How to serve
A territory, that of Guado al Tasso, distinguished by the Bolgheri Amphitheater, a series of hills that enclose the plain overlooking the sea, capable of creating a unique microclimate, with great thermal excursions. The Guado al Tasso vineyards are located at the foot of the Amphitheater and, in the night, the cold air comes down from the hills to cool the rows. These particular climatic conditions give the grapes a marked aroma and guarantee a perfect ripening of the berry.More about the Winery
