Podere GRATTAMACCO, Bolgheri
Becoming part of the group in 2002, this small estate in Bolgheri was founded in 1977, with Sassicaia as a neighbour. The first Grattamacco was released in 1982, and this organically produced wine has now become a firm favourite of ours (as have the other vini rossi produced from the various parcels that make up 14 ha in total…not to mention the incredible Vermentino).
Everything here is run under the dedicated and watchful eye of Luca Marrone, and this year, he is aiming to add a further vineyard with the conversion of an olive grove, adding to the new tasting-room in the winery that was being built in 2013. There is going to be plenty to come from this neat corner of Tuscany.
