About Tenuta Guado al Tasso 2016 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 2016 Il Bruciato are sourced from a roughly 200 acre area with varying elevations. A blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 15% Syrah aged 10 months in French oak barrels. The Wine Advocate scored this 2016 93+ saying "This is absolutely one of the best value wines you will find in Italy and I suspect beyond. The 2016 Bolgheri Rosso Il Bruciato is a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 15% Syrah. With more than one million bottles made, there should be no problem finding it at your nearest wine merchant. Once you do locate it, I enthusiastically recommend that you pick up a few cases. This vintage comes together with seamless intensity and smoothness. You get so much dark fruit flavor, paired with soft tannins, spice, smoke and dried blackberry. Il Bruciato pulls off its magic effortlessly. It doesn't try to be anything other than it is: Delicious." and James Suckling scored it 94 saying "This second wine shows such a great balance of round tannins and juicy, creamy and chocolate character. Full, flavorful and joyful. Salty and juicy. Savory and even meaty. Drink now or hold."
