You will like to know that…

The Antinori family has been fully immersed in the world of Italian wine production for more than six centuries. The Bolgheri estate was inherited by the family in the 1930s. Luckily for them, the previous owners had devoted the land to wine since the late 1600s. From these expressive lands, planted in Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Vermentino Nero and Bianco, come a number of elegant and complex wines, a star of which is Il Bruciato.

The first vintage of Il Bruciato did not happen until 2002. It was devised as a modern take on the unique terroir offered by the estate and used a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Syrah. Sixteen years later, the Antinori Bolgheri Il Bruciato 2018 follows in the powerful footsteps of its siblings. The three types of grapes were harvested and fermented separately, to ensure each variety was able to develop its own particular aromas.

The care put into the crafting of this gem shows in the final product. The intense colour is perfectly matched by the full flavour that this beautiful Italian wine carries in its depths. Warming and silky with a pleasingly long finish, this wine is nothing less than a pleasure to drink.

The Winery

Guado al Tasso Antinori

Guado al Tasso Antinori

A territory, that of Guado al Tasso, distinguished by the Bolgheri Amphitheater, a series of hills that enclose the plain overlooking the sea, capable of creating a unique microclimate, with great thermal excursions. The Guado al Tasso vineyards are located at the foot of the Amphitheater and, in the night, the cold air comes down from the hills to cool the rows. These particular climatic conditions give the grapes a marked aroma and guarantee a perfect ripening of the berry.

I like to surprise my family with this wine.
Clear ruby red colour. The red smells good, like red fruit compote. The taste was like fresh grapes.
A red that pairs well with moussaka.

I went with work colleagues to Guado al Tasso Antinori and we taste it there.
Red base colour with violet hints. It smells like sweets. It was light but tasted like blackberries.
It was served together with the appetizer.
