Grattamacco

About Grattamacco

Whilst the famous Tenuta San Guido, producer of legendary Sassicaia and first iconic estate established in Bolgheri, is a name know across the world by those with even a passing interest in fine wine, Grattamacco is an altogether more hidden gem.

A true champion of the hallowed terroir that is coastal Bolgheri, Grattamacco is perched atop a hill facing the Tyrrhenian Sea and was founded by adventurous entrepreneur Piermario Meletti Cavallari in 1977. Far from an investment-driven by the head, the establishing of Grattamacco was undoubtedly a leap of faith into what current winemaker Lucca Marrone describes as “the wild west” of viticulture.

Five long, hard years it took before the estate’s derelict buildings and neglected farmland were in a fit enough state to release Grattamacco’s first-ever vintage in 1982, a full three years ahead of the mighty Ornellaia’s debut. In something of a further leap of faith, and ultimately a testament to Cavallari’s belief in Bolgheri as a force to be reckoned with in fine wine, Grattamacco was the very first producer to label its top wine as “Bolgheri” rather than the ubiquitous (in the 1980s) “Super Tuscan”.

Laying the foundations, by all rights, of our modern understanding of everything from soil typography to microclimate and weather patterns thanks to the radical study commissioned by Grattamacco at the University of Milan, this is a wine of astounding importance and should be on the radar of all true lovers of Italian fine wine.

Wine Advocate (90)

The fresh and elegant 2014 Bolgheri Rosso is yet another wine that defies the low expectations of this challenging vintage.

Grattamacco Bolgheri Superiore 2010 (6x75cl)

Antonio Galloni - Vinous (94)

The 2010 Grattamacco is drop-dead gorgeous. Sweet, layered and impeccable in its balance, the 2010 impresses for its silkiness, depth and purity. Black cherry and plum notes meld into mocha, violets, cloves and menthol in a polished, refined wine loaded with class. The 2010 is one of the most refined Grattamaccos I can remember ever tasting. It is also one of the very best. Readers won't want to miss this Bolgheri icon in 2010.

Grattamacco Bolgheri Superiore 2014 (1x150cl)

Wine Advocate (93)

Here is another one of those vintage-defying wines to emerge from a very challenging growing season with lots of rain and below average temperatures. The 2014 Bolgheri Superiore Grattamacco benefits from extreme fruit selection and careful management in the winery. This is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Sangiovese from one of the most celebrated estates on the Tuscan Coast. The bouquet is full and generous. It peels back with thick intensity revealing luscious tones of blackberry fruit with spice, leather and tobacco. There is structural firmness here but the tannins are well integrated within the fleshiness of the wine.

Wine Advocate (97)

The 2015 Bolgheri Superiore Grattamacco is big, bold and absolutely stunning. This blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 15% Sangiovese is dark and luscious, with overlapping melodies of tobacco, spice, dark fruit and grilled herb. There is so much depth and power. This vintage is a gem for your cellar, and the wine should award a long aging trajectory for those who have the patience to wait. Some 50,000 bottles were made.

Grattamacco Bolgheri Superiore 2016 (1x150cl)

Decanter (97)

Grattamacco is one of the highest estates in Bolgheri, located just beneath the village of Castagneto Carducci. It has a distinctive contribution of 15% Sangiovese to the blend, along with the Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. This indigenous grape 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 (96)

The contribution of Sangiovese (15%) in the blend of Grattamacco makes it a distinctive Bolgheri Superiore. If on the nose Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot are prevailing with cassis fruit, cedar and kiwi, full of balsamic depth, the indigenous grape pushes the fragrance of the wine with chewy wild fruit flavours. An exceptional expression in the hot vintage. Complex and layered, without any foursquare character, this organic wine is waiting for extra complexity over its liquorice finish.
