Located in the prestigious Bolgheri DOC region, Guado Al Tasso covers an area of more than 1,000 hectares, 320 hectares of which are vineyards, wheat, sunflowers and olive trees.Located on a beautiful plain surrounded by rolling hillsides, the winery is known locally as Bolgheri Amphitheatre.This shape creates a unique microclimate that helps increase the temperature difference between day and night, giving the fruit a more pronounced aroma and ensuring perfect berry ripeness.The vineyards are planted with Cabernet sauvignon, Merlot, syrah, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Vermontino.The Mediterranean climate provides sunny, dry summers and mild, wet winters, as well as plenty of light.Local alluvial soils are rich in sandy clays, silty clays and rocky sediments, which can influence the personality of grape varieties and give them their unique terroir characteristics.DG, on the label, is a tribute to Della Gherardesca, the pioneer of this land.Carlotta Della Gherardesca was the wife of Niccolo Antinori, the 24th generation head of the Antoninori family, and both The Old Way Quest and Sishgaya were part of her dowry.Della Gherardesca’s family has been involved in viticulture in Bulgari since the end of the 17th century. The brand’s DG logo is a tribute to Della Gherardesca’s family.Rating: 97/Robert Parker Trail explore Italian wines
