Grattamacco Bolgheri Superiore 2015 - Tuscany, Italy - Blend 750ml
The 2015 vintage has seen high summer temperatures that fortunately have been mitigated by the abundant rains of June and August. The whole harvest time was accompanied by mild and sunny days, with no rainfall. This has favoured an important accumulation of sugars and colour in the grapes, which have arrived in the cellar completely healthy and intact. The September climate also supported a correct maturation of the skins and grape seeds and a high presence of extracts. The harvest lasted until September 29th. A year of great generosity and integrity.
Wine Spectator 95 (Highly recommended) - Complex cherry, currant, mineral, spice and tobacco aromas signal this serious version. Despite the ripe fruit flavors and sweet tones, this has grip and the potential for development. Hangs together nicely now, in a youthful phase. Shows terrific length. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Sangiovese.
