      Bolgheri Rosso DOC 2018 (BIO)

      Bright ruby red. In the bouquet plum, currant, dried cherry and leather. On the palate then full of juice and power, wonderfully harmonious aromas of small red fruits, Mediterranean spices and a bridled tannin framework. A wonderful and well-balanced representative from Bolgheri, which also has an impressively long finish. SUPERIORE.DE

      “Grattamacco” Vermentino Bolgheri DOC 2018 (BIO)

      High quality and rare Vermentino of straw-yellow colour and a bouquet of white fruits and hazelnut. On the palate flowery fresh, round and ripe. The well-dosed use of wood gives the wine a fine creamy texture. A persistent, highly elegant Bolgheri Bianco for special occasions. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Fragrant and multi-layered, flint and elegant wood spice, complex, after peach and candied lemon peel. Creamy melt, rich body, spreads out widely, shows fine play between wood spice and lemon, salty in the aftertaste." Falstaff

      “L’Alberello” Bolgheri Superiore DOC 2016 (BIO)

      L'Alberello is a beautiful Cabernet from Bolgheri with warm, dark wet aromas, herbs, coffee and tobacco. Remarkably full and juicy on the palate, long, silky and elegant on the finish. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot: Starts with a lot of esprit on notes of raspberries and violets, also notes of pepper; on the palate, the tannins and the acidity in perfect balance, has cut, melt and great length. Charismatic noble wine for special occasions." Vinum

      "Expressive and typical aromas of black currant, cedar, olive, iron and tobacco mark this medium-bodied and balanced red, well-rippled with tannins. Offers a fine, lingering aftertaste of fruit, cedar and mineral." Wine Spectator

      "Some maturity in the colour. Slightly uplifted floral nose, with notes of violets next to ripe dark fruit and Mediterranean scrub. Solid palate with weight and breadth in the weave, very natural grape tannins and a long, dry, savoury finish. Classic." Decanter

      "I love the herbal complexity with dark brambleberries, fresh herbs and cedar. Medium to full body, juicy and endearing tannins and a floral finish. From organically grown grapes." James Suckling

      "This wine delivers an exceptional quality of fruit. The 2016 Bolgheri Superiore l'Alberello is vinous and raw with an unmistakably authentic quality that gives this wine character and a specific territorial identity. You taste the flavors of the Tuscan Coast with that "macchia mediterrana," or Mediterranean brush, with ripe cherry, plum, black olive and sweet cinnamon spice. At this young stage, the wine's oak imprint is evident, but we can look forward to this relaxing and tapering down with more bottle age." Robert Parker

      “Grattamacco” Bolgheri Superiore DOC 2016 (BIO)

      Sparkling ruby red. Fine, elegant bouquet with fruit aromas, notes of coffee and complex spice aromas. The taste is long-lasting, the acidity in perfect balance to tannin and body. A wine with great personality, suitable for a long ageing, but also in its youth already a great pleasure. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Sangiovese in blend: exquisite notes of cassis, raspberries and violets; supple structure with tightly woven tannins, lots of melt, juice and length. Excellent with a kidney roast veal with mushrooms." Vinum

      "Brilliant, intense ruby red with a fine shimmer. Opened with notes of tobacco, blueberry and blackberry, followed by cinnamon. Glides over the palate like velvet, much fine-meshed tannin, many layers, spreads in all directions, much dark fruit, long aftertaste." Falstaff

      "Mid-deep ruby-purple. Torrefied, chocolate oak, with dried tobacco, subtle cedar and rich, black cherry. Sweet, black-cherry palate, counterbalanced by dark chocolate and espresso oak, and underpinned by compact, ripe, very fine, firm tannins. Creamy finish." Jancis Robinson

      "So much rosemary and tobacco, highlighting the currants and other fruit on the nose. Medium body and firm, silky tannins. Balanced and fresh finish. Remains subtle and complex." James Suckling

      "The aromas offer a subtle mix of black currant, violet, cedar, iron and sweet spices, evolving into an elegant profile, with superb balance and harmony. Complex and intense, this seems approachable even at this early stage, yet it will only gain with time in the bottle." Wine Spectator

      "Grattamacco is one of the highest estates in Bolgheri, located just beneath the village of Castagneto Carducci. Sangiovese gives the wine a particular freshness and drinkability, rejuvenating the tension of the classic Bordeaux varieties. In 2016, Grattamacco has exceeded itself, with aromas of elegant, youthful red currant fruits integrated with citrus notes and cedar wood. On the palate the wine is perfectly balanced, and more immediately drinkable than some of the other top samples. It has delicious tension and ripeness, with a mediterranean character and a hint of kiwi on the finish." Decanter

    About the winemakers
    Grattamacco
    Tuscany | Bolgheri
    Grattamacco

    The Grattamacco winery was founded in 1977 between the villages of Castagneto Carducci and Bolgheri. Claudio Tipa, born in Sicily and a former industrialist, has been managing the Grattamacco estate since 2002 - first as a tenant - now as an owner with a great deal of passion and high competence in the Bolgheri noble cultivation area. It is part of his own small wine kingdom Colle Massari Spa.
    The Tuscan company, in which he is supported by his wife Maria and sister Maria-Iris, also includes Tipa's own vineyards Poggio di Sotto in the Montalcino area and Colle Massari in the Maremma. Those who visit Grattamacco, situated on a hill between Castagneto Carducci and Bolgheri, will be rewarded with a magnificent panorama of the Tuscan coast. The very attractive farm extends over 35 hectares, of which a good 13 hectares are planted with vines and three with olives. The vineyard, surrounded by 1,200 hectares of forest, is a model for the entire cultivation zone. Its flagship is the magnificent Bolgheri Superiore Grattamacco, which is regularly praised by wine critics.

    The landowner of the Podere Grattamacco is considered by experts to be one of the most conscientious and well organised winegrowers in Italian viticulture. Since Tipa has been operating the estate, the elegant wines of the broad range have gained in fascination and stylistic definition, according to the wine tasters. Previously, the owner had pioneered Bolgheri for more than 20 years and had played a decisive role in making it a region of great red wines. Since Claudio Tipa immediately faced the fierce competition in the wine market after his entry, the small winery has discarded its character as a noble niche company in the meantime.

    Cabernet Sauvignon is mainly cultivated on the vineyard hills, which reach a height of around 100 metres above sea level (around 60 per cent). Smaller lots are planted with Sangiovese, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Only Vermentino is cultivated on the slopes as a white grape variety. The soils of the Grattamacco vineyards are sandy at lower altitudes, with limestone and marl in higher altitudes.

    In the cellar, the utmost care is taken down to the smallest detail. The hand-picked grapes ferment in small wooden vats. The farsighted winery owner deliberately refrains from adding pure yeast to control fermentation. The malolactic fermentation takes place spontaneously and ends after the wine has already been transferred into barrique barrels. All the grape varieties are vinified separately in the estate until the cuvées are produced. SUPERIORE.DE

    "Although Grattamacco was founded in the 1970s and can be considered a long-established company in Bolgheri, it does not lack dynamism and surprising developments. Gambero Rosso
