The Bolgheri DOC, situated near the coast eighty kilometres south-west of Florence, started out as rosso-only; whites were permitted in 1984, and ten years later the laws finally recognised the extraordinary success of the mouldbreaking Cabernet-based reds such as Sassicaia. Guado al Tasso debuted with the 1990, and demonstrates the quality of Merlot and Syrah as blending partners for the region's Cabernet with a wine of real lushness and verve.
