1 x Casamatta Bianco & Rosso (LAST BOTTLING OF EACH!) 1 of each of Bollamatta and the new bottlings: Grilli, Cicale & Casamatta Rosso!
Bibi Graetz is an eccentric artist turned winemaker who has risen to become one of the most celebrated and collectable Tuscan producers (recently scooped 100 Points in Decanter for his top wine Testamatta - Testamatta means 'crazy head'). He has had a label banned in the States for sexual imagery. STSWinos will be intimately familiar with Casamatta and devastated to hear he has discontinued it!! The best value Tuscan red and whites are no more!
We have 1 of each of his Casamatta Bianco, a Vermentino and Ansonica blend and Casamatta Rosso, an elegant 100% Sangiovese (Casamatta means 'crazy house' referring to the big castle he makes his wine in). His 'Grilli' is a Super Tuscan style Cab Franc & Merlot that his much more punch. His Bollamatta (meaning 'crazy bubble) is a pink Spumante Sparkling also made from Sangiovese and interestingly are the green harvest (when the wine maker takes away bunches to boost concentration in the remaining) from his top wine Testamatta - top to tail wine making! His Cicale di Vincigliata is 100% Sangiovese from his famed Vincigliata - the lovers vineyard. The new wine is Casamatta Rosso with new labelling and made in lower production. It comes his a higher price tag, but we are pleased to say that it is worth it. STSWine
