Tenuta Guado al Tasso 2014 Il Bruciato, Bolgheri DOC
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 2014 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 Spectator said about this 2014 "A bright, pure version, this red evokes cherry, currant and spice flavors, with well-integrated, if dusty, tannins lining the finish. Firm but has the requisite fruit. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah. Best from 2017 through 2024."
