Description

Grattamacco Bolgheri Rosso DOC 2020

A sexy and seductive bottle of wine this one ;)
Bolgheri Rosso was born on the Grattamacco estate, located on the top of a hill overlooking the sea between Castagneto Carducci and Bolgheri. Fun fact: Bolgheri is the terroir for top wines such as Sassicaia and Ornellaia. 
Characterised by a dark garnet red colour. The nose explodes with plum and cassis, followed by earthier notes of spice, wild herbs and chocolate. A dense and powerful wine elegantly balanced with ripe tannins. This juicy and rich wine closes with a pleasant mineral sensation and hints of fresh balsamic notes.
From a vineyard 100m above sea level that enjoys a gentle Mediterranean climate. This wine is produced with a blend of 50% cabernet sauvignon, 20% cabernet franc, 20% merlot and 10% sangiovese grapes. The grapes are hand selected during the harvest and posed in truncated conical shaped oak vats. They then experience an aerobic fermentation and a manual punching down for the gentle extraction of tannins. After malolactic fermentation in stainless steel vats, the wine ages for 10 months in French oak barriques followed by 6 months of refining in bottle.
To enjoy it at its best, let the wine breathe for 15‚Äď30 minutes before serving.
