Wine Spectator 89 points - A bright, pure version, this red evokes cherry, currant and spice flavors, with well-integrated, if dusty, tannins lining the finish. Firm but has the requisite fruit. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah. Best from 2017 through 2024. 15,000 cases imported.

Il Bruciato is the younger brother of the Guado al Tasso, with a more contemporary style. It is grown in vineyards which are high in potential, but not quite prestigious enough to make the Guado al Tasso, although the vineyard management aims at producing the highest possible quality. The wine is aged in barriques for at least 8 months and for a further 4 months in the bottles, and is both intense and very smooth.
