Antinori Guado al Tasso
INFORMATION OF INTEREST Antinori Guado al Tasso 2017
Colour: Clean, clear and bright. Cherry color with violet reflections. High layer intensity. Very nice to see.
Aroma: On the nose, it is complexity in its maximum state, and where, the range of aromas is immense. The introduction is made by notes of red fruit, where the cherry stands out with expressive touches of blackcurrant, ending with suggestive tertiary aromas, where we find aromas of roasted nuts, coffee and chocolate.
Taste: Entry into the mouth with the same complexity as the nose. Meaty and voluptuous, but with a spectacular balance. Ripe and present tannins, but where they are harmonized with elegance and freshness. Long and persistent.
Ideal to accompany with gastronomy of strong gustatory power, and that better than to be able to pair it with the same Italian cuisine:
- Stewed in Piedmontese (served with a maximum of 5 types of meat, accompanied by three sauces: green, tomato, and horseradish)
- Vincisgrassi (A more full-bodied lasagna style)
- Chicken in the Cacciatora (typical of the region of Tuscany)
The Guado a Tasso estate is located in the small but prestigious Bolgheri DOC, on the Alta Maremma coast, about one hundred kilometers west of Florence. This denomination has a relatively recent history, DOC Bolgheri was approved in 1995 and since then it has become an internationally recognized point of reference for the Italian and international wine sector. The estate covers an area of 320 hectares (790 acres) planted with vines, nestled on a beautiful plain surrounded by rolling slopes known as the "Bolgheri Amphitheater" because of its particular shape. The vineyards are planted with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Vermentino Nero and Bianco. The nearby sea provides a temperate climate with constant breezes that mitigate the summer heat and alleviate the harsh winter weather,
A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and occasionally a small amount of Petit Verdot to better represent the complexity and elegance of Bolgheri terroir. This wine has been produced since 1990, from vineyards in alluvial soils, where the composition varies from clayey to clayey soils with rocky deposits known as the "scheletro".
