A huge, expansive wine, the 2013 Grattamacco exudes power. The Cabernet Sauvignon speaks with an especially assertive voice in both the wine's flavor profile and overall structure. Sweet herb, menthol, licorice and leather overtones meld into a core of dark fruit as the wine continues to gain breadth in the glass. Beams of supporting acidity and tannin add backbone as well as energy. The 2013 is an impressive Grattamacco. It is also likely to require at least a few years in bottle. The blend is 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 15% Sangiovese. ANTONIO GALLONI

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. (96) MONICA LARNER, The Wine Advocate
