Bibi Graetz, a respected artist born of Italian and Norwegian parents, started Testmatta (meaning “hot head” in Italian) in the late 90’s just outside of Florence in the renaissance town of Fiesole.  At the time his family was faced with losing the lease contracts on some untended old Sangiovese vines that surround his home at the Castello de Vincigliata, or to take the time to recover the vineyard and produce wines.  Naturally Bibi saw an artistic opportunity, and chose to begin production with his first vintage in 2000.

Bibi is known for his artwork throughout Europe, and each label is adorned with his personal work.

Testamatta Toscana is his Super Tuscan offering, though breaking a bit with new tradition for Super Tuscans, this wine is 100% Sangiovese.  Bibi wanted to see what could be done with Sangiovese with judicious use of new French oak, and the result is the creation of a cult classic.  Bibi’s Testamatta Toscana IGT will lay down for quite some time.
