Bibi Graetz, the sangiovese in all its glory

In two decades since his first vintage release, Bibi Graetz has become one of the brightest lights in Tuscan winemaking. This is primarily thanks to the superb quality of his pure sangiovese. Bibi Graetz draws on old vines, which give his best reds depth and soul. Red grapes are cultivated on the hillsides above Florence and sourced from prime sites in the Chianti Classico region, such as Montefili and Lamole. 

Colore is the highest expression of Bibi Graetz dream, from very old vineyards of Sangiovese. Poor soils mixed with sand and stone and high altitude create the perfect terroir for a wine that tells a lot about Tuscany and its ancient taste. Only the best few barrels of the whole production will become Colore. 

2020 vintage

Bibi Graetz tells you about this vintage: https://youtu.be/AUGM1eLIQwY

Three new elements characterize the 2020 vintage. One is the climate. Our best vineyards have never expressed their self so well as in 2020. The new vineyards in Olmo, which brought an incredible freshness to the wines. It has a magic terroir at 420m high. The third element is the new winery in Fiesole in which we managed to work in more evolved and comfortable way. We have now all the tools we need for creating the Testamatta and Colore that we want.

Tasting notes

“Colore is my first love, my love for the old vines which produce incredible and world class wines. The climate in 2020 has been warmer than usual and gave us a powerful vintage. The combination with our old vines, high altitude and exposure created the magic effect. A wine with a perfect and lively tension where the power of the vintage dances harmonically with the elegance of our vines. We have closed the circle, I think that this year we made the best Colore we’ve ever made” Bibi Graetz

The winemaker has no formal training in wine, nor does he follow any DOC/DOCG regulations. These factors have not diminished his reputation as one of Italy's most gifted and creative winemakers.
