• "Il Bruciato" Rosso Bolgheri DOC 2019

      “Il Bruciato” Rosso Bolgheri DOC 2019

      A convincing and racy cuvée of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah with a wonderful bouquet of dark cherries, leather, mocha and lavender. Multilayered and powerful on the palate with a cornucopia of spice and dark fruit. Well-structured tannins flank the extremely tasty and expressive finish. SUPERIORE.DE

      "The Guado al Tasso 2019 Bolgheri Rosso Il Bruciato boasts generous fruit weight with layers of dark cherry, ripe blackberry, tobacco, spice and baker's chocolate. The tannins are plush and soft, and ultimately, it is the supple mouthfeel that gives this wine its mass appeal and exceedingly easy-drinking personality." Robert Parker

    • "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 2018

      “Guado al Tasso” Bolgheri Superiore DOC 2018

      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, smelling of blackberries, cassis and dark cherries, underpinned by fine, spicy notes with hints of white pepper and cardamom. Very juicy in attack and course, shows a lot of sweet melting, interwoven, tightly meshed tannin, supple and elegant, very long finish. An excellent wine that offers the highest drinking pleasure. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Sparkling, rich ruby-violet. Opens with notes of tobacco, then ripe plums, lots of elderberry, some liquorice in the background. Full-bodied and present on the palate, opens with rich berry fruit, dense tannin, juicy and rich pressure on the final." Falstaff

      "Rich, intense fruit flavors of black currant and black cherry are shaded by vanilla, toasty oak, iron, black olive and tobacco accents in this complex, harmonious red. Fine balance and a lingering finish cap it off." Wine Spectator

      "The 2018 Guado al Tasso is silky, delicate and exceptionally polished. I can't remember tasting another Guado like it. Medium in body and gracious, the 2018 offers up a compelling mélange of dark fruit, chocolate, cedar, licorice and dried herbs, all in a mid-weight style that is incredibly appealing. The 2018 has just been bottled, so it needs time to bounce back. I can't wait to taste it with a bit more time in bottle." Vinous

      "Lots of redcurrants and flowers on the nose, together with crushed stones. Full-bodied and very layered with beautiful fruit and density, yet it remains agile and light. The tannins are totally integrated. I like the light herbal touch to the red fruit here. Flower petals. Juicy, flavorful finish with citrus zest at the end." James Suckling

      "Aromas of dark fruit and freshly milled white pepper replace the more banal cherry-based flavors delivered by the Merlot, and the wine appears more lifted and precise as a result. The Cabernet Sauvignon delivers spice and licorice, and these pretty aromas are likewise given more breathing room, thanks to the counterparts found in the Cabernet Franc. Linearity, sharpness, pencil shavings and dark currant or blackberry-this is the direction Guado al Tasso is taking, and this 2018 vintage opens the door to a new chapter for the wine." Robert Parker

      "Guado al Tasso 2018 makes waves. Its nose has a leafy, almost herbal character and is quite different from the past vintages where the fruit was riper. The integration of this leafiness with restrained cassis is outstanding, the palate is silky and the tannins precise and creamy, with brilliant refreshing acidity. On the finish graphite minerality is elongated by the slightly bitter character of the wine. It represents faithfully the vintage and carries great complexity." Decanter

    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
