    Winemaker Notes

    Estate-grown Vermentino, Bolgheri DOC100% Vermentino from vineyards in Tenuta Belvedere near Bolgheri on the Tuscan coast, south of Livorno.This wine has an accentuated personality and results straw gold in colour with intense, fruity aromas. On the palate is full, armonic and with a long finish.The grapes coming from vineyards on the Tenuta Guado al Tasso Estate, were harvested in the early hours of the morning and, in order to give a good structure and aromas, a small quantity were vinified with the "crio-maceration" method (the must remains in contact with skins for almost 6 hours at a temperature of 5°C) and the other quantity were gently pressed. The two parts of must were then cooled down to induce natural clarification. The wine was then racked and the alcoholic fermentation took place at a temperature which was kept below 18°C. The wine obtained is stored in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperature until bottling, in January 2001. The vinification techniques employed have made it possible to enhance aromas and the typical varietal structure. Alcohol: 12,50% Vol.

    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.

    A fantastic, aromatic white grape whose best wines come from a northeastern corner of Sardinia called Gallura. Vermentino di Gallura DOCG, despite its light body, can be decidedly complex. Common flavors associated with this wine include pear, white peach, grapefruit, lime zest, fresh almond and crushed rocks. It is dry but fruity and the finish is snappy and bright. Sardinian producers like to pick early to retain lively acidity but a fuller style has also become popular. In lesser proportions Vermentino grows on the island of Corsica. But it comprises a large proportion of the whites in southern France, namely Provence, where it is called Rolle. Vermentino does well in Tuscany and in Piedmont, where it is called Favorita. It also is thought to be genetically identical to Ligurian’s Pigato grape. As Pigato and Favorita, it does well paired with fresh and simple seafood dishes and light appetizers. Wines with similar characteristics to Vermentino include Sauvignon blanc, Semillon, Albariño and Grüner Veltliner.
