    • "Cont' Ugo" Rosso Bolgheri DOC 2017

      “Cont' Ugo” Rosso Bolgheri DOC 2017

      Dark ruby violet, smells of blackcurrants and unfolds with excellent length, firm tannin, fine extract sweetness and an emphatically spicy note in the final. We are curious to see what elegant flight of fancy this great Tuscan Merlot will take off in the coming years. SUPERIORE.DE

      "The 2017 Cont'Ugo is laced with red cherry jam, mocha, flowers, mint and sweet spices. Rich and voluptuous in the glass, with tremendous vivacity, the 2017 is another winner from Antinori's Guado al Tasso estate. The 2017 is plush, sumptuous, fruity and ripe, with silky tannins that give it striking immediacy and tons of appeal." Vinous

    • "Guado al Tasso" Bolgheri Superiore DOC 2017

      “Guado al Tasso” Bolgheri Superiore DOC 2017

      Elegant and complex: Guado al Tasso with a warmly toned bouquet and a fullness of fruit that is just as convincing as the harmonious structure. Deep dark, rich ruby-violet. Very clear and intense nose, redolent of blackberries, cassis and dark cherries, underpinned by fine, spicy notes with hints of white pepper and cardamom. Very juicy in the attack and course, shows a lot of sweet melting, interwoven, densely meshed tannin, smooth and elegant, very long finish. An excellent drop, which offers highest drinking pleasure. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Rich, sparkling ruby with vibrant purple. Shows notes of rich, ripe blackberries, dark currant, in the background of mint and macchia. Lardy and rich on the attack and course, finely meshed, dense tannins, long final with plenty of berry fruit." Falstaff

      "The opulent style typical of Guado al Tasso is confirmed this year. In warm vintages such as 2011, for example, it demonstrated character and power not without grace or personality. This vintage shows great fruit concentration with a floral touch, with ripe, forward cassis aroma and dark chocolate flavour. Still vinous on the palate, it shines for its youthfulness. Silky tannins give a slightly drier finish, but this is very well balanced for long ageing." Decanter

      "The 2017 Bolgheri Superiore Guado al Tasso is layered with red cherry, plum, licorice and dried flower notes. There is plenty of energy and tension. It will be interesting to see if the tannins soften a bit." Vinous

      "Impressive, featuring concentrated black currant and blackberry flavors, shaded by iron, black pepper, bell pepper and oak spice notes. The tannins show the assertive character of the vintage, overshadowing the fruit on the finish for now. Vibrant and long." Wine Spectator

      "A big, very rich red with powerful fruit and tannins, yet always polished and beautiful. Intense vanilla to the underlying ripe currants and blackberries. Full-bodied, very tight and polished. Drink after 2022, when it will be more together." James Suckling

      "From a warm and sunny vintage that produced darkly concentrated fruit, the Tenuta Guado al Tasso 2017 Bolgheri Superiore Guado al Tasso is a teaser and a super pleaser. This is one flashy wine. This carefully calculated blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Cabernet Franc and 15% Merlot pours from the bottle with a beautifully saturated and rich color. I double-decanted my sample before writing this review, and the wine's aromas showed immediate harmony and intensity. The wine seduces and flirts with all your senses. This vintage caps many years of study regarding blending: The Merlot is slightly decreased here, and the Cabernet Franc is slowly taking on a more important supporting role. The Petit Verdot that was used as a peppery accent two years ago has now been removed altogether. The results are pliant, seamless and fluid, and that's the big takeaway here. The wine is bountiful, round, supple and full-bodied. Unless you are decidedly not a fan of this style, there's nothing not to love. I had anticipated more tightness in terms of possible hot-vintage tannins, but I am very pleased by the general integration of the mouthfeel. The Guado al Tasso vineyards are located not too far from the sea, at a low elevation of about 60 meters above sea level. The soils are alluvial with a unique mix of limestone clay and sand, with pockets of rocks and are generally known as the Bolgheri Agglomerate." Robert Parker

    About the winemakersGuado al Tasso | AntinoriTuscany | Bolgheri
    Guado al Tasso | Antinori

    Before it was inherited by the famous Antinori wine-growing family in 1830, the Tenuta Guado al Tasso belonged to the noble family della Gherardesca. It had already begun producing wine in Bolgheri in the second half of the 17th century. It was mainly thanks to Guido Alberto della Gherardesca that decisive changes in viticulture were already introduced on the estate at that time. This magnificent estate of more than a thousand hectares is located in the amphitheatre of Bolgheri. It is surrounded by an idyllic natural landscape of 300 hectares of vineyards, forests, olive groves, Mediterranean flora, sunflowers and cereal fields. On the hills, which are only 45 to 65 metres high, the Mediterranean climate ensures balanced growing conditions throughout the year - an ideal prerequisite for early ripening grape varieties.

    No other winery in the Bolgheri region can boast such a high number of vines as Guado al Tasso. Besides the local Sangiovese, the international varieties Merlot, Cabernet and Syrah are cultivated. Petit Verdot and Vermentino are further white variations of the vine portfolio. As a rule, the grape harvest begins at the end of August, about two weeks earlier than in the Tuscan cultivation zones further from the coast.

    Thanks to the Antinori family's investments, vineyards and cellars are able to meet the highest demands. At the same time, Piero Antinori, probably the most brilliant and prudent entrepreneur of the Italian wine-growing scene, has significantly strengthened the reputation of the Denomination Bolgheri with his branch. With Renzo Cotarella as general director and oenologist, the prominent owner of the estate also has three very competent daughters at his side. The winery also benefits from a great team of managers, technicians and winemakers who are always committed to ensuring that the Antinori wine dynasty's truly remarkable quality standards are maintained in the future.

    The modern style drops of Tenuta Guado al Tasso have an immaculate clear profile throughout and captivate with their perfect fruit ripeness. New wooden barrels are favoured for the maturation of the noble plants in the maturation cellar. For years, the Bolgheri Rosso Superiore Guado al Tasso has been the showpiece of the house's range. This elegant wine is contrasted with the rather simple Bolgheri Rosso Bruciato, which, with its striking wood aroma, is clearly recognisable as a representative of modernity. SUPERIORE.DE

    "The Antinori winery can justifiably be described as the most important in Italy. Whether with regard to the quality of their wines, their high worldwide reputation or their perfect distribution structure, this classification does not seem exaggerated."Gambero Rosso
