Winemaker Notes

A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and occasionally a small amount of Petit Verdot to best represent the complexity and elegance of the Bolgheri terroir. This wine has been produced since 1990 from vineyards on alluvial soils whose composition ranges from clay-sand to clay-loam with rocky deposits know as "scheletro".

The 2015 Guado al Tasso is characterized by a rich and complex bouquet of roasted coffee and leather along with pleasing notes of ripe berry fruit. The palate is vibrant, fresh and savory with fine-grained tannins. The finish is complete and persistent withspice and fruit notes. 2015 is a vintage with great aging potential.

Blend: 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot, 18% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot.

Critical Acclaim

JS 97
James Suckling
So much blue fruit such as blueberries and blackberries; the purity of the fruit is incredible. Essence of cabernet sauvignon. Full-bodied yet with focused and fine tannins. Forceful but focused and polished. Needs two or three years to come around. And then enjoy for years afterwards.
RP 97
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2015 Bolgheri Superiore Guado Al Tasso is another star performer from a vintage that was tailor-made by some higher being specifically for the blended red wines of Tuscany. This mix of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 18% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot slides seamlessly right in there with our highest expectations of the iconic vintage. The wine offers beautiful intensity and purity, yet it also delivers balanced power and lasting persistence. This is a baritone expression from Bolgheri on the Tuscan coast with impenetrable black fruit, chocolate and tobacco followed by rich concentration and tightly knit texture. I tasted this wine next to a barrel sample of the unfinished 2016 vintage. This vintage appears more exuberant and opulent at this early stage.
WS 95
Wine Spectator
A thick, muscular red, featuring black currant, blackberry, licorice, mint, earth and leather aromas and flavors. Dense and builds to a lingering aftertaste, yet needs time to unpack all its facets. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Best from 2022 through 2035.
WE 94
Wine Enthusiast
A blend of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot, 18% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot, this fragrant red opens with enticing scents of black-skinned berry, bell pepper, graphite and pipe tobacco. The concentrated but elegantly structured palate delivers layers of black currant jam, ripe plum, star anise and a touch of mocha alongside firm, fine-grained tannins. Drink 2020–2030.
W&S 94
Wine & Spirits
The components for this wine (cabernet sauvignon, merlot, cabernet franc and a touch of petit verdot) aged for one year in new French oak barriques, developing polished tannins and notes of sweet spice that heighten the primary flavors of plum, blackberry and cassis. The wine takes on layers of tobacco and graphite as it sits in the glass, maintaining freshness and precision.

Tenuta Guado al Tasso Winery Image


The Guado al Tasso Estate is located in the prestigious Bolgheri DOC, part of the Tuscan coastal area of Maremma, known for its untamed landscape and unspoiled beauty. Just 60 miles southwest of Florence, it sits on a magnificent plain in the heart of the Bolgheri amphitheater, a natural phenomenon created by hills that embrace the sea and produce a mild and temperate microclimate. Blessed with ample sunshine and constant breezes that take the edge off the summer heat and winter cold, Guado al Tasso is the ideal environment for cultivating healthy vine growth and proper ripening of the estate’s grapes. Inherited from Carlotta della Gherardesca, and revolutionized by Niccoló Antinori, the mother and father of Piero Antinori, Guado al Tasso is a reference point property in the life and history of the family. Here the challenge is to create wines of absolute excellence, always representative of the Bolgheri history, culture, and winemaking traditions.

An outstanding wine region made famous by Marchese Mario Incisa della Rocchetta, who planted Cabernet Sauvignon vines for his own consumption in 1940s on his San Guido estate, and called the resulting wine, Sassicaia. Today the region’s Tuscan reds are based on Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, which can be made as single varietal wines or blends. The local Sangiovese can make up no more than 50% of the blends. Today Sassicaia has its own DOC designation within the Bogheri DOC appellation.

One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, the best of these are densely hued, fragrant, full of fruit and boast a structure that begs for cellar time. Somm Secret—Blends from Bordeaux are generally earthier compared to those from the New World, which tend to be fruit-dominant.
