100 points - Decanter. A perfect wine.

Finely textured, with a nuanced perfume that fills the glass and takes you to the intense underbrush of Tuscany. Succulent and yet savory, this has a lilting freshness that is overlaid with ripe berry fruits, sage and white pepper spice, and clear minerality in terms of its scraping texture that makes your mouth water on the finish. Feels light and sculpted and yet has an intensity that skewers you to the spot. This is a great wine, with scope and imagination that doesn't want to let you go. Genuinely stands out among the wines of this tasting, and these are a fine array of wines. As with Colore, Bibi Graetz selects only old vines, the youngest 50 years old from five different vineyard sites across Tuscany, all farmed organically. Fermentations in open 225l barrels with natural yeasts and manual punch downs.



"The elegance of Sangiovese variety is always the main character of Testamatta wine.  This vintage shows how Sangiovese can be fresh, fruity on one hand, elegant, long and persistent on the other.  2018 is rich of blackberries and blueberries, earthy hints and light mineral undertone.  It has a pronounced intensity accompanied by silky and important tannins that make the wine long and persistent.  This Testamatta is persistent and rich of finesse, one of the greatest I have ever made."--Bibi Graetz
