About

Situated on a hilltop overlooking the Tyrrhenian Sea, Grattamacco is in an ideal position to produce some of the finest wines in Italy. Second to Sassicaia only in historical chronology of the Bolgheri territory, the estate of Grattamacco planted its first roots in the Bolgheri in 1977 and produced its first wine in 1982. 14 hectares of organically farmed vineyards lie over three distinct soil types at 100 meters above sea leve, separating them from the rest of the Bolgheri both stylistically and geographically.

Claudio Tipa, owner of the famed Poggio di Sotto estate in Montalcino Castello and ColleMassari in Montecucco, and Luca Marrone, working together with consultant Maurizio Castelli, are producing wines of great distinction that continue to showcase and celebrate all that the Bolgheri embodies.
