Vinification of the Guado al Tasso Bolgheri Superiore from Guado al Tasso

The basis for the balanced Guado al Tasso Bolgheri Superiore from Tuscany are grapes from the Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot varieties. The grapes grow close to the sea in Tuscany. Here, the vines dig their roots deep into soils of sand and loess. Due to the moderating influence of the nearby sea, the grapes ripen more slowly and develop more aromatic complexity. The Guado al Tasso Bolgheri Superiore is an Old World wine through and through, as this Italian wine exudes an extraordinary European charm that clearly underlines the success of wines from the Old World. The fact that the Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes thrive in a warm climate also has a major influence on the ripeness of the grapes. Among other things, this results in particularly well-ripened grapes and a rather high alcohol content in the wine. The grapes for the Guado al Tasso Bolgheri Superiore are harvested exclusively by hand at optimum ripeness, without the help of coarse and less selective grape harvesters. After the harvest, the grapes are transported to the winery as quickly as possible. Here they are selected and carefully broken up. Fermentation then takes place in small wooden vats at controlled temperatures. At the end of fermentation, the Guado al Tasso Bolgheri Superiore is aged for 28 months in barriques and new French oak. The ageing in wooden barrels is followed by a long maturation in the bottle, which makes this red wine even more complex.
