Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
Showing tremendous precision in its aromatics of blue and black fruit, espresso, chocolate and herbs, the ’11 Matarocchio has a lovely, sophisticated palate; dark fruit, grilled herbs, a thrum of earth and leather, and touch of spice make this bottling stunning. Black brambly fruits show great concentration in the glass, yet the wine still holds finesse and grace, making the ’11 Matarocchio a perfect expression of opulence and restraint. Matarocchio derives from just five rows of Cabernet Franc vines within Bolgheri’s Guado al Tasso vineyard; grapes ferment in temperature-controlled stainless steel for about 30 days and the wine ages in wholly new French oak barriques for about 18 months before bottling. Next to Quintarelli's fabled Alzero, Matarocchio represents a pinnacle expression of Cabernet Franc in Italy, and this 2011 bottling, just the third since its inaugural 2007 vintage, is a rare, collector delight. Fewer than 300 cases produced.
