Grattamacca has been a trailblazer in Bolgheri as one of first wineries established in the region and the first winery in many regards. While their Cabernet and Merlot is especially renowned in Tuscany, their inclusion of Sangiovese in their Super Tuscans was unprecedented and flipped the region on its head.
The Grattamacco vineyards are located at an about 100 meters above sea level, in a wonderfully protected position over one of Bolgheri’s only two hills. It’s the nice part of time. Along with Grattamacco, their neighbors with triple digit price tag wines make the name Bolgheri internationally renowned.
The 2018 Grattamacca Bolgheri Rosso is absolutely phenomenal – outclassing and nearly outpointing some of its more famous (and way more expensive) neighbors. This one’s a powerhouse with a youthful charm you can enjoy now but it also has the structure to age for a very long time.
The 96-point score from James Suckling is our little secret. As soon as the importer realizes what he’s got, I’m sure he’ll have a dozen more calls to make. This is the bargain of the year in Tuscany. I can now say it confidently.

95-96 Pts, James Suckling
A dense and powerful young wine with ripe tannins. Full-bodied, juicy and rich. Striking structure and fruit.
