Guado al Tasso – Antinori Bolgheri Superiore – 2012
The Guado al Tasso estate of the Marquises of Antinori is an institution of the DOC Bolgheri, a must for the “super Tuscans”.
Three hundred hectares of vineyards in the Alta Maremma that enjoy an almost unique microclimate producing wines with a distinctly Mediterranean character made of power, elegance and balance.
Each vintage different grapes are used in different percentages of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot with the addition of small percentages of Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Syrah. The aging is in classic Bordeaux style, new barriques for about 14 months.
A combination of aromatic finesse, freshness but also power and complexity.
In short, a unique wine!
