    96 Points; Monica Larner; Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:"The first word that comes to mind when describing this wine is seamless. The 2013 Bolgheri Superiore Grattamacco offers a generous and forthcoming succession of dark fruit and spice-driven flavors that fit together like a long chain of pearls on a necklace. It's impossible to taste where one flavor starts and the next one ends. That balanced and harmonious approach is evident in the mouth where it offers a silky; smooth and long textural impression. I suggest another few years of bottle aging before popping the cork on this beautiful blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon; 20% Merlot and 15% Sangiovese. This is no doubt the best wine from Grattamacco tasted in the past decade." Issue#227; 10/16.. . 94+ Points; Antonior Galloni; Vinous:" A huge; expansive wine; the 2013 Grattamacco exudes power. The Cabernet Sauvignon speaks with an especially assertive voice in both the wine's flavor profile and overall structure. Sweet herb; menthol; licorice and leather overtones meld into a core of dark fruit as the wine continues to gain breadth in the glass. Beams of supporting acidity and tannin add backbone as well as energy. The 2013 is an impressive Grattamacco. It is also likely to require at least a few years in bottle. The blend is 65% Cabernet Sauvignon; 20% Merlot and 15% Sangiovese." 11/16.. . 93 Points; James Suckling:"I like the softness and freshness to this with medium body; silky tannins and a fruity and lemony undertone. Bright finish. A blend of cabernet sauvignon; merlot and sangiovese. Why wait?" 7/16.

    94 Points; James Suckling - www.jamessuckling.com "This single vineyard wine has a real intensity and electric vibe to it with a blueberry; berry and salty undertone. Medium to full body; the tannins are silky and energetic. A blend of cabernet sauvignon; cabernet franc and petit verdot..." 07/16. . . 94+ Points; Monica Larner; Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Bolgheri Superiore l'Alberello makes its serious intentions known from the first sniff. The wine opens to a dark and inky black appearance with a powerful ensemble of black fruit; spice; leather and tobacco. The results are integrated and seamless. This is a great vintage of a great Tuscan blend from Coastal Tuscany. It is comprised of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon; 25% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot (aged in oak for 18 months). This wine promises a slow evolution to hold it over the next decade. Delicate endnotes of crushed mineral and tobacco make for an elegant final signature.. . Grattamacco proprietor Claudio Tipa and winemaker Luca Marrone offer a spectacular batch of new releases. The 2013 Bolgheri Superiore is one of the best wines I have ever tasted from this celebrated estate and the 2013 Bolgheri Superiore l'Alberello is also in a class of its own. Mr. Tipa very generously offered to open some older vintages during my visit last year; and I have included those reviews here. As beautiful as those older wines are - and they are beautiful - I remain most impressed by the gorgeous new releases from 2013 on the market now. This estate is certified organic since 1997."
