2005 - Grattamacco  Bolgheri Superiore Proprietary Blend

the best supertuscan!

1 star 1 star 1 star 1 star
Offers blackberry and flowers, with just a hint of earth. Full-bodied, with refined tannins and a fresh, clean finish. Long and caressing, with an attractive texture. This estate is improving with a change in management. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Sangiovese. Best after 2009

Aromas of raisins, dried flowers and prunes. Gorgeous ripe nose. Full-bodied, round and caressing. Very, very long. Lovely wine. Hard not to drink now. Reminds me of fine Burgundy.

Rich ruby garnet red colour. A mature, generous, complex nose with ripe aromas of cherries and raspberries, light tobacco notes and pleasant hints of coffee and cocoa powder. The palate is especially mouthfilling and generous with confident, elegant tannins and a long, lingering finish.

2005 - Luce Luce Proprietary Blend

The nose initially releases ripe dried plum and bright wild berry fruit, with blueberry and raspberry predominating, complemented by clean-edged notes of morello cherry, yielding gradually to more pungent essences, particularly intertwined impressions of eucalyptus and menthol, which shade into spicy black pepper and cinnamon, and smooth vanilla. Last to emerge are enticingly crisp nuances of mown hay, black liquorice, and pencil lead.The attack is velvet smooth, and a firm-structured palate builds great depth, supported by a massive suite of fine-grained, ripe tannins. An almost endless finish crowns this impressive offering

1 star 1 star 1 star 1 star
COLOUR: Dark, very intense red rubin with violet shades; light garnet-red tonalities that can just be noticed on the glass border.FRAGRANCE: Wide, elegant, delicate, lingering, earthy with mineral hints integrated with the fruity flavour and a sweet spiciness.TASTE: The first impact is sweet with sensations on mouth entry full of structure. Close-knit tannic weight but sweet and silky. Very well balanced tannins with wine sweetness. Full-flavoured and full-bodied, rich in end-palate fruity and spicy sensations.

>the wine is ruby-red in colour with an intense, characteristic and delicate aroma, harmonious, with a hint of vanilla and red fruit, wide and warm taste. Persistent, very harmonious and tasty, with a structure and complexity which gives the wine longevity.
