"(a blend of 65% cabernet sauvignon, 20% merlot and 15% sangiovese): Medium-deep saturated ruby. Deep, enticing aromas of cassis, raspberry, minerals and violet. Rich, dense and extremely refined, with high but harmonious acidity lifting the fresh mineral and red berry flavors. The red fruit flavors linger impressively on the very long, fine-grained finish. This is the best young Grattamacco I have ever tasted, and I have tasted almost all of them at this same stage of development: it should duke it out one day with the likes of 1985, 1988, and the 2001 (2004 and 2007 are the other two great Grattamacco Rosso wines of the 21st century). This 2009 has a chance to be the best of them all, as it has a measure of refinement not always this evident in Grattamacco. And it hasn't yet developed the note of iron that is very typical of Grattamacco ("macco" in the Etruscan language means iron).Outstanding stuff here."

Product Description:

"This invariably highly priced excellent Tuscan wine originates from a somewhat warmer zone around the Mediterranean, but is aromatic and wonderfully fresh. Notes of juicy blackcurrant, cedar wood and wild forest strawberries, mixed with delicate nuanced of rosemary and pepper, can be discerned. Beautifully balanced and harmonic, with a silky soft and complex structure. A perfect marriage of international sorts of Cabernet and Merlot with the local Sangiovese wine. A great wine of the Maremma region." - Winery
