Bolgheri Rosso Superior 2013 Grattamacco
€ 60,50 (incl. BTW)
The first word that comes to mind when describing this wine is seamless. The 2013 Bolgheri Superiore Grattamacco offers a generous and forthcoming succession of dark fruit and spice-driven flavors that fit together like a long chain of pearls on a necklace. It's impossible to taste where one flavor starts and the next one ends. That balanced and harmonious approach is evident in the mouth where it offers a silky, smooth and long textural impression. I suggest another few years of bottle aging before popping the cork on this beautiful blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 15% Sangiovese. This is no doubt the best wine from Grattamacco tasted in the past decade.
I like the softness and freshness to this with medium body, silky tannins and a fruity and lemony undertone. Bright finish. A blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot and sangiovese.
