Guado al Tasso was produced for the first time in 1990. It takes its name from a curious phenomenon: at the Guado al Tasso estate it is often possible to spot badgers, normally shy animals, crossing the fords of the streams which run through the property, and this is recalled in its name. 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 18% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot.

Product description

TASTING NOTES A wine of ample aromatic impact with notes of mint, mocha, plums, and spice which follow and fuse with one another in a movement of constant energy and development. On the palate, the tannic texture is exceptionally full and silky. A wine of true profundity, length and elegance.
VINIFICATION The harvest at the Guado al Tasso estate is carried out exclusively by hand, with the grapes picked into small, fifteen kilogram packing cases. The grapes are inspected on two different occasions: first, on the sorting table, only entirely healthy and undamaged grape bunches are selected and then, after destemming, the berries are chosen, one by one, to insure that only perfectly ripe grapes finish in the fermenting tanks. As in every vintage, the crop is fermented vineyard block by vineyard block and parcel by parcel on the basis of the specific characteristics of each single plot. Fermentation and skin contact lasted for 15-20 days and were carried out in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. After the wine was run off its skins, the finest lots went directly into new, 60 gallon French oak barrels where they also were put through a complete malolactic fermentation. Subsequently, after a year of aging, the finest lots were blended together and aged for a further six months in oak before bottling.
