Deep purplish red. Lovely, dark and rich nose with dark cocoa, dark cherries, mocha, dark spices and some black fruits too. Medium tannins (6/10) and rounded. Dark fruits on the palate with balanced acidity and pleasant earthiness. Medium plus finish. Drink till 2022.


Need to try warmer next time.

2013 vintage. Light ruby rim with a deep dark core. The nose is jammy like zinfandel wishes it could be, with savory herb and prosciutto notes backing it up. It's actually a rather delicate nose that belies the tannins you get on the palate. Black fruits for sure, those savory meats shine as well and finish with quite a bit of black pepper. Just a wonderful, wonderful Super Tuscan you can find at shops for under $30. Well f'n done.

Il Bruciato means "the burnt one" in English, and she shows black cherry cola, charcoal, and chalk out of the bottle with an assertive attack and med/med+ body; after 30 minutes, she settles down a bit, gets smoother, showing off a rounder red fruit profile along with the black. Despite the toasted oak on the nose, the roasted flavor never integrated into the palate, so the wine never really crosses into complex territory, but has lovely balance. Paired exceptionally well with penne bolognese.

Аромат молодой, сливочно-ягодный, насыщенный вишневый компот, малина, ежевика. Вкус насыщенный, с заметным присутствием дуба, несколько суховатыми танинами. 15.5/20 (87/100)

The second wine from House Antinori Guado Al Tasso. Well structured on the mid palate and a nice, long-ish finish that displays nice balance and dark fruit/chocolate overtones. Deep garnet color and this baby has legs! Ladies and gentlemen; try this one if the older brother isn’t at hand. You won’t be disappointed. Cheers!

Excellent juice. Deep extraction. Unctuous nose. On the palete, the tannins are ripe, yet plush. Finishes with ripe cherries and sweet black fruits. A wine for the discerning masses. At $15 per - unbeatable!
I think this is their 3rd wine, incredible quality.
