2016 Guado al Tasso 'Il Bruciato' Toscana IGT

$27.95
WA93+

This is absolutely one of the best value wines you will find in Italy and I suspect beyond. The 2016 Bolgheri Rosso Il Bruciato is a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 15% Syrah. Once you do locate it, I enthusiastically recommend that you pick up a few cases. This vintage comes together with seamless intensity and smoothness. You get so much dark fruit flavor, paired with soft tannins, spice, smoke and dried blackberry. Il Bruciato pulls off its magic effortlessly. It doesn't try to be anything other than it is: Delicious.” – The Wine Advocate

It’s hard to argue with multiple third-party endorsements like this one. The Antinoris’ Guado al Tasso estate in Bolgheri knocked it out of the park with this luxuriant Cabernet blend in 2016.

Is there any better way to unplug and enjoy the bounty than to put a pork shoulder, a head of garlic, a bottle of red wine, and a rosemary branch in a 250° oven on a Sunday morning and uncork a bottle of this Bolgheri red to enjoy with the indulgent, tender roast in the evening? We can’t think of one either. Bellissima.
