The charismatic Bibi Graetz has only been active in Tuscany for just under twenty years, but has already achieved cult status with his pure terroir expressions of local Tuscan grape varieties. For Bibi Graetz, the authenticity of the region is paramount. No international grape varieties here, but 100% Sangiovese in all its glory. The wines of Bibi Graetz are the ultimate pure expressions of terroir and the unique characteristics of a harvest year.

The Testamatta comes from vineyards of very old vines spread over the different vineyard farms cultivated by Bibi Graetz in both the provinces of Siena and Firenze in Tuscany. The vineyard(s) are actually small postage stamp parcels with vines that are 80 years old or older, and each parcel represents enological properties specifically selected for its individual character or uniqueness. After manual picking and fermentation, the sangiovese matures in French oak barriques for a period of 30 months, after which the wine is bottled and receives a further bottle aging of at least 6 months in the cellars of Bibi Graetz. In the glass, the wine has a deep ruby red color with an intense and complex bouquet of scents in the nose, blueberries, cherries, violets, juniper berries, rosemary, cloves and cocoa. The taste is elegant, with great finesse and complexity. The wine is powerful, full of fruit with velvety tannins. The finish is soft, intense and very long lasting.
