“Out of time, out of place, out of mind:
this is Bibi Graetz’s Wine”
“Testamatta - It’s a game”
“...one of Tuscany’s true cult wines. Testamatta.
It’s a pure Sangiovese that has the race and breed of a grand cru
Think of Domaine de la Romanee-Conti’s La Tache”
James Suckling, April 2010
“The finesse and variety of the bouquet, the minerality of his wines
are all due to the age of the vines, well over 30-year old”
Roger Sesto – Civiltà del Bere, Dicembre 2007
“I continue to be impressed with the beautiful wines of Bibi Graetz.
These are higly singular, expressive wines
that merit serious consideration”
The Wine Advocate, August 2009.
“Testamatta arrived with the dawn of the new millennium,
from the persistence of this unusual Character, Bibi Graetz, son of artists, who decided to become a winemaker,
breaking every rule and the ‘bon ton’ of modern enology”
Toscana & Chianti News, 2009
A tuscan strong and pure”
Daniel Thomases - Il Sole 24 Ore
“Bibi is a freak for old vines in Tuscany”
James Suckling, 2010
“An anarchic artist who became winemaker
of frank and sincere wines - just like him”
“We needed Bibi Graetz and the Ansonica from Giglio Island
to create an outstanding white wine in Tuscany.”
Guida ai vini d’Italia dell’Espresso 2006
“...one of Italy’s finest growers...
Bibi Graetz’s wines always make me smile
because they have an almost childlike joy about them”.
The Wine Advocate, June 2008
“ ... the vineyards in Giglio Island are extreme...
it’s impressive to observe the power of Mother Nature in this land...”
“...and we have to admit that “Crazy Heads” have that touch of
uncommon genius. An example?
Just think of Bugia, a white wine from Ansonica grapes
from Giglio Island.”
