Guado al Tasso was produced for the first time in 1990. It takes its name from a curious phenomenon: at the Guado al Tasso estate it is often possible to spot badgers, normally shy animals, crossing the fords of the streams which run through the property, and this is recalled in its name. The Guado al Tasso estate is located approximately 50 miles (80 kilometers) to the southwest of the city of Florence, near the medieval hamlet of Bolgheri in the Upper Maremma. The 2500 acre (1000 hectare) property extends from the coast of the Tyrrhenian Sea to the inland hills, where the vineyards are cultivated on rocky and slightly calcareous soils. 

2012 Guado al Tasso is a wine of ample aromatic impact with notes of mint, mocha, plums, and spice which follow and fuse with one another in a movement of constant energy and development. On the palate, the tannic texture is exceptionally full and silky. A wine of true profundity, length and elegance. 
95 pts - Antonio Galloni
The 2012 Bolgheri Superiore Guado al Tasso is one of the very best wines in the Antinori range. Dark, sumptuous and wonderfully expressive, the 2012 graces the palate with exceptional finesse. Mocha, espresso, plum, black cherries, smoke and menthol blossom on the rich, expansive finish. There is plenty of Bolgheri immediacy, but the growing season, which was about 20 days longer than normal, helped give the wine an extra dimension of balance. I continue to be impressed with the work the Antinori family has done at Guado al Tasso, where the flagship wine has improved considerably over the last few years.
