The Grattamacco winery is located about an hour away by road from Castello ColleMassari. It dates back to 1977 and it lies on a rise between Castagneto Carducci and Bolgheri, enjoying a panoramic view of the Tuscan coast. The Grattamacco vineyards are located at an altitude of about 100m above sea level, in a wonderfully protected position over one of Bolgheri's only two hills. Its neighbours in this location are those other wineries that, along with Grattamacco, make the name Bolgheri internationally renowned.
This area benefits from a dry climate with considerable temperature fluctuations and is famous for its great wines. Unlike other Tuscan wine-producing areas, such as Chianti or Montecucco, Sangiovese is still also cultivated here, but increasingly less frequently. The central types are the Bordeaux-Blend types: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot or Cabernet Franc. So, all robust red wine types from which robust and long-lasting wines are vinified. The property has been part of the ColleMassari Group since 2002.
