Il Bruciato Bolgheri Antinori
Il Bruciato Bolgheri Antinori Tenuta Guado al Tasso
Bolgheri appellation of origin
The grapes, selected during the harvest, were destemmed upon their arrival in the cellars and given a soft pressing. The crop was fermented at a temperature of 82-86 °Fahrenheit (28-30 °Centigrade) in temperature-controlled, stainless steel fermentation tanks for a period of fifteen-sixteen days. A part of the Merlot and Syrah must be fermented at a lower temperature to better conserve varietal aromas. The malolactic fermentation took place partly in small oak barrels and partly in stainless steel and was terminated by the end of the year in the case of all the varieties. The Cabernet Sauvignon was then blended with the Merlot and Syrah and the wine which was obtained was successively aged in barrique before bottling.
The 2018 Il Bruciato vintage shows an intense ruby red color to the eye. The nose is characterized by notes of ripe red berry fruit and by sweet spices. The palate offers a fine structure, balance, and drinking pleasure. Light sensations of mint and liquor ice add much complexity to the finish and aftertaste.
The Burnt Guado Al Tasso Antinori is the red ideal with tasty pasta dishes with meat sauce, grilled red meats, stews, wild boar or venison, as well as cold cuts and seasoned cheeses.
