Bibi Graetz Toscana Rosso Casamatta

Bibi Graetz Toscana Rosso Casamatta

Sku: 024854

Casamatta ( meaning Crazy House!) is a 100% sangiovese pure blend from various Tuscan microclimates. Smooth and rich, the wine displays all the classic qualities of the varietal with ripe red currant, earthy tannins, and hints of licorice. It is easy to drink, great with food or just by the glass, and sure to please.

Tasting notes
The wine displays classic notes of dried cherry, currant and spice, as well as perfumed floral notes with soft tannins.

Bibi Graetz’s 2009 Casamatta Rosso (Sangiovese) is a plump, juicy red perfect for informal drinking. Ripe cherries, flowers, licorice and spices come together nicely on a mid-weight frame. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2012. ”
The 2011 Casamatta Rosso is an attractive, juicy wine bursting with sweet red berries, flowers, licorice, mint and spices. It shows lovely body and depth in a fresh, vinous style best suited for near-term drinking. Aging should not be a problem, as I imagine most bottles will be long gone by the time that is an issue. The Casamatta Rosso is a terrific value, too. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2014.

Technical notes
(100% Sangiovese). Fruit from vineyards south of Siena in Maremma was fermented and aged in stainless steel.
