Tasting Notes:

Though light-bodied, this is juicy and full of blackberry, boysenberry and vanilla flavors. Leans toward the preserved fruit side, with a spicy finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah. Drink now. 23,500 cases imported.

Tasting Notes:

This is another extremely popular wine that is easily found up and down the Tuscan Coast. This red blend (with the largest part of the blend going to Cabernet Sauvignon) opens to a soft and velvety texture. The 2017 Bolgheri Rosso Il Bruciato offers some noticeable ripeness with black cherry, prune and raisin. But ultimately, the wine shows a good level of freshness because the acidity in the grapes was concentrated (like everything else in this hot vintage) in the year’s smaller berries. Tenuta Guado al Tasso extends over 340 hectares. Because of the hot vintage, only 65,000 cases were made of this wine instead of the 100,000 cases produced in a normal vintage.

Tasting Notes:

There’s a very fresh array here of thyme, newly picked blackcurrants, iodine, crushed stones and sea salt. The exuberant fruit is matched nicely to fine and elegant tannins, which paint a compact and neat picture on the medium-to full-bodied palate. Drink from 2021.

description Producer information Professional reviews

The Antinori family has dedicated itself to wine production for more than six hundred years: since, in 1385, Giovanni di Piero Antinori became part of the Arte Fiorentina dei Vinattieri. Throughout its long history, through 26 generations, the family has always directly managed this activity with innovative and sometimes courageous choices, but always maintaining the respect for the traditions and the territory. Today the company is chaired by Albiera Antinori, with the support of the two sisters Allegra and Alessia, personally involved in the company activities. The Marquis Piero Antinori is currently the Honorary President of the company. Tradition, passion and intuition were the driving qualities that led the Marquises Antinori to establish itself as one of the leading Italian wine producers.
