jamessuckling.com, December 2021

Very attractive combination of dried fruit and spices with black cherries and plums. Aromas of flowers and sandalwood, too. Full-bodied and very refined, yet intense, with plush, velvety tannins that are wonderfully...

The 20 year anniversary vintage, bright cherry red in colour; medium intensity visually and yet full intensity on the palate. Sweet raspberry and red cherry fruit, edges of smoked caramel and butterscotch, fine boned...

Decanter, March 2022

Yet another fine year, however some wines in 2019 - although not Testamatta - lacked a little concentration. Relatively light in colour, it's at the other end of the density scale to the wines of the early 2000s. There...

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, August 2021

A pure expression of Sangiovese, the Bibi Graetz 2019 Testamatta is a wine in constant evolution. Bibi has added 17 more hectares of vineyard to the program, with 12 hectares in Fiesole (north of Florence) and 5 hectares...

Wine Enthusiast, May 2022

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.

The vineyards for Testamatta are more than 35 years old, located in the Tuscan hills outside of Fiesole, overlooking the city of Florence. The wine is made from 100% Sangiovese planted on clay and galestro soil. The grapes are fermented in open top barriques of 225 liters with 6 to 8 manual punch-downs per day, and aged in French barriques for 18 months followed by 6 months in the bottle.
