Matarocchio 2011 is rare concentration and refinement. Great intensity and complexity at nose. Among aromas of cocoa, currants, blackberries, are felt even hints that lead back to the variety and which give it a unique personality. Silky, rich and deep.

History The Guado al Tasso is about 80 Km. Southwest of Florence, near the medieval village of Bolgheri, in Maremma. The estate of 1,000 hectares stretching from the Tyrrhenian coast to the hills and apart from vineyards, also grows wheat, corn, sunflower, olive. The vineyards are situated at an altitude between 45 and 60 meters above sea level on rocky, slightly limestone. Guado al Tasso was produced for the first time in 1990.
Vineyards location Tenuta Guado al Tasso is located near Bolgheri, on the Tuscan coast, 96 km south-west of Florence. The 300 hectares of vineyards of the estate are located in the center of the "Bolgheri amphitheater": rolling hills surround a beautiful flat degrading to the sea, creating a microclimate with unique characteristics. Guado al Tasso wine "flag" of the estate, expresses the strength and softness of this part of Maremma. It helped elevate the Bolgheri among the most important European wine, expressing a distinctly Mediterranean character made of power, elegance and balance.
Climate Vintage characterized by a cool July and an early spring hot, with temperatures above average. Budding occurred slightly ahead but with good uniformity. A regular spring and summer that, until the beginning of August, has been characterized by some rain and cool, have fostered a long growing cycle and stress. The heat of late August, although mitigated by the influence of the sea, has caused some irregularities and variability in the timing of maturation as well as a slight decline in production. September was milder, with some sporadic precipitation that allowed the Cabernet Franc completing the last cycle of ripening evenly, ensuring a great concentration of flavor and tannins.
Harvest The harvest of the grapes were handpicked, were then transferred via the cellar in boxes of 15 kg which have been selected before and after de-stemming.
Production technique Soft pressing and a pre-maceration at low temperature (10 ° C) in stainless steel tanks for five days, which was followed by the alcoholic fermentation with temperatures gradually increase up to 25 ° C. The maceration is prolonged even after fermentation, up to a total of 30 days.
Vinification The wine was placed in French oak barrels (100% new) of various origins where, later this year, has completed malolactic fermentation.
Aging Ageing extended for 18 months, during which each stem has been checked and followed individually. At the end of refinement it has decided to bottle only those barrels identified as the best in terms of integration with the wine.
