Description

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!

AWARDS & ACCOLADES

  – TWO 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.

– 94 POINTS

 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.
