1996 Grattamacco Bolgheri Superiore Rosso (torn labels)

SKU #1071584

According to Stephen Tanzer: "Bolgheri -- "the golden oasis of the Maremma"-- is at the heart of the Tuscan Coast, and Grattamacco is one of the oldest properties here. In a nod to history, these wines have always included a portion of Sangiovese, recognizing the importance of this grape to the region. Grattamacco's flagship is one of Tuscany's historically great wines. Made from Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, this is pure and precise, reaching its peak about ten years after the vintage."

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world. For our entire Italian wine selection, click here.
