PRODUCER
The Bolgheri DOC, situated near the coast a hundred kilometres south- west of Florence, started out as a rosé-only; whites were permitted in 1984, and ten years later the laws finally recognised the extraordinary success of the mould-breaking Cabernet-based reds. Antinori’s Guado al Tasso estate débuted with the 1990 vintage, and covers 1000 hectares of land stretching from the hills around the village down to the coast. The vineyard itself comprises 300 hectares, with the remainder planted to wheat, sunflower and olives.

VINEYARD
Three grape varieties, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and a touch of Syrah, produce a rosé with decisive and intense aromas that reflect the characteristics of Bolgheri’s territory. The wine and vineyard take their name from a bandit named Scalabrone who roamed this area in the 18th century. Vineyards thrive on clay-loam based soils, mainly of alluvial origin, with rocky deposits.
The grapes for this rosé come from a specific site, named Scalabrone, within the Guado al Tasso estate. The vineyards lie at 45-60 metres above sea level, on rocky limestone soil. Cuttings were supplied by the on-site nursery.

WINERY
The grapes were destemmed and soft-crushed straight after the harvest, and then macerated in the press at around 10oC for four to six hours, depending on the grape variety. The pressing then continued, and the various fractions of juice obtained were cold-settled for twenty-four hours. Fermentation took place in stainless steel vats at a temperature no higher than 16oC. A month later, a selection of the best lots was made, and these lots assembled into the final blend.
