Wine Advocate

96 Points, Monica Larner, Wine Advocate: "This wine delivers an exceptional quality of fruit. The 2016 Bolgheri Superiore l'Alberello is vinous and raw with an unmistakably authentic quality that gives this wine character and a specific territorial identity. You taste the flavors of the Tuscan Coast with that "macchia mediterrana," or Mediterranean brush, with ripe cherry, plum, black olive and sweet cinnamon spice. At this young stage, the wine's oak imprint is evident, but we can look forward to this relaxing and tapering down with more bottle age. Some 8,000 bottles were made." 5/19

International Wine Reviews

94 Points, R. Vecchione, International Wine Review: L'Alberello gets its name from the way the vineyards are trained as was the first vineyard to be planted in Alberello shape in Bolgheri area. The 2016 'L' Alberello' is another fantastic wine from Grattamacco in this vintage. It begins with attractive aromas of dried plums, cherries and tobacco with hints of mint that add even further complexity. This boasts a medium to full body that is structured with firm and present tannins that lead into a vertical and sharp finish. A modern, well-made wine that is showing lots of early appeal, yet should have a wonderful future ahead." 9/19.
