Antinori Il Bruciato Bolgheri Tenuta Guado al Tasso
Il Bruciato 2019 is intensely ruby red in color. Its nose expresses notes of small dark fruit, sweet spices and tobacco. Its well-structured palate is harmonious and very pleasant to drink. Freshfruity notes dominate the finish giving the wine a lush, sweet character.
Primarily Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah with a small percentage of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.
Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate- This popular wine is currently sold out, but because of a shipping mistake I am only able to offer a review now. I have included a preview of the upcoming 2020 vintage to make up for the mistake. The Guado al Tasso 2019 Bolgheri Rosso Il Bruciato boasts generous fruit weight with layers of dark cherry, ripe blackberry, tobacco, spice and baker’s chocolate. The tannins are plush and soft, and ultimately, it is the supple mouthfeel that gives this wine its mass appeal and exceedingly easy-drinking personality.
