Il Bruciato was born in 2002 with the aim of presenting, in a more modern way, another face of the renowned territory of the DOC Bolgheri. The Tenuta Guado al Tasso, owned by the Family Antinori, is located about one hundred kilometres southwest of Florence, on the coast of the Alta Maremma. It is here, on the estate's 320 hectares of vineyards, that the Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah grapes used to produce this wine are grown. The fruit grows lulled by constant breezes from the sea, which mitigate temperatures that are too hot or too cold and keep the sky free of clouds.
