Podere Grattamacco

"one of Bolgheri's historic estates... an estate that has at times been overlooked in favor of some of its more famous neighbors...prices remain quite reasonable"
Antonio Galloni - Vinous

Now the 36th release with its first vintage in 1982, Grattamacco can claim to be the second "Super-Tuscan". The estate, founded in 1977 always placed unusual emphasis on Sangiovese in the blend, favouring elegance over power. Their total vine coverage is 29ha planted to 60% Cabernet Sauvignon 15% Sangiovese 10% Merlot 10% Cabernet Franc 5% Petit Verdot, on the plain with a terroir mix of silt and red sandy soils. Farmed organically and exclusively hand harvested.
