The 2013 Matarocchio is perhaps the most stunning wine I have yet tasted from the prolific portfolio of Italy's most important producer: Marchesi Antinori. This pure expression of Cabernet Franc comes from the family's Bolgheri estate Tenuta Guado al Tasso. I tasted the wine after it had been in bottle for 18 months. It is set to be released in September and less than 4,000 bottles were produced. Matarocchio was not made in 2014. Cabernet Franc is quickly becoming a headline grape along the Tuscan Coast, and this beautiful creation builds a rock-solid case for that claim. The bouquet is deep and penetrating with delicious and succulent aromatic layers that peel back in slow succession. Blackberry and dark currant is followed by tar, licorice, leather and delicate mineral tones that resemble polished river stone. There is spice, pepper and sweet clove. The best part, however, is the elegance and veritable lightness shown in the mouth. The wine is indeed structured and richly concentrated, but it feels so much lighter on its feet compared to the bulkier 2011 vintage that I tasted alongside for comparison. The wine's drinking window will remain wide open for many more years. (WA99)

Tasting note

2013 年的安蒂諾里 馬塔洛奇乾紅是一款優雅且精緻的葡萄酒。這款精緻的紅酒散發著黑皮水果、青椒、椰子和烤橡木的香氣。口感活潑且結構優雅,帶有黑加侖、切碎的香草、丁香和甘草的風味,並伴隨著細膩的單寧。這款酒由赤霞珠、梅洛、品麗珠和少量的小維多混釀而成,展現了博爾赫里風土的複雜性和優雅。葡萄來自於沖積土壤的葡萄園,土壤成分從黏土砂到黏土壤不等,並含有岩石沉積物。2013 年的年份較涼,生長季節較長,使得果實發展良好。這款酒在新的小橡木桶中陳釀,進行乳酸發酵,然後進行混釀並進一步陳釀後裝瓶。享用這款酒時,搭配烤牛排、羊排、陳年奶酪或蘑菇燉飯是絕佳選擇。

The 2013 Marchesi Antinori Tenuta Guado al Tasso Bolgheri Superiore is a wine of great elegance and finesse. This polished, linear red boasts aromas of black-skinned fruit, bell pepper, coconut, and toasted oak. The vibrant, elegantly structured palate offers black currant, chopped herb, clove, and licorice alongside fine-grained tannins. Produced from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and a touch of Petit Verdot, this wine represents the complexity and elegance of the Bolgheri terroir. The grapes are sourced from vineyards on alluvial soils with a composition ranging from clay-sand to clay-loam with rocky deposits. The 2013 vintage was cool, with a long growing season that allowed for excellent fruit development. The wine was aged in new small oak barrels, where it underwent malolactic fermentation, and was then blended and aged further before bottling. Enjoy this wine with grilled steak, lamb chops, aged cheeses, or mushroom risotto.
