bibi graetz, testamatta, toscana 2015
A rich version, with a layer of oak and flavors of black cherry, plum and underbrush. Stays firm through the tobacco-tinged finish, yet there is ample fruit here. Sangiovese. Best from 2020 through 2032. 1,500 cases imported.
A stunning wine. This is the best Testamatta ever made. Fascinating aromas of red fruits, tea, bark and wet soil as well as fresh leather. Full body, silky tannins and a juicy finish. I love the tension and texture of this great red. So gorgeous to taste now but better in 2021.

COMMENTARY: The 2015 Bibi Graetz Testamatta is a top-level Tuscan red. TASTING NOTES: This wine offers a beautiful synergy of the old and modern styles. Enjoy its lovely and complex ripe fruit and aromas and flavors with a plate of Italian cheeses and salamis. (Tasted: September 9, 2019, San Francisco, CA)
