2021 Antinori Bolgheri Vermentino
- Bolgheri Italy
Vermentino from the Guado al Tasso estate is straw yellow in color with greenish highlights. Its nose offers enticing aromatic intensity with notes of citrus fruit, white flower blossoms and tropical fruit. On the palate it’s savory with good persistence of flavors and a fresh and pleasant citrusy finish.
Each vineyard parcel was harvested separately, based on the level of maturity of the grapes aimed at preserving and enhancing the complex territorial characteristics of each individual vineyard block. Upon arrival at the cellars, grapes were destemmed, delicately crushed, and gently pressed. The resulting must was transferred into stainless steel temperature controlled fermentation tanks where alcoholic fermentation took place at a temperature of 16 °C (61 °F). Each individual lot was carefully and systematically evaluated and then blended. Vermentino Tenuta Guado al Tasso was bottled in January 2022.
