"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. "

" Complex cherry, currant, mineral, spice and tobacco aromas signal this serious version. Despite the ripe fruit flavors and sweet tones, this has grip and the potential for development. Hangs together nicely now, in a youthful phase. Terrific length. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Sangiovese. Best from 2022 through 2038. 4,000 cases made. "

Not only is it half the price of Sassicaia and Ornellaia, it will even amaze those of you who normally love wines like Tignanello!!!
Think about all the other Super Tuscan offers you normally buy. There are some amazing wines in this category; and depending on the varieties you normally look for ... your idea of the perfect Super Tuscan may vary. In this case, we're talking 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 15% Sangiovese.
This wine has a little more in common with greats like Guado al Tasso from Antinori. But, we have a feeling that Tignanello lovers who also love Cabernet Sauvignon will absolutely flip for this, too!
"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
