Description

Guado al Tasso, the prestigious iconic wine of this estate, is a perfect expression of the structure, complexity and elegance of Bolgheri wines. Made with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, it is aged for 14 months in new barriques of French oak, and then for 10 months in the bottle. The Merlot gave Guado al Tasso a tasty sweetness, depth and the intense aroma of dark fruit. The Cabernet Sauvignon imbued it with extraordinary richness, bringing with it more dark fruit aromas mixed in with liquorice, but nothing vegetable. The Cabernet Franc gave it great harmony and balance, mellowing out the high concentrations of tannins of the preceding grapes, and the small amount of Petit Verdot added a spicy flair that helped to complete the bouquet. It’s a concentrated wine of great class and elegance, and it will age beautifully.
The grapes for Guado al Tasso were sorted on two different occasions, first immediately after picking and then after destemming operations, in order to guarantee that only completely ripe berries went to the fermentation tanks. As in every harvest, the individual vineyards were sub-divided into a series of small parcels which were picked separately on the basis of their ripeness levels, distinguishing them by the characteristics of the grapes and fermenting them parcel by parcel. The fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks, and the period of skin contact lasted from 15 to 20 days. After being run off its skins, the wine went directly into small oak barrels where it was put through a complete malolactic fermentation. The various lots of wine, after a year of aging in new French oak barrels, were blended together and the wine then put back into barrel for the final six month phase of aging before bottling.

TASTING NOTES

Guado al Tasso is a structured wine with crisp, savory finish and a balanced and complex fragrance. The nose shows notes of cherries under spirits, tobacco, candied oranges, and spices. The palate is vibrant, supple, and persistent with a spicy finish and aftertaste. In this vintage it was decided to use a larger percentage of Merlot and to eliminate the Petit Verdot, giving a final wine which differs from previous years.

FOOD MATCHING SUGGESTIONS

This Tuscan red combines perfectly with red meats, game, stuffed roasted with spicy and braised pasta, seasoned cheese.
