2017 Guado al Tasso Il Matarocchio Cabernet Franc


Il Matarocchio was inspired by the desire to create, at the Guado al Tasso estate, a wine that was the maximum expression both of a single grape variety and a single vineyard plot. Il Matarocchio was born precisely from one of these sites and is a wine of great elegance and depth, one which springs exclusively from its source of origin and from a remarkable vintage such as 2007.

A pure expression of Cabernet Franc aged for 18 months in 225 litre French oak barrels. An exceptional wine with great ageing potential, Matarocchio is made only in the very best years.

Tasting Note: Its nose offers aromas of juniper, bay leaves, Morello cherries and licorice.  Despite vintage forecasts, this wine is not overly opulent: no overripe notes, rather it delivers great elegance, clean and pure both on the nose and palate that make it, at present, almost austere. Tannins are exceptionally smooth and silky. A vintage that holds exceptional potential to evolve and express its finest characteristics even in the years to come.

Origin: Tuscany, Italy

Blend: Cabernet Franc

Marchesi Antinori

Antinori has become Tuscany’s - arguably Italy’s - pre-eminent wine producer, establishing an important presence in Piedmont, Umbria, Puglia and Lombardy.

The Antinori family has been producing wine in Tuscany for six centuries and exporting it for four – that’s 26 generations of uninterrupted family ownership, making them the 10th oldest company in the world still in the hands of the same family. They moved to Florence in the early 13th century, and remain central figures in the fabric of the city.

Marchese Piero Antinori sums up the company’s outlook thus: “Ancient roots play an important role in our philosophy, but they have never held back our spirit of innovation.”
