Grattamacco Bolgheri Rosso 2019

Located at Castagneto Carducci in Bolgheri – Italy’s ‘cradle of Cabernet’ – Grattamacco has delivered remarkable consistency since the first vintage in 1982. Situated about one kilometre from the Tyrrhennian coast, the vineyards are divided by soil type into seven micro zones and farmed organically.

Established 1977 and owned by Claudio Tipa

Winemaker Maurizio Castelli

Certified Organic
As one of the region’s historic properties, Grattamacco remains the only producer in Bolgheri to stay loyal to Sangiovese in its flagship wine – a factor we think only enhances its distinctly Italian character amongst the Bordeaux-styled wines of the region.

The winery is ‘low tech’ with a simple approach: natural yeasts, gravity feed and fermentation in small open truncated cone-shaped oak vats, resulting in the gentlest possible extraction. The flagship wine, Bolgheri Rosso Superiore, is 65% Cabernet, 20% Merlot and 15% Sangiovese from the estate’s oldest vines (minimum 20 years). Concentrated and complex aromas range from blackberry, bramble and blueberry with perfectly integrated oak and elegant, sweet spicy notes. For a wine with great ageing capacity, it is incredibly enjoyable in its youth.

Bolgheri Rosso, their ‘vino secondo’, is 60% Cabernet, 20% Franc, 10% Merlot and 10% Sangiovese. Less time in oak makes this a more fruit-forward wine with a distinct Tuscan flavour of dark berry fruits, leather, spice and grilled herb
