Guado al Tasso Cont'Ugo 2016

The Guado al Tasso Cont’Ugo is produced exclusively from Merlot grapes in order to interpret the territory of Bolgheri from a new perspective. The vineyards, situated at an altitude between 150 and 200 feet (45-60 meters) above sea level on clayey loam soils prevalently of alluvial origin, give Cont’Ugo great depth and complexity while conserving the fragrance and richness of fruit which are typical of the Merlot grape. Conte Ugo is an intense ruby red in colour. The nose offers notes of red fruits such as cherries and raspberries along with aromas of sweet spices and Mediterranean brush. The palate is strikingly supple in the texture of its tannins. A vintage of great length, balance and drinking pleasure.
