Bibi Graetz, Casamatta, IGT Toscana, Italy
Like most of Bibi Graetz wines, the name is very evocative, “Casa-Matta”: the “Crazy-House”, is our bright and approachable version of Sangiovese. The idea of this wine is to be considered Bibi Graetz house-wine, fruity and fresh but at the same time a truely expression of Sangiovese!
Casamatta grapes are sourced from the youngest vineyards, from the north of Florence down south towards Siena.
The fermentation is conducted in stainless steel tanks to maintain the style of the wine, and it lasts for no more than a week without any maceration at the end of the process. The different vineyards are blended and age 6 months in stainless steel tanks before the final bottling
"This red is my favorite whenever I want a glass of wine. It is a pure, transparent Sangiovese with plenty of cherry and raspberry, nice acidity which helps with food and a round medium body with low tannins and a vibrant and surprising aftertaste." - Bibi Graetz
