Monumental, there is no better word to describe this vintage. Roundness in every single aspect of the wine: elegance, freshness and great acidy that gives very fine layers surprisingly detectable on the nose and at the first sip. Colore 2019 celebrates my 20th anniversary as a winemaker. It has been a great journey since 2000, full of satisfactions and now with this vintage I finally close the circle. My wines at the beginning were looking for structure and concentration, in 2009 I realized that "elegance" should have been the main drive. In 2019 I did it!

Dressed for a party, the Bibi Graetz 2019 Colore celebrates the estate's 20th anniversary with a special commemorative (2000-2019) bottle. This vintage of Colore is 100% Sangiovese (the small part of Colorino in the blend we saw last year has been removed) because Bibi thought the Sangiovese elegant enough to stand alone. Fruit comes from three vineyard sites with 70-, 80- and 90-year-old vines, respectively. The wine offers big intensity and beautifully lifted aromas and more textural support than we saw in the slightly thinner 2018 vintage. The bouquet reveals balsam herb, cassis, pressed rose, garden mint and crushed stone. Fruit from the southern-most site, Poggio Matto in Casciano del Murlo (in the province of Siena), was blended in at a greater percentage to help build the structure and momentum of this cellar-worthy wine.

Forest berry, camphor, toasted nut and floral aromas lift out of the glass on this linear red. The elegantly structured, focused palate features juicy red cherry, blood orange, espresso and star anise alongside taut, refined tannins. It's balanced, with fresh acidity.

This red blossoms with air, revealing cherry, currant, earth and spice matched to an elegant frame. Balanced and fresh, with a firm, persistent finish that evokes fruit, mineral and savory notes. Decant now. Drink now through 2028. 2,000 cases made, 250 cases imported.
