Guado al Tasso Il Bruciato 2016

Bolgheri, Tuscany, ItalyBruciato 2016 is more vertical, led by a very spicy syrah component. The fruit was picked between late August and late September and went through a short 10 to 15-day ferment and maceration before heading to stainless steel and barrels for the cabernet sauvignon, merlot and syrah. These components are blended at the end of the year and further aged in oak for seven months, then bottle for four months. The 2016 comes with more red fruit and those savoury salty notes that the winemaking team is pursuing. Almost the polar opposite of the blockbuster 2015. I welcome more finesse and expect with a new dedicated winery facility ready to go in 2018 the movement will continue. Drink or hold through 2022.Tasted: 07 November 2018Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: 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
