Guado al Tasso Bolgheri Scalabrone Rosato 2015 750ml
Guado al Tasso Bolgheri Scalabrone Rosato 2015 750ml
Price: $18.99

Rich cherries, succulent raspberries and fresh-cut herbs dance with crushed flower petals and a kiss of orange zest in this refreshing, aromatic ’15 Rosato Scalabrone. A rare Super-Tuscan rosato, this wine hails from Antinori’s Guado al Tasso, and it’s a food-friendly, genial introduction to this storied Bolgheri esate. Zingy acidity keeps this wine nimble, but it offers a delightful complexity that is sure to delight Antinori fans. A blend of 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, and 30% Syrah, each grape varietal ferments separately in temperature-controlled stainless steel; after blending, the wine ages first in stainless steel and then rests in bottle before release.

Price: $19.99

2012 saw a high quality, low production year in this classic Vermentino, and this wine reflects its vintage in its intensity, purity, and focus.

Antinori Guado Al Tasso Il Bruciato 2015 750ml
Price: $26.99

The product of a warm growing year with reduced yields, the ’15 Il Bruciato almost hugs you with its geniality, yet it retains a nicely acidic zing to whoosh it across the palate. Fistfuls of red and blue fruits, warm baking spices, fresh loam, kisses of underbrush, flower petals and pencil lead, and a spritz of blood orange mingle in this open-knit wine. You can drink this muscular Il Bruciato now, but a year in the cellar will mellow its chewy tannins and integrate its parts into a seamless whole. A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah, Il Bruciato is the entry-level wine for Antinori’s Bolgheri estate, Tenuta Guado al Tasso. Grapes ferment in temperature-controlled stainless steel, using lower temperatures for a portion of the grapes, and malolactic fermentation is split between tank and barrels; the wine ages in barriques for seven months and four months in bottle before release.
