Tenuta Guado al Tasso (Antinori) Bolgheri Il Bruciato 2011 D.O.C. Red Wine, $19.54-$26.99, 91 points, appeared deep ruby trending crushed blackberry and slightly orange at the transparent rim.
Toasty black cherry and vanilla on the nose were rich and pleasant, but subtle black currant and cedar added complexity.
The medium-plus body carried very good acidity and powerful, but manageable tannin.
Flavors faithfully followed the aroma.
Finished long on the trailing palate with tart pomegranate, spice, coffee, tobacco, and a well integrated 14% alcohol.
Varietals were 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, and 15% Syrah.
