Antinori Matarocchio Guado al Tasso (Wooden case) 2015

Matarocchio 2015 shows a great aromatic complexity with notes of dark berry fruit which alternate with sensations of powdered chocolate, exotic spices, and toasted coffee. The palate is an enveloping one, rich, one of excellent tension and of long persistence on the finish and aftertaste.

The grapes were hand-picked and, after a careful and attentive selection, berry by berry, they were gently pressed and given a pre-fermentation cold maceration, one which was followed by the alcoholic fermentation of the crop. The wine then went into new French oak barrels, 60 gallons in capacity, where it completed its malolactic fermentation and matured for an 18-month period. At the end of the aging and only after careful tasting, the finest barriques were chosen and blended to create Matarocchio. The wine then reposed for twelve months before being released onto the market.

Historical Data

The Guado al Tasso estate is located in the small but prestigious Bolgheri DOC, on the coast of upper Maremma, about one hundred kilometers southwest from 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 a high level of sunlight exposure.
