TASTING NOTES

Mistakenly considered the younger brother of Guado al Tasso, Bruciato is one of Marchesi Antinori's signature wines. This is one of the most appreciated and best known Bolgheri in the world, born out of the happy union of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah grown on vines that in the Bolgheri area achieve the highest qualities. Bolgheri Cont'Ugo is made from 100% Merlot grapes typical of Bolgheri, which undergo alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel and ageing for 12 months in barriques. Rich in fruit and softness, this wine displays a ruby-garnet red colour in the glass with pleasant notes of blackberry, jam and vanilla, and slightly vegetable hints on the palate. A wine that can be drunk every day. Be sure to pair it with red meat dishes of medium structure. Read more Read less
THE WINERY

Guado al Tasso

Belonging to the historic and renowned Marchesi Antinori wine family, the Guado al Tasso winery enjoys an excellent international reputation despite only being established in 1994. Situated in the Upper Maremma Tuscany, in the area of Bolgheri, it covers about 320 hectares, set in the beautiful setting of the so-called “Bolgherese amphitheatre”, a plain surrounded by wooded hills stretching down to the sea. It is the particularity of this setting that provides a unique microclimate to the vineyards cultivated here. The usual temperature fluctuations to which they are exposed guarantee that the grapes have a strong aromatic flavour and perfect maturation. In fact, compared to the other Antinori estates, such as the majestic Castello della Sala, at the Guado al Tasso winery the harvest is usually carried out at the end of August, rather than in September. Soils of heterogeneous composition, composed of clay, sand, silt or pebbles, are home to both French red grapes from which prestigious red wines, such as Cabernet Sauvignon, are produced, and to vines from which remarkable white wines and roses are produced. Name and address of producer/distributor: Guado al Tasso - Loc. Scalabrone 57022 Bolgheri LI. Products from this winery should be stored in a cool, dry place away from heat sources.
