      Bolgheri Rosso DOC 2019 (BIO)

      Radiant ruby red. In the bouquet plum, currant, dried cherry and leather. At the palate then full juice and strength, wonderfully harmonious aroma picture of small red fruits, Mediterranean spices and a restrained tannin framework. A wonderful and balanced representative from Bolgheri, which also comes up with an impressively long finish. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Aromas and flavors of crushed blackcurrants and berries to this fresh, medium-bodied red,together with a hint of black tea. Tight, youthful tannins. What’s there not to like?" James Suckling

      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 2017 (BIO)

      “L’Alberello” Bolgheri Superiore DOC 2017 (BIO)

      L'Alberello is a beautiful Bolgheri Superiore made primarily from Cabernet. Starts fresh and vehement with warm, dark fruit aromas, then opens up further with a bouquet of herbs, coffee and a pinch of pepper. Remarkably polished and juicy on the palate, everything is in balance, silky and very charismatic on the long finish. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Rich, sparkling ruby with a slight garnet tongue. Intense and clearly marked nose, lush with elderberries and blueberries, lots of tobacco, some cardamom, shows nice game. Round and lush on the attack, opens with fine-mesh tannin, lots of juicy fruit." Falstaff

      "Aromas of spicy blackcurrants and berries. Black cardamom here, too. Full-bodied and layered with compact fruit and very fine-grained tannins. Nice fruit and spice drive through the long finish. This needs a bit of time to come together, but delicious now." James Suckling

      "The 2017 Bolgheri Superiore L’Alberello is gracious, silky and wonderfully nuanced. In 2017, this blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot is all class. Crushed rose petal, mint, sweet red berry and cinnamon all grace this mid-weight, beautifully perfumed Bolgheri red." Vinous

      "The 2017 Bolgheri Superiore l'Alberello shows a fine and seamless nature that defies this challenging vintage. The vines are planted according to a special spacing method called "settonce" in Italian. This means that each alberello plant (or head pruned vine) is equidistant to the next. In theory, this brings more light and favors even ripening. Indeed, "even" is the word that first comes to mind. The intensity and the dark fruit aromas are nicely spaced out and level." Robert Parker

      "Alberello is the classic Bordeaux blend of Grattamacco in Bolgheri, sourced from a 2ha vineyard planted with bush vines ('alberello'). Clay and earth aromas are joined by intense floral notes of violet. It's a muscular wine, large and powerful, smooth and just chalky on the finish, with an amazing mineral vibrancy." Decanter

    About the winemakersGrattamaccoTuscany | 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
