Grattamacco Rosso Bolgheri Superiore "L'Alberello" DOC 2014

Eclectic, elegant and with finesse. Grattamacco's L'Alberello is a robust, opulent and intense Bordeaux blend that'll have you vying for more.
Garnet red with a sparkle. Packs a punch of character with ripe cassis and blackberry fruit plus dominant notes of leather and coffee. The wine has a cabernet franc backbone, complex structure and silky tannins. Delicious lingering black fruit finish.
From a 2 hectare vineyard 100m above sea level that enjoys a gentle Mediterranean climate. The vineyards were cultivated with an ancestral method called "settonce" with a vine training system called Alberello or Bush. A blend comprising of 70% cabernet sauvignon, 25% cabernet franc and 5% petit verdot. Hand-picked and carefully selected from vineyards with a very low yield. Fermentation occurs in open wooden vats with a manual punching down for the gentle extraction of tannins. Aged in French oak barriques for 18 months, followed by 12 months of refinement in bottle.
Top tip: Serve and drink from larger glasses!





 A little herbal but there is a fresh fruit and cedar undertone that I like. Medium body, lightly velvety tannins and a flavorful finish. Made from a blend of cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc and petit verdot. Drink now or hold.
 The winemaking team at Podere Grattamacco has found the best interpretation of this difficult vintage. The 2014 Bolgheri Superiore l'Alberello is a beautiful blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot aged in oak for 18 months. It is generous and fruit-forward with great textural richness. This is a medium to full-bodied expression with a firm and lasting mouthfeel that makes all the difference. Dusty and fragrant perfumes of moist earth appear on the close.
