2021 Bibi Graetz Casamatta Bianco BIO
The Tuscan winery founded in 2000 by the charismatic Bibi Graetz has achieved cult status over the past twenty years. The winery has many enthusiasts with its idiosyncratic wines and artistic labels. This also includes the international wine press, which now annually awards the top wines Colore and Testamatta very high marks.
The Bibi Graetz Toscana Casamatta Bianco comes from old vineyards in the Tuscan Maremma. The vineyards are located between Capalbio and Argentario, on the southern coastal region of Tuscany. The wine is a blend of Ansonica, Trebbiano, Vermentino. The grapes are destemmed and then gently pressed (with dry ice). The juice is fermented in stainless steel tanks at a very low temperature to preserve freshness. This process takes two weeks. After blending, the wine matures for another 3 months in stainless steel tanks. In the glass, the Casammatta is pale yellow with pear, lemon zest, orange and peach, blossom and a hint of mint in the nose. In the mouth the wine is fruity and refreshing. Light filming. Layered wine. Delicious to enjoy as is and of course with a pasta with seafood.
The Bibi Greatz winery was founded in 2000 in the town of Fiesole in Tuscany. Bibi Graetz is considered one of the most talented winemakers in Tuscany. His father is Israeli and his mother Norwegian, but he was born and raised in Florence. He lives in part of the beautiful old castle with his Norwegian wife and 4 children.
