Guado al Tasso, meaning literally "Badger's Ford," takes its name from a common sight at the estate of Tenuta Guado al Tasso, Bolgheri, where it is produced. The estate is located approximately 50 miles southwest of Florence, near the medieval town of Bolgheri. The 2,500-acre estate stretches up from the shore of the Tyrrhenian Sea to the hills, in the heart of Bolgheri amphitheater. The vineyard is at an elevation between 145 and 190 feet above sea level on stony, slightly calcareous soils. The name Il Bruciato means "burned." This wine is named after a wooded area on the Guado al Tasso estate that was destroyed by a famous fire in the early 1900s.
