This is solid with density behind its cherry blackberry and tea flavors. The dusty tannins emerge on the finish but there's refinement and this builds on the palate. This should come together nicely in a year or two. Best... This is solid with density behind its cherry blackberry and tea flavors. The dusty tannins emerge on the finish but there's refinement and this builds on the palate. This should come together nicely in a year or two. Best from 2013 through 2023. -BS

Then creamy but very fresh on the palate with expressive very pure flavors of raspberry and strawberry. The smooth long finish boasts lovely sweetness and verve. This wine also strikes me as being less massive than some past vintages.

Plenty of plummy berry and vanilla character with a medium-to-full body velvety tannins and a juicy finish. Fun name. Drink now.

Bibi Graetz

Bibi Graetz started taking an interest in his family’s vineyards in the mid-1990s and finally took over with his first vintage in 2000. Before then, wine production was primarily for family consumption using farmers’ traditional methods. Graetz became so fascinated by winemaking that he started scouting around for small plots of old vineyards. Today, he has acquired more than 20. He loves working with old traditional varieties because he feels that they represent the best expression of Tuscan wines.

Always hand picked, Bibi Graetz’ red wine may include Sangiovese, Colorino, and Canaiolo, with small portions of Black Moscato and Malvasia. The white wine, called Bugia, is made with the Anzonaca grape which was cultivated for centuries on the Island of Giglio in the Tuscan archipelago.
