About Tenuta Guado al Tasso 2017 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 vineyard is at an elevation between 145 and 190 feet above sea level on stony, slightly calcareous soils. The grapes for this 2017 Il Bruciato are sourced from a roughly 200 acre area with varying elevations.

The grapes were picked by hand and immediately taken to the cellar for scrupulous hand selection prior to destemming and crushing. A blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 15% Syrah aged 7 months in French oak barrels.

James Suckling scored this 93 points saying "There’s a very fresh array here of thyme, newly picked blackcurrants, iodine, crushed stones and sea salt. The exuberant fruit is matched nicely to fine and elegant tannins, which paint a compact and neat picture on the medium-to full-bodied palate. Drink in 2021."

The Wine Advocate scored this 91 points saying "This is another extremely popular wine that is easily found up and down the Tuscan Coast. This red blend (with the largest part of the blend going to Cabernet Sauvignon) opens to a soft and velvety texture. The 2017 Bolgheri Rosso Il Bruciato offers some noticeable ripeness with black cherry, prune and raisin. But ultimately, the wine shows a good level of freshness because the acidity in the grapes was concentrated (like everything else in this hot vintage) in the year’s smaller berries. Tenuta Guado al Tasso extends over 340 hectares. Because of the hot vintage, only 65,000 cases were made of this wine instead of the 100,000 cases produced in a normal vintage."
