Bibi Graetz Soffocone di Vinciglia

Bibi Graetz Soffocone di Vinciglia, old vines are the key to every wine Bibi makes, hand nurtured and tendered, the old vines are coaxed into producing small crops of fantastically high quality.

All of Bibi’s wine are made exclusively from indigenous Tuscan varieties.

Bibi Graetz Soffocone di Vinciglia has hints of coffee, leather, and wild berries on the nose with a velvety, silky texture on the palate. The wine has very elegant tannins with a long and persistent finish.

Considered one of Italy’s most ingenious winemakers, Bibi Graetz has risen from artist to cult winemaker since the release of his first wines back in 2000. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Azienda_Agricola_Testamatta

Without any formal training and with initially only a small 2 hectare vineyard on his parents’ property overlooking Florence, he has managed to unceremoniously gatecrash the staid Tuscan wine scene.

Now rated in the top 12 collectable Tuscan producers, Bibi’s wines have gone from strength to strength over the past decade.

Using organic cultivation methods and resisting the trend of planting Cabernet and Merlot, these wines are the ultimate expression of indigenous grape varieties.
