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.
