Guado al Tasso IL Bruciato Italian Tuscan Red Wine 750 mL

$33.99

Wine Advocate 92 points for previous vintage – The Tenuta Guado al Tasso 2018 Bolgheri Rosso Il Bruciato is a steal at this price point. Indeed, this blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah has consistently affirmed its very reputation on the fact that it so effortlessly hits that sweet spot between value and quality year after year. The wine opens to soft, supple fruit with blackberry and blackcurrants backed by spice, leather and tobacco. The aromas are fresh, fruit-forward and very inviting. The sweet succulence of the wine immediately invites a pairing with marinaded or barbecued meats slow-cooked over embers. In terms of mouthfeel, Il Bruciato is designed to be approachable and most importantly: food friendly. You can’t go wrong here. I notice that the integration of fruit is particularly well-managed in this cooler vintage. Some 850,000 bottles were released..June/2020

Antinori has made terrific wines at their Guado al Tasso property for years. Even so, I was completely blown away by what I sampled in two recent tastings. The move towards a bit more finesse and less blowsiness in the wines is incredibly apparent. Leaving more foliage in the field and picking a bit earlier are some of the choices there are beginning to yield wines that offer notable freshness while still capturing all of the radiance that makes Bolgheri such a special place to grow grapes and make wine.
