A dense, layered white with tannin tension in the palate, which gives it definition and texture. Plenty of subtle lemon, stone and salty undertones. It’s full and racy with uniqueness that makes it really attractive...   A dense, layered white with tannin tension in the palate, which gives it definition and texture.

This wine is a little flatter compared to the Colore Bianco, with orchard fruit, melon, crushed pine nut and rosemary essence. The mouthfeel is broad and rich, spreading smoothly over the palate with creamy intensity and more nutty flavors. You wait for it, and there it is: that pretty note of Mediterranean salinity that pegs this wine to its island origins. - Ml

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.
