  • 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 that confer a unique personality. The palate is rich, silky, and deep. Matarocchio 2017 is rich with an intense color. Its nose offers aromas of juniper, bay leaves, Morello cherries, and liquorice.  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. It is a vintage with exceptional potential to evolve and express its finest characteristics even in the future.



Grapes were hand harvested, meticulously selected berry by berry on sorting tables, then gently crushed and underwent a period of pre-fermentation cold maceration before alcoholic fermentation. The wine was transferred into new French oak barriques, where malolactic fermentation was completed, and it continued to age for 18 months. Once ageing was complete, and after careful barrel tasting, the best barriques were selected and blended to craft Matarocchio. The wine was left to age for over a year in the bottle before being released.

The Guado al Tasso estate is located in the small but prestigious Bolgheri DOC, on the coast of upper Maremma, about one hundred kilometres southwest of Florence. This appellation has a relatively recent history, DOC Bolgheri was approved in 1995, and since then, it has become an internationally recognized reference point for the Italian and international winemaking arena. The estate covers an area of about 320 hectares (790 acres) planted with vines, set in a beautiful plain encircled by rolling hillsides known as the "Bolgheri Amphitheatre" due to its particular shape. The vineyards are planted to Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, and Vermentino. The nearby sea provides a mild climate with constant breezes that mitigate summer heat and alleviate harsh winter weather, maintaining a clear sky and high sunlight exposure.
