Guado al Tasso Il Bruciato 2010

Bolgheri, Tuscany, ItalyThis Bolgheri red is 50/30/20 blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot and syrah with a dash of other grapes. It was a cooler year and while there was plenty of time to ripen you feel some of the coolness on the palate in terms acidity and aromatics. Look for floral notes mixed with red cherries and savoury mint. The attack is full but supple with smoky, spicy, earthy peppery cherry and garrigue flavours. This would benefit from another two three years in bottle or serve now with a classic Bolognese pasta dish.Tasted: 26 August 2013Tasted by: Anthony Gismondi and Stuart TobePrices: BC 40.00 speculative listing - Mark Anthony Brands QC 28.00 ON 30.00 NS 32.00 AB 30.00 fine wine shops Producer: Tenuta Guado al TassoDistributors: Mark Anthony Wines and Spirits
