Grattamacco Bolgheri Rosso Superiore
Ready, but will improve

Founded in 1977, the Grattamacco winery is located at the top of the hill overlooking the sea between Castagneto Carducci and Bolgheri, at an altitude of 100 metres, in an area highly suited to the production of great wines.  The name of the winery derives from the word "macco" whose Etruscan meaning is "iron": its soils were in fact Etruscan mines and are very rich in minerals.

In the Grattamacco winery there are truncated cone vats used for fermentation, which takes place only with indigenous yeasts. Amongst the various wines in the range, the Bolgheri Superiore undoubtedly stands out, being the first Bolgheri to contain a significant proportion of Sangiovese. This choice has given it a truly high level of aroma and ageing potential. These are elegant and tasteful wines from a great Bolgheri winery.

Wonderfully multilayered with fresh aromas and mineral notes that are often perceived here, reminiscent of iron, very distinct, noble fruit with aromas of perfectly ripe berries, noble cherries, cassis and cranberries. Extremely fine and elegant on the palate , with very precise and super elaborate tannins that almost perfectly embraces the body like a tailored suit, appears linear with fine acid freshness that penetrates the palate. This is mega awesome!
