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. Grattamacco is Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Sangiovese. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2028.

Ripe cherry fruit and tobacco are backed by subtle tones of toasted almond and smoked bacon fat. This Cabernet Sauvignon-Merlot-Sangiovese blend delivers dense, slightly sweet flavors with a very soft, yielding texture that would pair well with succulent beef or lamb.

Intense iron, ink and underbrush notes complement ripe black cherry and floral aromas. Bright and fresh on the palate, with red cherry and red berry flavors lifted by sharp acidity and framed by tough tannins that leave the mouth coated dry. Very long and minerally on the finish, showing this bottling's typical flinty, ferrous qualities. -Ian D'Agata

Despite a generous lashing of new oak, this red also displays sweet cherry, raspberry and floral flavors. It's a fleshy wine, with a firm underlying structure and a long, fruit-filled finish.

It's a fleshy wine, with a firm underlying structure and a long, fruit-filled finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Sangiovese. Best from 2013 through 2020. 2,500 cases made. –BS
