The domain Tenuta Guado al Tasso is located near Bolgheri, in the Maremma on the Tuscan coast. The Scalabrone is the top rosé from Bolgheri, from the Guado al Tasso estate of Antinori. This area was traditionally known for its rosés and Antinori manages to produce great rosé again here and as with the wines of Tenuta Guado al Tasso, Antinori uses the grapes and aging they believe are the best and this Scalabrone is therefore a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah and with this this is actually a Supertuscan Rosé

The Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah grapes are carefully destemmed, crushed and pressed after a short soaking. After pressing, the alcoholic fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks. The different parts of the wine are then evaluated and then blended and bottled

In the glass, the Scalabrone is clear with a pink color. Frivolous and charming, with a refreshing scent of red fruits, especially cherries and raspberries, flowers and aromatic herbs. Full of character with many fruity accents. The good balance is rounded off by a lingering finish with pleasant fruit.

The Great Hammersma: 8.5
Super-Tuscan rosé from the endless stables of the Antinori family. Italian fruitiness pressed from the French-speaking cabernet sauvignon, merlot and syrah. Beautiful combination of elegance and structure. Firmly in the shoes red berry fruit that can not be messed with.

The estate Guado al Tasso is located in the small but prestigious Bolgheri appellation on the coast of Tuscany.
Upper Maremma, about 100 kilometers southwest of the city of Florence. The region boasts a worldwide reputation as a reference point for international high-end wines such as Sassicaia, Ornellaia and of course Guado al Tasso. The vineyards of Guado al Tasso are mainly made up of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Vermentino grapes; the latter cultivated with both white and red varieties. They enjoy a mild climate thanks to the proximity of the Mediterranean Sea, the constant breeze softens the summer heat and the rigors of winter clean the air and provide a high degree of sunlight and radiation.

The name Antinori is a household name in the wine world. Wherever you go in a little restaurant in the world, the wines of Antinori show off on the menu. And that is not easy! 600 years of experience precede, as many as 26 generations of wine know-how. Investments have been made carefully in domains and vineyards. And guaranteed in the best locations. Marquis Piero Antinori is in charge and is assisted by his three daughters: Albiera, Allegra and Alessia. Funny those three A's. We are not going to bother you with all the awards that have been received over the years, because then this price list can no longer go through the letterbox. There are two red wines that are available on allocation and that one would like to get a few bottles from all over the world and that are Tignanello and Solaia and we also have these in our range at Grandcruwijnen.

In 1180, Ugo and Antinori di Rinuccino were officially named as owners of Castello di Combiate; a century later, the family who had moved to Florence were included in the register of the silk trade cooperative. In 1385, Giovanni di Piero, an indirect descendant, entered the wine guild as an apprentice. Since then, the wine-growing tradition of the Antinori family has been continuous. With the establishment of the Marchesi Antinori winery, the peak was reached in 1895 and already in 1898 the winery was built in San Casciano Val di Pesa, which is still the center of the widely branched group of properties in all major cultivation areas of Tuscany, Umbria. , Piemonte (since the early 90s through the purchase of the wine cellar Prunotto), Apulia and even California. The traditional house participating in the modern Tuscan wine-growing revolution owes much of its prestige to its former chief vinologist Giacomo Tachis, who produced exceptional wines such as Sassicaia, Tignanello (especially sangiovese), Solaia (especially cabernet) and many others. the other was responsible. Vinologist Renzo Cotarella also created one of the best chardonnays in Italy in the Umbrian Castello della Sala.
