Review

Tenuta Guado al Tasso is a winery located in the Bolgheri denomination, in the same part as some of Italy's most renowned wineries and the cypress trees of the Viale dei Cipressi, the avenue which the Nobel Prize winner Giosuè Carducci immortalised in his poems. Here the winery possesses about 300 ha of vineyards which extend from the Tyrrhenian Sea coast right up to the hills.

Il Bruciato is the younger sibling of Guado al Tasso, the company's emblematic wine, and in comparison it shows greater immediacy and liveliness. It's made from a selection of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah grapes originating from the winery's vineyards, with management in the expert hands of the Antinori family and under rigorous quality standards.

Once in the winery, the Cabernet Sauvignon, the coupage's predominant variety, ferments for roughly two weeks at 30 degrees, whereas the Merlot and Syrah do so at a lower temperature in order to keep their varietal aromas unchanged. After fermentation, the wine will undergo 8 months of ageing in barrel, followed by another 4 months of refinement in bottle before being released onto the market.

Appearing a dark ruby colour, Il Bruciano offers an expressive bouquet that reveals notes of forest fruits, flowers, terracotta, leather, tobacco and sweet spices. On the palate, its outstanding features are its coherence, its balance and the slight harshness of its tannins, which provides the earthy touches which we'd been able to discern on the nose. It ends with a long finish exhibiting pleasant fruity touches.

Excellent vin

Excellent vin, corsé et avec une belle longueur, parfait pour accompagner des mets un peu relevés. Mérite son prix.
