Deep, enticing aromas of cassis, raspberry, minerals and violet. Rich, dense and extremely refined, with high but harmonious acidity lifting the fresh mineral and red berry flavors. The red fruit flavors linger impressively on the very long, fine-grained finish. This is the best young Grattamacco I have ever tasted, and I have tasted almost all of them at this same stage of development: it should duke it out one day with the likes of 1985, 1988, and the 2001 (2004 and 2007 are the other two great Grattamacco Rosso wines of the 21st century). This 2009 has a chance to be the best of them all, as it has a measure of refinement not always this evident in Grattamacco. And it hasn't yet developed the note of iron that is very typical of Grattamacco ("macco" in the Etruscan language means iron).Outstanding stuff here. - Ian D'Agata

Dried currant, violet, cherry and sweet spices are the aromas and flavors featured in this compelling red, which picks up hints of coconut and mineral as it cruises through the long finish. Offers fine balance and expression. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Sangiovese. Best from 2014 through 2023. 2,500 cases made. –BS

A wine that builds on the palate with cocoa, berry and cedar character that turns to hazelnut. Full and chewy with lots of tannins and a long finish. Needs to soften with age. A little rustic.
