Tenuta Guado Al Tasso 2013 Il Bruciato, Bolgheri DOC
Item Number: 29 30 193 13
From Antinori's celebrated Bolgheri estate Tenuta Guado Al Tasso on the coast of Tuscany. The estate has 750 acres of vines in this sun-drenched region that is tempered by the cooling effects of the Mediterranean Sea breezes. The grapes for this 2012 Il Bruciato are sourced from a roughly 200 acre area with varying elevations. A blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 15% Syrah aged 10 months in French oak barrels. Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored it 90 points saying "This bright red opens with aromas of red berry, blue flower and a whiff of baking spice. A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah, the linear palate offers juicy black cherry, clove, vanilla and coffee alongside assertive yet fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity. A licorice note signals the close."
