2018 Antinori Tenuta Guado al Tasso Il Bruciato.
Il Bruciato is the younger brother of the Guado al Tasso, with a more contemporary style. It is grown in vineyards which are high in potential, but not quite prestigious enough to make the Guado al Tasso, although the vineyard management aims at producing the highest possible quality.
The 2016 Bruciato offers an intense ruby red color. On the nose, the aromas of ripe red berry fruit, sweet spices, and a light and fresh minty note are the most prominent sensations. The palate is well structured, persistent, and very pleasurable in its fruity finish and aftertaste.
