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.

WS 94
Wine Spectator
Impressive, offering ripe, fading cherry and plum fruit, salty licorice, leather, herb and spice aromas and flavors. Hangs together nicely, with layers of flavor unfolding through the long finish. Shows terrific length and plenty of grip for aging. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Sangiovese. Drink now through 2027. 6,000 cases made.
JS 93
James Suckling
I like the softness and freshness to this with medium body, silky tannins and a fruity and lemony undertone. Bright finish. A blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot and sangiovese. Why wait?
RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2013 Bolgheri Rosso does a great job of presenting this balanced vintage. The wine shows an impressive level of equilibrium and intensity with tonic fruit flavors that are tight and focused. It does not have the jammy overtones present in some of the other wines from 2013. In fact, the fruit element is full of freshness, crispness and linearity. Plump cherry is the protagonist but the wine also offers integrated tones of spice, leather and tobacco. This is a delicious blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Sangiovese.

Podere Grattamacco, Italy
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.

An outstanding wine region made famous by Marchese Mario Incisa della Rocchetta, who planted Cabernet Sauvignon vines for his own consumption in 1940s on his San Guido estate, and called the resulting wine, Sassicaia. Today the region’s Tuscan reds are based on Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, which can be made as single varietal wines or blends. The local Sangiovese can make up no more than 50% of the blends. Today Sassicaia has its own DOC designation within the Bogheri DOC appellation.

Disenchanted with Italian winemaking laws in the 1970s, a few rebellious Tuscan winemakers decided to get creative. Instead of following tradition, to bottle Sangiovese by itself, they started blending it with international varieties, namely Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah in differing proportions and with amazing success. However, some Tuscan Blends don’t even include Sangiovese. Somm Secret—The suffix –aia in Italian modifies a word in much the same way –y acts in English. For example, a place with many stones (sassi) becomes Sassicaia. While not all Super Tuscan producer names end in –aia, they all share a certain coy nomenclature.
