Winemaker Notes

A wine produced from vineyards at 100 and 200 m. asl, where the soil is characterized by calcareous sandstone, marl and calcareous flysch mixed to clay. The climate is temperate Mediterranean with frequent sea breezes. A viticulture based on methods and principles totally respectful to the environment allows a spontaneous productive balance of about 7 tons of grapes per hectare, all hand harvested and carefully selected grapes in the vineyards with an average age of 24 years.

JS 94
James Suckling
Aromas of blueberries, blackcurrants and blackberries that follow through to a full body, firm and silky tannins and a fresh and clean finish. Very layered and beautiful. A blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot and sangiovese. Celebrates its 30th harvest.
RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

This bottle is marked by a 30th anniversary seal (1982–2012) on the front label. The 2012 Bolgheri Superiore Grattamacco is a wine that has improved with aging. This elegant expression shows fine fruit with sweet cherry highlights and soft tannins. You might catch glimpses of the summer heat with a hint of white raisin or dried plum. However, there is a sprightly herbal note and freshness that suggest that this bottle could easily go another ten years. The 2012 vintage saw 1.5 meters of snow in the winter with dry and hot weather conditions that continued for the rest of the summer. The soils had absorbed enough humidity during winter to carry through to the summer season. Best after 2022.

Podere Grattamacco Winery Video

Founded in 1977, and acquired by the Tipa Bertarelli Family in 2002, Grattamacco was one of first the two wineries in Bolgheri. A region typically known for Cabernet and Merlot, Grattamacco sets itself apart from surrounding wineries with its winemaking practices using 15% Sangiovese to impart quality and elegance in its wines. Grattamacco was not only the first winery in Bolgheri to use Sangiovese because of its high altitude despite its proximity to the coast, but also the first to plant Vermentino. Grattamacco wines are known for both their power, elegance and complexity that evolves with time.
