Wine Description

Black cherries, espresso, grilled herbs, crushed rocks and spices are some of the notes that emerge from this generous, expressive wine. Il Bruciato is Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah. A clean, saline finish makes it impossible to resist a second taste.

    Guado al Tasso 2007 is already beginning to develop an elegant fragrance, offering an fresh aromas with mild nutty notes and hints of menthol which are balanced by flavors of full-flavored dark fruits. The wine bathes the palate in rich, smooth tannins. It has a long finish and leaves a lingering taste of ripe black berry fruit. Guado al Tasso is a harmony of flavors and is beautifully refined, which together make it fascinating right from the first drop. 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc, 3% Petit Verdot
