Offer | Grattamacco's Extraordinary 2020s

Founded in 1977, Grattamacco is Bolgheri’s second oldest estate after Sassicaia producers Tenuta San Guido. Since acquiring the property in 2002, owners Claudio Tipa and Maria Iris have built on the huge potential of the estate, investing heavily in the winery, vineyards and personnel. The subsequent surge in quality and renown has come as no surprise. 2020 is a spectacular year across Tuscany and the second in a trilogy of extremely fine vintages, where the wines are characterised by terrific depth, gorgeous purity of fruit and fully ripe tannins. We are delighted to introduce Grattamacco’s delicious 2020 reds: 2020 Bolgheri Rosso, 2020 L’Alberello and 2020 Grattamacco.

  • Goedhuis, August 2023

    The flagship wine of the estate, Grattamacco Bolgheri Superiore 2020 is a knockout this year. The uniqueness of this particular wine lies with the inclusion of 15% Sangiovese in the Cabernet and Merlot blend. Grattamacco’s breezy, higher-altitude position allows Tuscany’s signature grape to flourish here, unaffected by the humidity that can dominate its neighbours' lower altitude sites. The fruit shows a distinct freshness and a more red fruit-driven profile, bursting with cranberry, raspberry and red cherry. One of the leading Super Tuscans of the vintage, this is a true showstopper that deserves to be in every cellar. Give it at least 3-5 years in the cellar and you will be hugely rewarded.

    In addition to the 2019 vintage, I previewed the 2020 and the 2021 vintages. I'm giving a temporary review to the 2020 Bolgheri Superiore Grattamacco, but I'm holding back on the 2021 because it is too early. We have two exciting vintages before us. The 2021 (that is still in barrel) shows lots of perfumed intensity and an explosive mouthfeel. The 2020 tastes balanced and long with even more tannic structure to hold it firmly stitched together. The 2021 shows a seamless delivery of soft black fruit, cherry, spice and grilled herb. This is an iconic blend of mostly Cabernet Sauvignon with Merlot and Sangiovese.
