The 2018 Grattamacco Bogheri Rosso, the property’s most affordable red wine, is a blend of 50% cabernet sauvignon, 20% merlot, 20% cabernet franc, and 10% sangiovese. Winemaker Luca Marrone aged it for 10 months in French oak barriques followed by at least 6 months of bottle aging before release.
The nose is a combo of dark fruits and chocolate with notes of plum and black currants, elegant and full with a fresh balsamic finish given by the Sangiovese. A dense and powerful wine with ripe tannins, juicy and rich with a striking structure. The Grattamacco Rosso is selected for its freshness and drinkability.
“A dense and powerful young wine with ripe tannins. Full-bodied, juicy and rich. Striking structure and fruit. 95-96 points.” James Suckling, Sept. 2019.
