WE ROCK YOUR WINE WORLD!!...Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah

"Cherry jam, blackberry and floral aromas and flavors prevail in this fruity red. Well-structured and balanced, if showing a youthful exuberance. Fine length. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah. Best from 2020 through 2028. 15,000 cases imported. -BS" (WS)

"This is absolutely one of the best value wines you will find in Italy and I suspect beyond. The 2016 Bolgheri Rosso Il Bruciato is a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 15% Syrah. With more than one million bottles made, there should be no problem finding it at your nearest wine merchant. Once you do locate it, I enthusiastically recommend that you pick up a few cases. This vintage comes together with seamless intensity and smoothness. You get so much dark fruit flavor, paired with soft tannins, spice, smoke and dried blackberry. Il Bruciato pulls off its magic effortlessly. It doesn't try to be anything other than it is: Delicious." (WA)

"The 2016 Bolgheri Il Bruciato is the entry-level red from Antinori's Guado al Tasso estate in Bolgheri. Dark plum, bittersweet chocolate, espresso and menthol are all amped up in this bold, juicy red. Attractive floral and spiced overtones add lovely aromatic nuance, but the Bruciato remains quite extroverted in style." (VM)

"This second wine shows such a great balance of round tannins and juicy, creamy and chocolate character. Full, flavorful and joyful. Salty and juicy. Savory and even meaty. Drink now or hold." (JS)
