made it possible to enhance aromas and the typical varietal structure.
The Guado al Tasso Estate is located in the prestigious Bolgheri DOC, part of the Tuscan coastal area of Maremma, known for its untamed landscape and unspoiled beauty. Just 60 miles southwest of Florence, it sits on a magnificent plain in the heart of the Bolgheri amphitheater, a natural phenomenon created by hills that embrace the sea and produce a mild and temperate microclimate. Blessed with ample sunshine and constant breezes that take the edge off the summer heat and winter cold, Guado al Tasso is the ideal environment for cultivating healthy vine growth and proper ripening of the estate’s grapes. Inherited from Carlotta della Gherardesca, and revolutionized by Niccoló Antinori, the mother and father of Piero Antinori, Guado al Tasso is a reference point property in the life and history of the family. Here the challenge is to create wines of absolute excellence, always representative of the Bolgheri history, culture, and winemaking traditions.
