Friday night and I have opened the 2016 Marchesi Antinori IL Bruciato Tenuta Guado Al Tasso Super Tuscan Blend. 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 15% Syrah.

On the nose is black cherry, black raspberry, blackberry, black currant, chocolate, a distinct savory quality, lilac and oak.

On the palate are dark fruits, black cherry, blackberry, black currant, licorice, tar, sweet oak, bell pepper, graphite, black pepper, savory notes and earth.

This wine is big, bold and full bodied with medium + to high acidity and medium + to high grippy sandy tannins that leads to a long dark fruit and earthy finish. Another weekend has arrived and let's treat the weekend with respect and be safe. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

We ordered this excellent SuperTuscan as a food wine, but ended up drinking the entire bottle with the appetizers. It is so well balanced for food that it rivals a high end Sangiovese. It has the currant fruits and solid tannic structure of a Bordeaux, coupled with bright cherry and blueberry flavors from the Sangiovese component. Bellissimo! 😺🍷

Another Italian wine that has proven to be enjoyable although not highly memorable. Yes, it had dark berries on the nose and palate but had a short finish.
