2021 Marchesi Antinori Tenuta Guado al Tasso Il Bruciato Bolgheri Tuscany, Italy
Il Bruciato 2021 is intensely ruby red in color. The nose offers notes of small ripe red fruit, sweet spices, and tobacco. The palate has excellent structure, is remarkably mouth filling with a pleasant fruity aftertaste that imparts good persistence and easy drinkability.
Press from previous vintage
Rated 93 Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
I tasted the Guado al Tasso 2020 Bolgheri Rosso Il Bruciato from barrel, but the wine will hit the market in September of this year. Compared to the previous vintage, this edition is richer and slightly denser with nicely concentrated fruit. That extra textural support is a characteristic of this fortunate vintage. This accessible blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah offers tight mineral notes, toasted spice, almond and lots of dark, luscious fruit. To the palate, the wine exhibits softly caressing tannins
Rated 93 Points James Suckling
Aromas of sage and currants with blackberries follow through to a full body with intense,round tannins that are nicely crafted. Fresh, flavorful finish. Some dried herbs at the end with a slightly grilled-meat undertone. Drinkable now, but better in two or three years.
