Bibi Graetz Casamatta Rosato

Toscana IGT, Tuscany

In Italian, Casamatta translates to "crazy house". This moniker, self-designated by super-Tuscan winemaker, Bibi Graetz, is an homage to his very home-cum-winery-cum-art gallery. This fantastic place serves as home, winery, and art studio complete with kids, farm animals, barrels, grapes, and colorfully painted canvasses. Hence, Casamatta is a place where chaos meets life in a place where love of family, love of winemaking, and love of art all take place. It is here, where Bibi artfully crafts his Casamatta wines.

Tasting Notes

Bright acidity and soft, subtle aromas of crabapple, watermelon, raspberry, strawberry, and wet stone. This vintage is concentrated, earthy, crisp, and dry with composed structure.

The grapes undergo 12 to 24 hours of maceration with skin contact followed by gentle pressing and fermentation at low temperature in stainless steel tanks for 7 to 10 days. Aged in stainless steel.

100% Sangiovese

Sourced from vineyards between 10 and 15 years old and trained in the Guyot system.

Bibi Graetz’s Casamatta line, which literally translates to “crazy house”, carries its own unexpected equanimity. While the name serves as an homage to the chaotic albeit beautiful place where Bibi crafts the wines, including this fresh Toscana Rosato, it also serves as a reminder that, while Bibi is well-known for his iconic Super-Tuscan wines, he spares nothing when crafting these approachable, ready-to-drink, everyday wines, too.
