Historical brand of the Bolgheri denomination in the production of structured and long-lived red wines, Grattamacco winery was established in 1977, on the top of a hill overlooking the sea between Castagneto Carducci and Bolgheri, at 100 meters above sea level. Such strategic position guarantees to the 14 hectares planted to vineyard a dry climate, mild, with remarkable thermal excursions above all at the end of the Summer able to assure a perfect cycle of maturation of the grapes here produced. The agronomic criteria adopted in the vineyard follow organic cultivation regimes, with low yields per hectare, while the high average age of the vines (about 25 years) ensures an aromatic development of the grapes of great depth. These are the fundamental premises for the production of Bolgheri Rosso Superiore Grattamacco: perfectly acclimatized on the clayey-calcareous soil of Bolgheri and only treated with manual procedures in the field, the Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Sangiovese grapes which flow into Grattamacco Superiore undergo alcoholic fermentation in truncated conical wooden vats, while the malolactic fermentation coincides with the long aging in barriques, capable of giving softness and aromatic clarity. Consistency, complexity and adherence to the typicality of the terroir are the main requisites of this great Bolgheri red wine, the spearhead of the Grattamacco estate's production. To the palate it is full-bodied and harmonious, the color is brilliant and the nose is extremely fine, with notes of black berries and cassis, accompanied by balsamic hints and a spicy note.
