Growing up between canvases and paint brushes in an artistic family, Bibi Graetz has transferred his creativity from paintings to growing grapes and making great wines. The choice of name of the wine “Testamatta” (hothead) exactly reflects his passionate and determined nature.
Great intuition made him understand that the territory of Vincigliata in Fiesole had a potential for the viticulture, which had remained unexpressed for years. Located North-East of Florence, Fiesole soils are mostly made from clay, marl and 'galestro'. It is rich in salts such as phosphorus, potassium and magnesium. The “azienda” owns 4 hectares of old vines and additionally farms another 10.5 hectares.
Old clones of Sangiovese, Colorino, Canaiolo & Malvasia Nera allow the wines to express true Tuscan ‘terra’. The wines are sensitevely made with clarity, focus, defintion and harmony, the hallmarks of these great wines. These wines are becoming increasingly popular due to their very 'Tuscaness' and we are very lucky to have a small allocation to offer for the first time.
