Tasting Notes:

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. I sat down with Renzo Cotarella and his team of winemakers this summer to taste through various wines produced by the Antinori family. Although 2011 was a difficult vintage, I need to enthusiastically recommend their pure expression of Cabernet Franc called Matarocchio. It is my favorite pick among all the wines I tasted in Bolgheri this year.

description Producer information Professional reviews

The Antinori family has dedicated itself to wine production for more than six hundred years: since, in 1385, Giovanni di Piero Antinori became part of the Arte Fiorentina dei Vinattieri. Throughout its long history, through 26 generations, the family has always directly managed this activity with innovative and sometimes courageous choices, but always maintaining the respect for the traditions and the territory. Today the company is chaired by Albiera Antinori, with the support of the two sisters Allegra and Alessia, personally involved in the company activities. The Marquis Piero Antinori is currently the Honorary President of the company. Tradition, passion and intuition were the driving qualities that led the Marquises Antinori to establish itself as one of the leading Italian wine producers.
