A dense and powerful young wine with ripe tannins. Full-bodied, juicy and rich. Striking structure and fruit.
The story of the great red wines from Bolgheri crosses, from the late '70s, the one of Grattamacco estate, a true viticulture jewel in the coastal area of Castagneto Carducci able to offer, year after year, products of great significance in the context of acclimatization of international varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot. Genuine and strong key-factor of Grattamacco assets are the vineyards of property, situated in a natural cradle protected from the strong winds coming from the close sea, with 14 hectares of land alternating silt, sand, limestone and red marl in their composition. At Grattamacco estate the grapes are carefully selected by hand-sortings and then placed in a conical wooden vats, where fermentation occurs naturally with soft and long macerations and frequent manual pumping-overs. It is only during the aging in oak barrels that the different varieties, subjected to separate malolactic fermentation, are assembled creating what, after about a year and a half, will become the Bolgheri Rosso Grattamacco. Characterized by an intense olfactory impact and a high aromatic concentration, however standing out for its freshness and balance, the Bolgheri Rosso Grattamacco is a symbol of taste completeness in its wine typology, with nothing to envy to its higher-priced counterparts.
