Bibi Graetz Colore Rosso

Toscana IGT, Tuscany

Colore is the highest expression of Bibi Graetz dream.  The drive of this wine is to create a pure excellence of Tuscany, a wine made with traditional Tuscan grapes sourced from some of the oldest and rarest vineyards of the region.  Sangiovese represent the structure and the power of the wine, Colorino fruits and velvety tannins, Canaiolo minerality and intensity. On the best few barrels of the whole production will become Colore.

Tasting Notes

"After the 2015 vintage I couldn't believe that the quality of the 2016 was even higher!  Walking in the vineyards during the harvest I had the impression of being in the middle of hundreds of bronze sculptures, the grapes looked like perfect artifacts.  I'm not surprised by the result of the wine, powerful, with a lot of tension and a solid structure.  Full bodied and dense, this Colore has a lot of blackberries, tobacco and plum."  -- Bibi Graetz

This vintage has a very high reputation all over Italy, especially in Tuscany.  2015 and 2016 has been some of the best vintages of the past years, in different ways.  In fact, 2015 is more approachable and less bodied and 2016 has more strength, complexity and structure.  The 2016 growing season has been very regular with a nice balance of rain and sun during spring and a mild winter before.  The vines had the chance to fully develop the vegetation, and the sporadic rains n Summer granted the right amount of water for the development of the grapes.  September and October had only a few days of rain and were mostly sunny allowing a long ripening time and harvest.  Harvest started the 26th of September and finished the 3rd of November.

After the first selection of grapes in the vineyards, a second selection occurs at the winery before the destemming.  The berries were at this stage softly pressed and placed in open-top barriques, with extreme attention on keeping each plot and parcel divided from the others.  The fermentation is conducted by indigenous yeasts naturally with 6 to 8 manual punchdowns per day, without temperature control and without bleedings, and lasted up to 2 weeks, with 1 extra week of maceration on the skins.  After the fermentation the wine is moved into new barriques, where the malolactic fermentation happens.  Every parcel is aged separately for almost 3 years before the final blend is decided.

The grapes sourced for Colore were selected from 3 vineyards: Lamole, Vincigliata and Siena.  Each vineyards was harvest up to 8 times, allowing to hand-pick the grapes at the right maturity point.

Fermentation takes place in open top barrels of 225 liters with 8-10 manual punch-downs per day.

Blend of 34% Sangiovese, 33% Canaiolo, and 33% Colorino

60 year-old vineyards on galestro and clay with a Guyot training system.

    Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator, October 2018

    "Muscular and concentrated, yet with a sense of elegance derived from vibrant acidity, this red displays black cherry, blackberry, leather, iron and tobacco flavors. Consistent from the start to the long finish. Sangiovese, Canaiolo and Colorino. Best from 2020 through 2028. 100 cases imported."

    Monica Larner, Wine Advocate, September 2018

    "The 2012 Colore is on the market now. Production of 2013 and 2014 was skipped, and the next vintage we shall see (very soon) is 2015, which is also reviewed in this report. This vintage produced large berry sizes for Sangiovese—something Bibi Graetz is always happy to see because it is an indicator of elegance and finesse within the context of the house style. If you consider this wine, his observation makes perfect sense. This warm vintage is powerful and rich in its natural state, so any additional berry density might easily lead to overextraction and heaviness. However, the mouthfeel is objectively thinner and more compact in this vintage. Colore represents a blend of Sangiovese, Canaiolo and Colorino in equal parts. The bouquet is redolent of wild berry, dried cherry and toasted spice. This vintage offers a very attractive mineral note as well. Fruit is selected from three of Bibi Graetz's favorite vineyards with ancient vines: Lamole (in Chianti Classico), Vincigliata and Siena. Only 5,000 bottles were made."
