Closure Cork
Producer Antinoris Guado al Tasso estate débuted with the 1990 vintage, and covers 1,000 hectares of land stretching from the hills around the village of Bolgheri down to the coast. The vineyard itself comprises 300 hectares, with the remainder planted to wheat, sunflower and olives.

Vineyard

The vineyards lie at 45-60 metres above sea level, and has rocky, slightly limestone soil. Harvesting was done by hand, and grapes were bought to the winery in small crates.
 
Winery

After destemming and gentle crushing, the varieties were fermented separately in stainless steel vats at a temperature of 25-30°C, maceration lasting 15-20 days with regular pumping over. The wine was racked into new oak barriques, where it completed malolactic fermentation, and after eighteen months of ageing, the best lots were blended and bottled.

Taste

Powerful yet displaying great lightness of touch, this Guado Al Tasso has vibrant aromas of plum, mint, mocha and spice, leading to a silky smooth palate of beautiful poise and precision.
Press a wine to fall in love with at first sight. This blend ... offers enormous fullness and generosity that accompanies all the senses. The effect is seamless with thick extraction and richness that is contrasted against the tonic freshness of the fruit. The wine is creamy, soft and enduring. 95 points, The Wine Advocate , October 2015
 Alluring violet, black currant, blackberry, wild herb, spice and mineral aromas coat the dense underlying structure at first, but the latter emerges as this cruises to a long conclusion. Shows excellent balance and expression of fruit and place. 95 points, Wine Spectator , October 2015
