Lot #783. Antinori Guado al Tasso Matarocchio 2016

Description: Consists of 3 Bottles, 0.75L
Score: 98 AG.
"The 2016 Bolgheri Superiore Matarocchio, the estate's pure Cabernet Franc, is stunning. Dark, sumptuous and super-expressive, the 2016 is a seamless, exotic beauty. Even with all of its richness, the 2016 remains finessed and nuanced to the core, with exceptional balance and tons of energy. This vibrant Bolgheri Cabernet Franc will drink well for many years. I tasted a wide range of wines at Guado al Tasso just as the 2019 harvest was getting started. As is the case throughout Tuscany, the 2016s are off the charts, the 2017s are rich wines that will drink well early and the 2018s show the more mid-weight style of the year. The overarching theme in recent years has been a move towards greater freshness and vibrancy, and that is very much in evidence across this lineup." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com, Jul 2019
