Antinori (Guado Tasso), Bolgheri, Cont’Ugo 2013

Antinori (Guado Tasso)

Case Format: 6x75cl

There can be no more iconic name in the Tuscan wine world than that of Antinori: the family has been involved in the production of wine for more than six centuries spanning twenty-six generations. Today the firm is run by Marquis Piero Antinori with the support of his three daugthers, Albiera, Allegra, and Alessia, all directly involved in the work of the house. They are today one of the biggest wine companies in Italy, and their innovations played a large part in the “Super-Tuscan” revolution of the 1970s. Tignanello, one of the earliest of those Super-Tuscans, debuted in 1971; it was the first modern wine of Chianti to contain a nontraditional grape—Cabernet Sauvignon—while omitting white grapes, and the premiere wine to be aged in small barrels.

Exclusively Merlot grapes to interpret the Bolgheri territory according to a new perspective. The vineyards, located at an altitude between 45 and 60 meters a.s.l. on silty-clayey soils of predominantly alluvial origin, give the Cont’Ugo great depth and complexity while preserving the fragrance and exuberance of the fruit typical of Merlot.

The 2013 Bolgheri Rosso ContUgo is an easy-drinking expression of Merlot with bright berry and cherry aromas that emerge first from the bouquet. On second nose, the wine shows spice and dried tobacco leaf. All said and done, this is a fantastic wine to pair with oven-roasted pasta or grilled meat dishes.
