Il Bruciato Bolgheri DOC, Tenuta Guado Al Taso, Marchesi Antinori

Tenuta Guado Al Tasso
Product Code: AI1621RF

Tasting Notes

The 2016 Bruciato offers an intense ruby red color. On the nose, the aromas of ripe red berry fruit, sweet spices, and a light and fresh minty note are the most prominent sensations. The palate is well structured, persistent, and very pleasurable in its fruity finish and aftertaste.

            [Notes2] => The Guado al Tasso estate is located some 50 miles (80 kilometers) to the southwest of the city of
Florence near the medieval hamlet of Bolgheri. The property, approximately 2500 acres (1000
kilometers) in total size, extends from the Tyrrhenian Sea to t
            [Notes3] => 
            [Notes4] => The 2016 vintage was characterized by a mild winter with
infrequent but abundant rainfall which assisted in creating
important reserves of ground water in the soil. The
beginning of the growing season arrived a bit earlier than
usual and then continued in a regular fashion,
accompanied by a sunny spring with temperatures and
rainfall which fully respected normal seasonal averages.
Summer was, on the whole, warm and without particular
temperature peaks. The ripening of the grapes took place
in weather marked by generally warm and sunny days,
followed by cool nights which favored the development of
aromatic substances and a proper rapport between sugars
and acidity. Picking took place between late August and
late September.
            [MediaNotes] => 
            [ServingSuggestion] => 
            [WineMakingNotes] => Once in the cellar, the selected grapes were gently destemmed and softly pressed. The
fermentation and the period of skin contact with the must took place in temperature controlled
stainless steel tanks and lasted for a period of 10-15 days at temperatures which ranged from 82°
to 86° Fahrenheit (28-30° centigrade). The malolactic fermentation took place partly in oak barrels
and partly in stainless steel tanks and terminated in both cases by the end of the year. At this point
the Cabernet Sauvignon was blended together with the Merlot and Syrah and the wine went back
into the small oak barrels, where it remained for an additional seven months before being bottled.
The 2016 Il Bruciato was given four months of bottle aging before commercial release

reflected in the great wines produced in this terroir. Guado al Tasso is the prestigious flagship wine of this estate and fully expresses this unique terroir in all its structure, elegance and complexity.
                    [Notes2] => Bolgheri, the prestigious small appellation in which Guado al Tasso is located, was famous for its rosé wines until the 1970’s; for this wine , and for white wines as well, it received appellation status in 1984, which was then extended to the red wines of the area in 1994. The zone in any case, is known and prized for its exceptional red wines, its so-called “Super Tuscans”. with this important richness and with the elevated quality of its wines, Bolgheri has become one of the new capitals of world oenology

                    [Notes3] => The overall surface area of the estate is over 1000 hectares (2500 acres), 300 of which (750 acres) are planted to vines; there are, in addition, woods, known as the Macchia del Bruciato, where Cinta Senese pigs, a prized Tuscan breed, and other animals are allowed to graze in the wild. The vineyards – 45-65 meters above sea level on soils of various composition – are planted to Vermentino, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Petit Verdot along with small quantities of other grape varieties.
 Thanks to a mild climate created by the nearby
 presence of the sea and the constant breezes which mitigate the extremes of summer heat and winter cold, sweep the sky clean of clouds and cover, and accordingly increase the amount and intensity of sunlight, the harvest here normally commences at the end of August, two weeks earlier than the more inland zones of Tuscany. An ideal climate as well for the small greenhouse where the different varieties of young vines to be planted are grown and then utilized in the other Antinori estates in Tuscany and Umbria.

The vineyards – 45-65 meters above sea level on soils of various composition – are planted to Vermentino, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Petit Verdot along with small quantities of other grape varieties.
 Thanks to a mild climate created by the nearby
 presence of the sea and the constant breezes which mitigate the extremes of summer heat and winter cold, sweep the sky clean of clouds and cover, and accordingly increase the amount and intensity of sunlight, the harvest here normally commences at the end of August, two weeks earlier than the more inland zones of Tuscany. An ideal climate as well for the small greenhouse where the different varieties of young vines to be planted are grown and then utilized in the other Antinori estates in Tuscany and Umbria.

300 ha of vineyards are located at the centre of the so called ‘Bolgheri amphitheatre’ – gentle hills surrounding a magnificent plain, rolling down to the sea. The amphitheatre has a micro climate with unique features reflected in the great wines produced in this terroir. Guado al Tasso is the prestigious flagship wine of this estate and fully expresses this unique terroir in all its structure, elegance and complexity.

Viticulture >

The Guado al Tasso estate is located some 50 miles (80 kilometers) to the southwest of the city of Florence near the medieval hamlet of Bolgheri. The property, approximately 2500 acres (1000 kilometers) in total size, extends from the Tyrrhenian Sea to t

Winemaking >

Once in the cellar, the selected grapes were gently destemmed and softly pressed. The fermentation and the period of skin contact with the must took place in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks and lasted for a period of 10-15 days at temperatures which ranged from 82° to 86° Fahrenheit (28-30° centigrade). The malolactic fermentation took place partly in oak barrels and partly in stainless steel tanks and terminated in both cases by the end of the year. At this point the Cabernet Sauvignon was blended together with the Merlot and Syrah and the wine went back into the small oak barrels, where it remained for an additional seven months before being bottled. The 2016 Il Bruciato was given four months of bottle aging before commercial release
