The 2017 harvest will surely be remembered as the most precocious of all time, started with the first Merlot on August 17th and ended on September 21st with the last Cabernet Sauvignon. A providential help for the ripening of the grapes arrived thanks to the rains that fell during the first half of September which allowed to slow down the harvest and calmly pick up the remaining grapes. Even in a rather caloric vintage, however, freshness and pleasant taste that characterize the territoriality of this wine stand out. Typical balsamic notes of Mediterranean spices and small red fruits. Agile and persistent character.

Grattamacco's Bolgheri Rosso pairs perfectly with typical, hardy Tuscan dishes and is excellent throughout the meal for its freshness and its versatile character.
