Cont’Ugo, Bolgheri - 75cl DOC Tuscany, Tenuta Guado al Tasso

Producer: The Bolgheri DOC, situated near the coast a hundred kilometres southwest of Florence, started out as a rosé-only; whites were permitted in 1984, and ten years later the laws finally recognised the extraordinary success of the mould-breaking Cabernet-based reds. Antinori’s Guado al Tasso estate débuted with the 1990 vintage, and covers 1,000 hectares of land stretching from the hills around the village down to the coast. The vineyard itself comprises 300 hectares, with the remainder planted to wheat, sunflower and olives.
Taste: The nose shows intense notes of plums, cherries, and raspberries in addition to wild berry fruit and spices. The palate is distinguished by its roundness and breadth. A wine of great depth and accessibility, characterized by a finish bursting with fruit.
