Great price on Antinori's Guado al Tasso "Il Bruciato" Bolgheri

2015 Guado al Tasso "Il Bruciato" Bolgheri Red...$17.98
Check out this amazing price!
Awesome value from Tuscan royalty the Antinori's. The family has 600 years of wine production under their belt, and is a leading innovator of Italian wines, especially with the so-called "Super Tuscan" movement. This Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Syrah blend is the second label to the famed Gaudo al Tasso, which goes for 5 times as much! You don't need to spend a fortune to taste historic Bolgheri with "Il Bruciato".
This is dark but not brooding, with a burst of ripe black currant and black cherry fruit shaded by licorice, spice and mint. Features grip and a lingering finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah. Drink now through 2020. 15,000 cases imported.–BS
(Wine Spectator list price is $31!!)
Rated 92/100 The Wine Spectator 
Aromas of black currants, black berry and wet earth follow through to a full body, dark and juicy fruit and a long and flavorful finish. Layered and rich with a lovely ripe tannin mouthfeel. Shows the opulence of the outstanding 2015 vintage.
Rated 93/100 James Suckling
