W&S 93 pts : This showcases the best aspects of 2014’s wet, challenging growing season. Flavours of just-ripe plum and black currant quiver with nervy acidity, the tension heightened by notes of menthol and fresh pine-forest scents. The fine, compact tannins begin to unwind after several hours in the glass, allowing notes of leafy tobacco and freshly cracked black peppercorn to emerge. The wine feels firm and fresh rather than lush, with a drive and energy that suggest it will continue to improve over several years.

WA 93 pts : Here is another one of those vintage-defying wines to emerge from a very challenging growing season with lots of rain and below average temperatures. The 2014 Bolgheri Superiore Grattamacco benefits from extreme fruit selection and careful management in the winery. This is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Sangiovese from one of the most celebrated estates on the Tuscan Coast. The bouquet is full and generous. It peels back with thick intensity revealing luscious tones of blackberry fruit with spice, leather and tobacco. There is structural firmness here but the tannins are well integrated within the fleshiness of the wine.

JS 92 pts : Pretty ripeness of fruit with a hint of fresh herbs. Medium body and fine tannins. Delicious. Made from a blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot and sangiovese.

WS 92 pts : This is bright, offering ripe cherry, currant, spice and tobacco flavors. Firm yet mouthwatering, with fine equilibrium and a long, toast- and spice-tinged finish. Very refreshing. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Sangiovese. Best from 2019 through 2025.
