14%VOL. 

55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 15% Syrah

Vinification

Upon arrival in the cellars, the grapes were destemmed and given a soft pressing. The fermentation and the period of skin contact between the wine and the skins took place in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks and lasted from ten to fifteen days at temperatures between 82° and 86° Fahrenheit (28°-30° centigrade). A part of the Merlot and Syrah musts was fermented at lower temperatures to better conserve their varietal aromas. The malolactic fermentation, which took place partly in small oak barrels and partly in stainless steel and was completed, for each and every variety, by the end of the year. The Cabernet Sauvignon was then blended together with the Merlot and Syrah and the resulting wine put back into small oak barrels where it reposed before being bottled.

Historical Data

Il Bruciato was created in the year 2002 during one of the most difficult vintages at Guado al Tasso in order to present the unique terroir of Bolgheri and give it a greater visibility and recognition. The first blend to be used was that of Guado al Tasso only to see, in the years which followed, a modification of the varietal composition and the identification of a series of vineyard plots intended to be used exclusively for this wine. The wine was not produced in the 2003 vintage.

Tasting Notes

The 2017 Il Bruciato shows an intense ruby red color. The nose presents the notes of red and black berry fruit which are characteristic of this vintage and capable of giving the wine an excellent concentration. Sweet spices and a hint of liquorice complete the bouquet. The palate is well structured, persistent, and highly pleasurable in its fruity finish and aftertaste.
