Testamatta 2019 is the 20th vintage of Bibi Graetz's signature cuvée, which receives an exceptional packaging for the occasion.
Testamatta, “Crazy Head” in Italian – is the best expression to describe Bibi Graetz: a positive, creative and passionate person. Through Testamatta is expressed the purity, minerality and transparency of Sangiovese, from old vines located at the top of hills characterized by very rocky soils. A Super Tuscan made from 100% Sangiovese, the result of a combination of tradition and creativity.
Testamatta 2019 Tasting Note by Bibi Graetz
"Elegance is the word to describe Testamatta 2019. The 20th anniversary of Testamatta is a real milestone, the peak of quality that I have been looking for in my Sangiovese since the first vintage in 2000. Testamatta 2019 is perfectly balanced, with deep layers that reveal incredible complexity." Bibi Graetz
Vinification and aging :
The season has been very stable, with a good balance between humidity and heat. A cold and dry winter. The mild climate gave the grapes exceptional quality
The grapes chosen for the development of Testamatta come from the 5 best plots of the Estate: Vincigliata, Londa, Lamole, Montefili and Siena. Each plot is sub-divided, and manual harvesting takes place up to 8 times to ensure the perfect ripeness of the selected fruits. These 5 old plots, (up to 80 years old for some), are located in different areas in Tuscany Fermentation takes place naturally with indigenous yeasts in open barrels (225L) for the smallest plots with 8 punching down and manual pumping over per day. The aging continues in barrels for 20 months.
