Bibi Graetz Testamatta 2015

$79.00

But I had an ace up my sleeve. In 2000, Bibi Graetz burst onto the Super Tuscan scene almost out of nowhere. Sitting on a goldmine – now 85 year-old Sangiovese ‘gardens’ surrounding his home. He brought on (now rockstar) winemaker – Antinori Antonini. 

The two set out to create the very best expression of these historic vineyards as they possibly could. The bottling would be called Testamatta and would be 100% garden Sangiovese – which was not allowed by the powers that be. 

In short order, they were outpointing the elites. The miracle 2015 vintage is no exception. Coming in at a full 99 points, ahead of Tignarello, Sassicaia, etc … (Solaia came in at 100 & and $400 price tag!) – James Suckling had a pretty dead on review. 

“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.”

99 Points, James Suckling

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.
