Vermentino di Bolgheri, Guado al Tasso, Tuscany, Italy 2021
Regular price £22.35
Guado al Tasso
The Bolgheri DOC, situated near the coast a hundred kilometres south-west 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.
