The son of a sculptor, Bibi Graetz is a creator. At the same time a painter and a winemaker, he inherited from his family in the 1960s the Château de Vincigliata and its two acres of vines in Fiesole, a few kilometres from Florence in the region of Tuscany.
It was at the beginning of the 2000s that his wines became known and reknowned the world over, representing them as works of art. It’s true, Bibi Graetz wanted the everyone to discover his artistic talents thanks to his labels featuring abstract paintings with striking colors, a different one for each wine.
The vines are very old, surpassing 60 years. Harvesting is completed exclusively by hand, an artisinal method of winemaking. Maturation takes place in French oak barrels for 24 months, followed by 12 months in the bottle.
Testamatta in Italian signifies a person with a strong personality and a distinctive creative style. Made of 100% Sangiovese, this flagship product of Bibi Graetz is the result of a match between tradition and creativity, elevating it to the level of Super Tuscan.
Composed of different Tuscan varieties, Colore represents the expression of Bibi Graetz’s dream. The Sangiovese provides the structure and force of the wine, fruit and mellow tannins come from the Colorino, added to the minerality and intensity of the Canaiolo.
