    "Testamatta" Rosso Toscana IGT 2016

    Bright ruby. Testamatta convinces with its wonderfully finely drawn scent of cherries, dark berries and chocolate. Radiant, wide and with depth on the palate, taut, at the same time velvety tannins and a long final with spicy notes. SUPERIORE.DE

    "Powerful ruby garnet. Very open, finely marked nose, shows notes of ripe cherries and plums, some cigar box. Lots of polished tannin, entwined with fine melting, rich cherry fruit, shows lots of rich pressure on the final." Falstaff

    "A beautiful nose, a purity of red fruits and tea leaf. The fruit is extremely well extracted - soft and sublimely fine tannins. This feels like a wine that is brimming with vivacity and life - red fruits that have such elegance and refinement." Jancis Robinson

    "The 2016 Testamatta represents a blend of fruit from old vines spread across the various vineyard holdings farmed by Bibi Graetz in both the Siena and Firenze provinces of Tuscany. These holdings include plots in Vincigliata (home base to Bibi Graetz and his family just outside of Florence), Lamole, Londa, Montefili and Siena. Many of the vines used here are 80 years old or more, and each site represents a cultural and enological patrimony that was specifically selected for its individual character or uniqueness. There is an unescapable metaphor in the many primary colors that blend or bleed into each other to form a single piece of art that is depicted on the front label of this handsome bottle. Testamatta reaches impeccable harmony in similar fashion. I tasted this wine on three separate occasions and was blown away each time. There is a seductively wild side to the wine that comes forth with chiseled intensity. Dark fruit, spice, tar, licorice and toasted spice make for a beautifully elegant bouquet. The mouthfeel remains mid-weight in approach, with polished tannins and a tightly knit texture that should relax and grow in volume as the wine evolves in the bottle." Robert Parker

    "A very beautiful and thoughtful Testamatta with aromas of earth, terra cotta, black tea, and lavender. Full-bodied, very layered and extremely polished with superb, soft tannins. Racy and very long. Muscular and formed but very, very balanced. Gorgeous richness and depth. Shows balance and wonder." James Suckling
