“This is so perfumed and seductive, with blackberries, cherries, dried flowers and perfume. It’s full-bodied and tight with very fine tannins. Really structured and long. Superb tannin texture. So fine, yet so powerful. This is an incredible combination of fruit and structure. Old-vine magic. Drink after 2026.”

“This is one of the wines of the tasting, a real showstopper that captures your interest and holds it all the way… A real success.” Georgina Hindle – 10/09/21

Dressed for a party, the Bibi Graetz 2019 Colore celebrates the estate's 20th anniversary with a special commemorative (2000-2019) bottle. This vintage of Colore is 100% Sangiovese (the small part of Colorino in the blend we saw last year has been removed) because Bibi thought the Sangiovese elegant enough to stand alone. Fruit comes from three vineyard sites with 70-, 80- and 90-year-old vines, respectively. The wine offers big intensity and beautifully lifted aromas and more textural support than we saw in the slightly thinner 2018 vintage. The bouquet reveals balsam herb, cassis, pressed rose, garden mint and crushed stone. Fruit from the southern-most site, Poggio Matto in Casciano del Murlo (in the province of Siena), was blended in at a greater percentage to help build the structure and momentum of this cellar-worthy wine.

Forest berry, camphor, toasted nut and floral aromas lift out of the glass on this linear red. The elegantly structured, focused palate features juicy red cherry, blood orange, espresso and star anise alongside taut, refined tannins. It's balanced, with fresh acidity.

This red blossoms with air, revealing cherry, currant, earth and spice matched to an elegant frame. Balanced and fresh, with a firm, persistent finish that evokes fruit, mineral and savory notes. Decant now. Drink now through 2028. 2,000 cases made, 250 cases imported.
