Tasting Notes


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.


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.

The Winery

Bibi Graetz

I continue to be impressed with the beautiful wines of Bibi Graetz. These are highly singular, expressive wines that merit serious consideration.
– Antonio Galloni

Described by many as one of the most creative winemakers in all of Italy, Bibi Graetz is revolutionizing the wines of Tuscany. With no formal training and only a tiny vineyard on his parent’s property near Florence he still managed to form one of his country’s supreme cult wineries. Although Bibi doesn’t own a traditional estate, he has been able to search for preferential old vines throughout Tuscany, specifically Isola di Giglio, which is the foundation for his opulent yet sophisticated wines. He focuses on indigenous grape varieties that many other producers near him refuse to use such as Canaiolo, Colorino, Soffocone di Vinicigliata, and many more. Over time, Bibi Graetz has acquired 75 acres of vines throughout 20 small, organically farmed vineyard plots, and continues to revolutionize the way that Italian wine is thought of.
