2011 Matarocchio Marchesi Antinori Tuscany - Italy Red
The Antinori family has been involved in the production of wine for over six centuries, ever since, in 1385, Giovanni di Piero Antinori entered as a member, the “Arte Fiorentina”, the Winemakers’ Guild of the city of Florence. The Guado a Tasso estate is located approximately 50 miles (80 kilometers) to the south-west of the city of Florence near the medieval hamlet of Bolgheri. The property, with an overall surface area of some 2500 acres (1000 hectares), extends from the Tyrrhenian sea to the inland hills and cultivates, in addition to its 750 acres (300 hectares) of vineyards, wheat, corn, sunflowers, and olives. The vineyards are located between 150 and 200 feet (45-65 meters) above sea level on rocky and slightly calcareous soils. The first vintage of Guado al Tasso was 1990.
The 2011 Matarocchio is a wine of rare concentration and refinement. The nose is very intense and complex with notes of chocolate, blackcurrants, and blackberries along with varietal aromas which confer a unique personality. The palate is rich, silky, and deep.100% Cabernet Franc.
