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
