2010 bibi graetz, testamatta, toscana
Why We're Buying
If you know Bibi Graetz for one reason, it's Testamatta. The Chianti blend, which translates to "crazy head," is an apt reflection of Tuscany and its owner. The original, genre-bending and critically acclaimed wine and owner duo deserve the attention of any wine investor.
Starts out supple and fruity, boasting black cherry, raspberry, earth and spice flavors. The firm tannins flex their muscles as this firms up on the chewy, intense and lingering finish. Sangiovese. Best from 2016 through 2024.
This is the same quality or better than the legendary 2006. Lovely aromas of berries, chocolate and walnuts follow through to a full body with loads of fruit, and chewy tannins that are polished and velvety. Pure sangiovese. Needs at least four to five years of bottle age still. Try in 2017.
