Guado al Tasso 2020 is intensely ruby red in colour. The nose offers notes of small dark fruit, sweet spices, toasted
oak, and forest floor. On the palate, tannins are extremely well balanced, refined, and persistent. This wine can be
enjoyed immediately, perhaps even more so than the past vintage, but also has exceptional aging potential, an
extended period of bottle aging allows the wine to evolve and improve over time.

Production Notes

Upon arrival in the cellar, the grapes were sorted on two different occasions, once before destemming and again
immediately after to guarantee that only perfectly ripe berries reached fermentation vats. Keeping with tradition,
each single vineyard parcel was subdivided into smaller blocks and the grapes were harvested separately based on
climate trends and individual characteristics of each grape variety and then fermented separately. Fermentation and
maceration took place in temperature controlled stainless steel vats for 15 - 20 days. After racking operations, the
wine was transferred directly into barriques where malolactic fermentation was completed by the end of the year. In
February, wine from the very best vineyard blocks was selected and the final blend was made. Guado al Tasso was
again transferred into new French oak barriques where it aged up until bottling in the month of June 2022.
