Reviews for 2009 Bibi Graetz Testamatta IGT

JS 96
James Suckling - jamessuckling.com, April 2012
Soft and almost oily in texture with cedar chocolate orange and spices. Very Burgundian. From a top year. But intense and Tuscan. Long and gorgeous. Voluptuous. Decadent and sexy.

Pure and fruity exhibiting cherry jam and raspberry flavors with a rosemary accent. Stays fresh and juicy through the finish where given some air the tannins are well-integrated. Best from 2013 through 2023. -BS

Reticent aromas of raspberry red cherry and chocolate. Then large-scaled fat and chunky on the palate with highly concentrated red fruit and herbal flavors showing creamy depth and noteworthy persistence. This rather powerful wine stains the palate on the long ripely tannic finish. I would have liked a bit more finesse but many drinkers will love this.

There is plenty of Sangiovese character in the dusty red cherries flowers licorice and tobacco. The wine's color and forward bouquet suggest it is on a relatively fast path of evolution. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2021. -Antonio Galloni
