Bibi Graetz Casamatta IGT Toscana Rosso
This product is currently sold out.
Bibi Graetz may have started his career in art rather than viticulture, but in just two decades has risen to become one of Tuscany's most ingenious cult winemakers. Crafting wines in a medieval castle overlooking the city of Florence, he turned his back on the constraints of the Chianti DOCG in favour of indigenous varietals and innovative, risk-taking winemaking.
Regardless of the popular super-Tuscan trend for using international varieties, Bibi was determined to use only the indigenous varieties of the area in his winemaking. But, he was also adamant that the grapes he used would be the best he could find in Montepulciano - and if that meant that they lay outside the classically 'great' viticultural areas of Chianti Classico, then so be it.
This wine is fruity and fresh but at the same time still a true expression of Sangiovese. This is a medium-bodied, juicy red offers plenty of dark red fruit in an accessible style underpinned with a bright accent of acidity.
