Guado al Tasso Cont'Ugo 2020
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. Cont’Ugo 2017 is intense ruby red in colour. The nose is imbued by notes of such ripe red fruit as raspberries and cherries along with sensations of sweet spices. On the palate, the firm tannic texture, silky and flowing, is well supported by a pleasurable freshness. A vintage of great length, balance and drinking pleasure.
