Description

The estate’s flagship wine, the 2005 Guado al Tasso, possesses gorgeous aromatics and a core of vibrant, dark fruit framed by finessed tannins. Medium to full-bodied, it shows superb balance, particularly in the use of French oak, something that I haven’t always been able to say in the past. With air, attractive notes of wild herbs, smoke, minerals and sweet toasted oak develop to complete this very pretty Guado al Tasso. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2019. - WA92

Focused and pretty, with lovely perfumes of berries, mineral and licorice. Full-bodied, with berry, spice and light rosemary flavors. Long and very pretty. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah. Best after 2011. 6,660 cases made. - WS91

This was just bottled a week ago. What an incredible nose of spices, fresh herbs, currants, and minerals. Full bodied and fine, with deliciously dense fruit. I really dig the balance and the freshness in this. This is ready to go, don't wait too long. - JS92

The Winery

OVERVIEW

The Guado al Tasso estate is located near Bolgheri on the Tuscan coast, 96 kilometers (60 miles) to the southwest of Florence. The 300 hectares (750 acres) planted to vineyards on the property are in the center of the so-called” Bolgheri amphitheater”: rolling hillsides which surround a splendid plain which slopes gently towards the sea and create a micro-climate with unique characteristics. Guado al Tasso, the flagship wine of the estate, expresses all of the force and suppleness of this corner of the upper Maremma. It has contributed to raise Bolgheri to the level of the most important areas of Europe’s viticulture, expressing a decisively Mediterranean character of power, elegance, and balance.

HISTORY

1800

The noble della Gherardesca family began to be involved in the production of wine in their Bolgheri holdings as early as the second half of the 17th century. But it was with Guido Alberto della Gherardesca, who lived from 1780 to 1854, that a significant change occured.
