PRODUCT INFORMATION

A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and occasionally a small amount of Petit Verdot to best
represent the complex and elegant terroir found in Bolgheri. This wine has been produced since 1990 from
vineyards on alluvial soils whose composition ranges from clay-sand to clay-loam with rocky deposits known as
“scheletro”.

Vinification
The crop was handpicked into small packing cases. In the cellar, the grapes were manually selected both before and
after destemming and then softly pressed. Each single vineyard plot was fermented separately in order to obtain a
full range of wines. The fermentation took place in stainless steel tank sat temperatures between 77° and 86°
Fahrenheit (25°-30° centigrade). All the wines went immediately into new French oak barrels where they went
through a complete malolactic fermentation by the end of the year. After a year of aging, the finest lots were
selected and blended and then went back into barrel for an additional six months of aging. A year in bottle preceded
the release.

Tasting Notes
Guado al Tasso is a wine of great elegance and finesse, silkier and more vibrant than ever. In a cool vintage, one with a very long growing season, the Cabernet Sauvignon (55%) brought notes of aromatic herbs and mint along with crisp tannins which added length. The Merlot (25%) gave concentration and texture and ample sensations of plums and blackberries. The characterful Cabernet Franc (18%) contributed aromatic and flavor elegance, intensifying the finish and aftertaste with notes of licorice and cassis. And, finally, the Petit Verdot (2%) combined very well with other varieties, underlining the wine’s spiciness.
