If we were to mention a Bolgheri that seems eternal in its evolutionary parable this would certainly be the Grattamacco. With Maurizio Castelli as consultant in the cellar and Luca Marrone as in-house oenologist, it seems that here the right actions to take never get out of hand. A red that excites both in its youth and after long years of aging in the bottle and capable of wonders in blind tasting among wines of equal rank. His secret? Probably that of having a substantial share of Sangiovese in its blend, something exclusive in the area, which allows it to work miracles in terms of maturation and aromatic explosiveness. Not to be underestimated is the younger brother Bolgheri Rosso, a very centered wine of exhilarating elegance.
