Grattamacco Bolgheri Superiore Red Blend 2008

$44.95

The flagship 2008 Bolgheri Superiore Grattamacco is beautifully delineated and articulate in this vintage. Sweet red cherries, flowers, spices and licorice are some of the notes that emerge from the glass. This is a decidedly bright, elegant Grattamacco that impresses for its fabulous overall balance and understated, classy personality. Firm, yet well integrated tannins and insistent minerality suggest the wine will drink well for many years, although to tell the truth, it is pretty delicious today... Anticipated maturity: 2013-2028. Robert Parker Wine Advocate

Cab Sauvignon, Merlot, and Sangiovese. Not my style. Good acidity, but too dark and concentrated.

White pepper and cedar bouquet . Dark blackberry, and tar smoothed out to currant and green pepper. Soft, at times chalky tannins .

Dry red with a fruity nose. Tannin "grip" is a little much in my opinion but overall flavor is light.
