Guado al Tasso was produced for the first time in 1990. It takes its name from a curious fact: at Tenuta Guado al Tasso it often happens to see badgers, very shy animals, crossing the fords of waterways and from this it is his name was resumed. Tenuta Guado al Tasso is about 80 km southwest of Florence, near the medieval town of Bolgheri, in the Alta Maremma.

Guado al Tasso 2013 is a wine of great finesse and elegance. On the palate it is more vibrant and silky than ever. In a basically cool year with such a long maturation, Cabernet Sauvignon (50%) has developed and brought to the wine notes of aromatic herbs, spices, mint and a crunchy tannin with a nice persistent taste. Merlot (27%) brought concentration and consistency to the center of the mouth, with intense and intact notes of plum and small black fruits. The Cabernet Franc (20%), very characterized, has brought elegance both to the nose and in the mouth and intensified the aftertaste with notes of cassis and licorice. Finally, the Petit Verdot (3%) combined very well, emphasizing the spicy component.
