Tenuta Guado al Tasso (Antinori)
Tenuta Guado al Tasso, a jewel in the Maremma
The Tenuta Guado al Tasso winery is located in the small and prestigious DOC Bolgheri, near the coast to the Thyrrenian Mediterranean Sea, in the Maremma, just a hundred kilometres west of Florence. In former times there were 7 castles in this area, 4 of which are still preserved today, and 86 towers for protection from the Saracens, which could have landed about 1000 years ago from the African coast.
Tenuta Guado al Tasso and the heritage of Marchesa Antinori
The Della Gherardesca family has been cultivating wine here since the 17th century. Thanks to the passion for viticulture of Guido Alberto della Gherardesca and the Grand Duke Leopold II of Tuscany, around 1830 special attention was paid to viticulture in his lands. A hundred years later, Carlotta della Gherardesca Antinori, granddaughter and mother of Marchese Piero Antinori, inherited the Tenuta Guado al Tasso estate, while her sister inherited the neighbouring Tenuta San Guido estate and brought it into the family of her husband Mario Incisa della Rocchetta.
Tenuta Guado al Tasso and the Bolgheri DOC
The history of the Bolgheri DOC is relatively recent, it was only established in 1995, but its international reputation makes it an important point of reference in the world of viticulture.
Tenuta Guado al Tasso is situated on a plain at about 50 metres above sea level and extends over 1000 hectares, 320 of which are vineyards, the rest is covered with cereals, sunflowers and olive groves, embedded in the so-called Anfiteatro Bolgherese, which creates ideal climatic conditions. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and the white grape variety Vermentino are cultivated here. The proximity to the sea influences the climate, constant light winds soothe the heat of the summer months and soften the cold of the winter, keep the sky free of clouds and favour sunlight. The soils are mainly alluvial, sandy and loamy with the typical Bolgheri soil structure, which highlights the character and varietal characteristics of the grape varieties.
