Description

“I was blown away by the 2011 Matarocchio (100% Cabernet Franc). From 15-year-old vines planted some 60 meters above sea level on the Tuscan coast, this wine is absolutely stunning, delicious and simply unforgettable. Only produced in 2007, 2009 and 2011, this third edition shows towering aromas of sensuous dark fruit, leather and tobacco. If Cabernet Franc is the darling grape of this appellation, Matarocchio is a reason why. The mouthfeel is penetrating and powerful, but seamless and silky smooth at the same time. The tannin management is excellent. This is one to keep in the cellar.” (10/2014) Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

“Bright, deep ruby-red. Knockout nose offers red cherry, grilled herbs, smoke, aromatic herbs and minerals. Juicy and vibrant, displaying outstanding inner-mouth perfume and energy to the red and dark fruit flavors. Finishes smooth and long, with sneaky concentration and complexity. This wine spent 18 months in 100% new oak but you really can’t tell. Yet another pure cabernet franc now being made on the Tuscan Coast; only a few years ago you could find Paleo by Le Macchiole and little else. I should note that I like the 2011 Matarocchio better than the 2011 Guado al Tasso, which, though also outstanding, is similar to many other warm-weather Bordeaux blends made around the world; by contrast, cabernet franc from the Tuscan Coast is a truly unique wine.” (12/2014) Vinous

“Renzo Cotarella’s favourite. Still very concentrated purple with lots of mineral notes. Very charming and fresh with extreme vitality. Great stuff! Wonderful completeness and energy. Fully ripe. Great combination of freshness and intensity.” (4/2015) Jancis Robinson
