    • "Il Bruciato" Rosso Bolgheri DOC 2018

      “Il Bruciato” Rosso Bolgheri DOC 2018

      Deep dark cuvée of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah with a wonderful bouquet of lavender and tobacco. Fruity with slight spicy and vegetable hints. The taste is concentrated and at the same time smooth with a pleasant persistence on the palate. SUPERIORE.DE

      "This blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah opens with aromas of cassis, underbrush and tobacco. The savory, balanced palate offers blackberry, clove and white pepper alongside polished tannins." Wine Enthusiast

      "The Tenuta Guado al Tasso 2018 Bolgheri Rosso Il Bruciato is a steal at this price point. Indeed, this blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah has consistently affirmed its very reputation on the fact that it so effortlessly hits that sweet spot between value and quality year after year. The wine opens to soft, supple fruit with blackberry and blackcurrants backed by spice, leather and tobacco. The aromas are fresh, fruit-forward and very inviting. The sweet succulence of the wine immediately invites a pairing with marinaded or barbecued meats slow-cooked over embers. In terms of mouthfeel, Il Bruciato is designed to be approachable and most importantly: food friendly. You can't go wrong here. I notice that the integration of fruit is particularly well-managed in this cooler vintage." Robert Parker

      "A rich, layered young red with blackberries, plums and chocolate. It’s full-bodied and intense with black-chocolate and hazelnut character. So well crafted." James Suckling

    • "Cont' Ugo" Rosso Bolgheri DOC 2016

      “Cont' Ugo” Rosso Bolgheri DOC 2016

      Dark ruby violet, smells of blackcurrants and unfolds with excellent length, tight tannin 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

      "Intense bright ruby red with brightening rim. In the nose it is hearty and full, intense with ripe wild berries and a soft spice in the aftertaste, very precise. Dense in base and flow, opens up on dense and compact tannin, without frills and with full pressure to the final. Falstaff

      "A soft and delicious merlot with berry, meat and walnut aromas. Hints of chocolate. Medium body, fine tannins and a delicious, juicy finish." James Suckling

      "A pure expression of Merlot, the 2016 Bolgheri Rosso Cont'Ugo is a ripe and loosely knit red wine that would wash down nicely with easy pasta dishes. The wine shows the rich softness of the grape with black cherry, tilled earth and Mediterranean herb. The wine is immediately open and accessible." Robert Parker

      "This rich, vibrant red is packed with plum, black cherry and wild thyme flavors, with well-integrated tannins. Flashes of earth, leather and iron segue into the long, fruit-filled aftertaste." Wine Spectator

      "The 2016 Cont'Ugo offers a super-appealing mix of rich, dark fruit and bright acids with notes of black cherry, graphite, plum, chocolate, savory herbs and leather. Another year in bottle has done wonders for the 2016, which is showing very well today. Drink it over the next decade or so." Vinous

    About the winemakers
    Guado al Tasso | Antinori
    Tuscany | 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
