This wine could one day surpass Solaia in quality.

The Bolgheri Amphitheater. The Guado al Tasso estate’s most characteristic geographic feature is the Bolgheri Amphitheater, a beautiful plain encircled by rolling hillsides that faces the Tyrrhenian Sea. The shape of the territory creates a unique microclimate with beneficial temperature fluctuations. The estate’s vineyards are located at the foot of the amphitheater, an optimal position as cold nocturnal breezes cool down the vines. These particular climatic conditions give the grapes pronounced aromas and guarantee a perfect ripening of the berries.

"Guado al Tasso 1997, produced near Sassicaia and Ornellaia in Bolgheri, is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot with a dash of Syrah. It has loads of ripe fruit and tannins yet remains wonderfully harmonious and balanced. The vineyard is so superb that this wine could one day surpass Solaia in quality." 96 points, James Suckling, Wine Spectator.
