    • "Grilli" Rosso Toscana IGT 2016

      “Grilli” Rosso Toscana IGT 2016

      The bright ruby red Grilli with its wonderfully fine scent of cherries, dark berries and chocolate brings much joy. Brilliant, wide and deep on the palate, taut, velvety tannins and a long finish with spicy notes. SUPERIORE.DE

      "The 2016 Grilli is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Syrah and 20% Merlot (all from vineyards in Chianti) that is fermented and aged in steel vat to preserve the freshness and the fruit-froward nature of the wine. Grilli is also Bibi Graetz's only wine made with Bordeaux or international grapes instead of Italian indigenous varieties. You get great value at this price point especially if you are looking for a mid-weight red for immediate drinking that is intense, soft, ripe and succulent. The wine opens to a beautifully saturated color with dark veins of crimson and inky purple. The bouquet is redolent of blackberry preserves, sour cherry, dark plum, bitter almond and grilled rosemary twig. The finish closes with subtle tones of menthol or medicinal herb." Robert Parker

    • "Bollamatta" Vino Spumante Rosé Brut (BIO)

      “Bollamatta” Vino Spumante Rosé Brut (BIO)

      Originally produced for fun in small editions, today Bollamatta is a serious sparkling wine that gives us as much fun as Bibi. Delicate pink, with a bouquet of small wild berries and a delicate almond note. This very rare spumante from 100% Sangiovese is light-hearted, makes good mood and should not be missing at any exuberant celebration. SUPERIORE.DE

      "To Bibi Graetz, the NV Bollamatta is all about fun. The wine is crazy fun to make (he tells me) and crazy fun to drink (I can confirm). Made in the Charmat method, this cheerful Italian sparkler is 100% Sangiovese. It opens to a pale pink color and delivers large, round bubbles that are tonic and sharp. The bouquet reveals wild berry, citrus and raw almond. The wine is extremely refreshing, and those prominent bubbles serve to brighten and liven up the palate. This wine follows in the footsteps of one of Italy's most irresistible and successful wine trends: the everyday sparkling wine." Robert Parker

      "This slightly off-dry sparkling rosé, made from sangiovese, is really fun with pretty orange and strawberry character. Medium body. Crisp finish." James Suckling

    • "Scopeto" Bianco Toscana IGT 2017

      “Scopeto” Bianco Toscana IGT 2017

      Scopeto is a refined Tuscan cuvée of Ansonica and Vermentino. Rich in finesse and elegant, the floral bouquet and the aromas of tropical fruits on the palate. The rare drop spreads out wide and silky and then has a long finish with a fine citrus note. SUPERIORE.DE

      "The 2017 Scopeto Isola del Giglio is a blend of 70% Ansonica and 30% Vermentino (vinified in stainless steel). Only 2,000 bottles were made. The bouquet opens to an intense and compelling succession of floral and yellow fruit aromas that span from honeysuckle and rose to peach, passion fruit and cantaloupe melon. Of course, you also get those salty or briny notes that come so naturally to wines made from sea-facing vineyards on the island of Giglio. The wine finishes on a dry and decisive note that keeps the palate refreshed." Robert Parker

    • "Bugia" Bianco Toscana IGT 2015

      “Bugia” Bianco Toscana IGT 2015

      Unique white wine from the dignified Ansonica, which thrives on the Isola del Giglio directly on the Tuscan coast. Soft and generous, it lies in the glass, perfumed, the sweet fruity scent emerges, with remarkable finesse and silky polished tannins Bugia caresses the palate. Fabulously beautiful. SUPERIORE.DE

      "I adore this wine. Showing a light and brilliant golden-straw color with faint amber highlights, the 2015 Bugia is a strongly mineral-driven expression from the Giglio island off the Tuscan Coast. The spirit of this wine is greatly guided by marine sensations of powdered oyster shell, salt and white stone. There are distant hints of stone fruit and honeysuckle that add just enough sweetness to help this wine from being too dry and hollow. Bugia offers a dab of creaminess to ensure a lasting impression in the mouth. This is pure Ansonica from sandy soils overlooking the blue waters of the Mediterranean." Robert Parker

      "A white from the island of Giglio that shows so much depth and layers reminding me of top Burgundy. Full to medium body, polished and very long. Shows a class and uniqueness that only that island can deliver." James Suckling

      "Brightening, sparkling ruby garnet. Somewhat restrained fruit, slightly hints of cherries and blackberries, appears restrained. Then blooms beautifully on the palate, gripping, hearty tannin, very juicy, builds up in many layers, is fun, salty in the aftertaste." Falstaff

      "Very aromatic and exciting with citrus rind, plums, cedar and rose petals. Full body, fine and silky tannins and a long and beautiful finish. Love the persistence and intensity. Salty undertone at the end." James Suckling

      "Bibi Graetz applies his unique winemaking philosophy to a can-do-no-wrong vintage. The 2013 Testamatta opens to a deep and dark ruby color and smoky aromas of cigar ash, crushed stone, licorice, grilled herb and dried cassis. Make no mistake: This is one of the most original and off-the-radar expressions of Sangiovese you will ever taste. There is managed rusticity here that matches the imperfection and the undeniable beauty of the artwork that graces its label. Those bright blue and yellow brush strokes offer major contrast, yet together they reach harmony. That seems to be the overriding message of this wine that is otherwise loaded with personality and charm." Robert Parker

    About the winemakers
    Bibi Graetz | Testamatta
    Tuscany | Chianti
    Bibi Graetz | Testamatta

    He is what the name of his vineyard expresses: Testamatta. Bibi Graetz is a creative person with a strong character who tackles challenges with great passion. On the Tuscan estate almost only autochthonous grape varieties are cultivated according to traditional methods. Testamatta is at the same time the flagship of the house: a Sangiovese in its most beautiful form with a long finish.

    The parents, who came from Norway, had acquired a country estate with vineyards in the hills of Fiesole. But for a long time nobody really cared about the cultivation area. Only Bibi Graetz, who first wanted to start an artistic career like his parents, decided one day to plant vines on the Tuscan marl and clay soils mixed with sand. He founded Testamatta at the end of the 1990s without further ado. "madcap".

    Bibi Graetz was initially overwhelmed with the winemaking process. Only after a four-year apprenticeship with experienced winemakers did he get the impression that he had enough knowledge to be able to start his new task and to exchange the painting utensils for the tools of a winemaker. Already at the VinExpo 2003 in Bordeaux Graetz was awarded as the best red wine new discovery. In the meantime, the owner of the estate has acquired an excellent reputation among experts with his fine wines, all of which bear an original Bibi Graetz motif.

    The two hectares of vineyard initially used for cultivation are no longer sufficient. That is why Bibi Graetz has been working for years with winegrowers who are friends with him, for example to obtain grapes for his estate wine, Casamatta. SUPERIORE.DE

    "The wine-grower's great merit lies in the fact that he has chosen a wine-growing zone that was not even in the mood to have its true potential restored and to have lent it splendour with interesting plants."Gambero Rosso 2009
