The Grattamacco winery was founded in 1977 by Piermario Meletti Cavalleri and his wife Paola Cavallari.  Located between the towns of Castagneto Carducci and Bolgheri.  Grattamacco was the second wine estate in Bolgheri, after Sassicaia (which as of  2013 has its own appellation, Bolgheri Sassicaia DOC).  This certainly speaks to the significance and quality of this small Tuscan region and its wines.  

In 2002 Piermario sold the estate to Claudio Tipa, a native Sicilian and former industrialist and founder of  Collemassari Wine Estates.    Claudio Tipa has an enviable wine empire; owning the renowned Tuscan wine estates, Poggio di Sotto and Tenuta San Giorgio in the Montalcino region and Colle Massari in the Maremma region.  His wife Maria and sister Maria-Iris work alongside him.

Grattamacco is located on a hill between Castagneto Carducci and Bolgheri and enjoys a breathtaking panorama of the Tuscan coast. The farm extends over 80 hectares, of which a good 29 hectares are planted with vines and fourteen with olives. Surrounded by 1,200 hectares of woodland, the estate is considered a model for the entire wine-growing zone. 

Tasting Notes

The Grattamacco Bolgheri Rosso is an excellent introduction into the wines from this iconic producer that are not always accessible to many due to their highly allocated nature and price premium price points.  Aromas of dark fruit, plum and black currant, chocolate with underlying notes of herbs and a balsamic freshness likely from the Sangiovese.  The palate offers good density and structure; it is a rich and  powerful wine with ripe tannins, juicy fruit, a light herbaceousnous and spicey quality.  Opulent and satisfying from attack to finish. Enjoy with pasta dishes, roast meats, strong cheeses. 


A blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Cabernet Franc, 10% Merlot and 10% Sangiovese from the Grattamacco estate in the Bolgheri DOC of Tuscan’y coastal Maremma region.  The wines of Bolgheri rose to prominence during the 1970s with the emergence of the”Super Tuscan” wines; bold and innovative red blends made from international and indigenous grapes.
