Antinori Guado al Tasso Il Bruciato 2017
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Bolgheri|
"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."
The 2017 Bolgheri Il Bruciato is pliant, supple and luscious, but what stands out most is how much freshness Antinori was able to keep in this wine. Dark red cherry, plum, spice, new leather and floral notes all meld together in this sumptuous, racy red. This is such a pretty and expressive wine.
Though light-bodied, this is juicy and full of blackberry, boysenberry and vanilla flavors. Leans toward the preserved fruit side, with a spicy finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah. Drink now.
