Estate

From a medieval castle, Castello di Vincigliata, acquired by his parents over 60 years ago, winemaker Bibi Graetz crafts his wines on a hillside overlooking the great city of Florence. Beginning initially with only a small, 5-acre vineyard on this hillside in Fiesole, in little under two decades, Bibi has become one of Italy's most ingenious winemakers adding "cult winemaker" in addition to "talented abstract artist" to his dossier.

Since the release of his first wines in 2000 and without any formal training, Bibi Graetz has managed to stir-up the Tuscan wine scene, and with the creation of Testamatta and Colore, has made his name eponymous with great Tuscan wines. Regularly scoring in the high 90’s with wine publications like Wine Spectator, Wine Advocate, and James Suckling, coupled with his unique and artisanal winemaking approach, Bibi Graetz’s wines have garnered a loyal following among wine collectors and wine trade.

Tasting notes

“This vintage was able to bring Sangiovese to one of the haughtiest expressions of power. The structure of the wine results warm, rich and concentrated without losing the polish elegance of the tannins. Compared to other vintages this will result very generous, opening the nose with mature red fruits followed by tobacco and plum. this has been a benchmark for my personal experience with Tuscan grapes” Bibi Graetz, winemaker & owner
