Ref: GUAD180
Red  |  Still  |  13.5% ABV

In the 1930s the Tenuta Belvedere estate (later renamed Guado al Tasso) was inherited by Carlotta della Gherardesca Antinori, the mother of Piero  Antinori. It is located in the world famous Bolgheri area (home of many “Supertuscans”) where 300 hectares of vineyards are cultivated, mainly with French red varieties (Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Syrah, Petit Verdot). After the collaboration with Sassicaia ended in 1989, Piero Antinori released the first vintage of Guado al Tasso in 1990: it is now the flagship wine of the estate and one of the most sought after in the area.

Tasting Notes

"The 2018 Guado al Tasso is silky, delicate and exceptionally polished. I can’t remember tasting another Guado like it. Medium in body and gracious, the 2018 offers up a compelling mélange of dark fruit, chocolate, cedar, licorice and dried herbs, all in a mid-weight style that is incredibly appealing. The 2018 has just been bottled, so it needs time to bounce back. I can’t wait to taste it with a bit more time in bottle. 95+/100." Antonio Galloni

Sweetness Explained
Sweetness Explained

Sweetness

All our wines are given a Sweetness Indicator from 1 to 5, with 1 being the driest and 5 being the sweetest.
This can be found for every wine under the Wine Details tab. 

Most red wines are dry and therefore are indicated with a 1. The sweetness becomes more relevant with white wines, sparkling wines and pudding/dessert wines such as Sauternes and Tokaji.
