Natalie's Score: 91/100

A full-bodied and concentrated Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah red wine blend. Supple with ripe blackberry, currant, dried tobacco leaf, savoury herb, meaty and spicy flavours on the palate. Consistently great quality and great value on the very approachable Super Tuscan. Pair with saucy barbecued ribs.

Food pairings: grilled hanger steak, Porchetta, meat and pasta dishes.

Gréât value
Produced by Antinori, Guado al Tasso Il Bruciato 2018 is a Cabernet-Sauvignon driven red wine blend with wine grapes sourced from several vineyards in the Bogheri. Fermentation was in temperature-controlled stainless-steel tanks for 10 to 15 days to retain grape aromas and fresh flavours. Malolactic fermentation took place partly in oak barrels and partly in stainless steel tanks. The wine was racked and matured in small oak barrels for seven months prior to bottling. - Community Wine Reviews
