2018 Bibi Graetz, Testamatta, IGT 6x75cl

DE100
"Finely textured, with a nuanced perfume that fills the glass and takes you to the intense underbrush of Tuscany. Succulent and yet savoury, this has a lilting freshness that is overlaid with ripe... berry fruits, sage and white pepper spice, and clear minerality in terms of its scraping texture that makes your mouth water on the finish. Feels light and sculpted and yet has an intensity that skewers you to the spot. This is a great wine, with scope and imagination that doesn't want to let you go. Genuinely stands out among the wines of this tasting, and these are a fine array of wines. As with Colore, Bibi Graetz selects only old vines, the youngest 50 years old from five different vineyard sites across Tuscany, all farmed organically. Fermentations in open 225l barrels with natural yeasts and manual punch downs." 100 pts., Jane Anson, decanter.com

2018 Castellare di Castellina, Sodi San Niccolo, IGT 1x150cl

WS96
"Lovely abundance and expression on the nose, you get that perfect clarity of fruit - black fruits and blackcurrant laced with violets. Strong, round and rich - this is densely concentrated with... power and punch. Gorgeous texture - dry with firm firm tannins and a direct fruit profile - tension and linearity yet there's plushness and ripeness here too. It's round yet direct but also sweet and succulent. I love that immediately juicy perfumed hit you get on the tongue, such brightness and energy here, the sweet red cherry edge is so delicious. Supremely charming but also fun, such playfulness going on with the flavours and the textures." 96 pts., Georgina Hindle, www.decanter.com

2020 Petrolo, Galatrona, IGT 6x75cl

RP96
"The Petrolo 2020 Galatrona is a pure expression of organic Merlot and the estate's headline wine. It was first created in 1994 when Luca Sanjust's second child, Lucia, was born. Despite the summer... heat that became a challenge for winemakers in many corners of Tuscany, Galatrona shows terrific results in 2020. The vineyard is located in a cool and thickly forested position almost exactly between Florence, Arezzo and Siena. The vintage has a classic quality with a subtle bouquet that grows in intensity as the wine opens in the glass. Aromas of cherry, toasted almond and dried mint fuel a long and very elegant finish. The oak tannins are soft and sweet, and the wine boasts long-lasting flavors." 96 pts, Monica Larner, Wine Advocate, Issue #261 (June 2022)

2020 Bibi Graetz, Colore, IGT 3x75cl

RP96
“The Bibi Graetz 2020 Colore is a pure expression of Sangiovese all sourced from old vines that are carefully selected in various parts of Tuscany. Much of the fruit comes from a high elevation and... cool site in Lamole, or from 70-year-old vines in Bagno a Ripoli or Vincigliata near Fiesole. A small percentage of old vines in Olmo is also used. Bibi has a preference for old vines, and you can taste the lovely depth and complexity that comes through in the Colore. Compared to his other wine Testamatta, this wine has seen fewer stylistic changes over the years, and the goal has always been elegance and finesse. Colore boasts a pretty luminous quality with dark fruit aromas and wild berry. There are hints of licorice and mint as well. Mineral flavors and bright acidity are what set Colore apart.” Drink 2023-2043. 96 pts., Monica Larner, robertparker.com (30/06/2022)

2020 Bibi Graetz, Testamatta, IGT 6x75cl

RP95
“Bibi Graetz has long been tinkering with his formula for this wine, and this vintage represents a new chapter. The 2020 Testamatta is a blend of Sangiovese from old and new vines, with a priority... on cooler growing conditions (and even a few northern exposures). In the wake of climate change, and in the pursuit of elegance, Bibi is changing his approach. He also has a new vineyard property near Fiesole, and the introduction of these grapes (from a breezy, high-elevation site) are what gives Testamatta its beautiful clarity, sharpness and lifted bouquet. The new Fiesole fruit makes up about 30% to 35% of this wine. The results are vibrant, transparent and fresh both in terms of acidity and aromatic intensity. This is a wine in transformation and a wine to watch.” Drink 2023-2043. 95 pts., Monica Larner, robertparker.com (30/06/2022)

2020 Guidalberto, Tenuta San Guido, Toscana 6x75cl

JR16.5
"With much sunshine on Bolgheri we can expect much warming opulence on the palate and a richness finely countered by that Graves-like freshness and minerality San Guido’s terroir imbues. Classic,... dark cherry fruit, violet florals, dense, vibrant purity, full-bodied and beautifully balanced, this corresponding ripeness and vigour in the 2020 will provide sublime drinking pleasure over the next several years."

2018 Guidalberto, Tenuta San Guido, Toscana 6x75cl

"San Guido’s 2018 Guidalberto is soft, open-knit and inviting. Sweet dark cherry, cinnamon, licorice and new leather fill out the layers in an undeniably attractive Guidalberto that will drink... beautifully upon release. Finesse and elegance are the signatures. The 2018 is a terrific choice for drinking now, while some of the more powerful vintages of Guidalberto come together, or while waiting for its sibling, Sassicaia." 92, Antonio Galloni, www.vinous.com

2019 Guidalberto, Tenuta San Guido, Toscana 6x75cl

JR17
"Mid ruby with a touch of sediment – a sample blend, rather than a finished wine, as with the last two release presentations. Quite reticent on the nose, just giving hints of what it’s got – a... flash of creamy vanilla, a scent of ripe, plummy, black fruit and some toasted tobacco. Full bodied, with mouth-coating but fine-grained tannins. Plump and velvety – Merlot making its presence felt here. Pretty good length too. This is embryonic and a little closed, but I think has plenty to give – an attractive Guidalberto that will reward cellaring." 17 pts., Tim Jackson MW, jancisrobinson.com

2018 Mazzei, Chianti Classico, Fonterutoli Gran Selezione 6x75cl

A beguiling mix of Morello cherries, evolving onto richer notes of blackcurrant yet lifted by floral and spicy notes, the expressive nose is followed onto the palate by a medium-bodied,... silky-textured, balanced offering of red cherries and smoky winter spice. Structured with fruit-coated tannins and juicy acidity, there is impressive freshness given the power of the sunny 2018 vintage. Wonderful harmony here, and excellent length. Mr Wheeler note

"The purity and polish here shows wonderfully the moment you stick your nose in the glass, with complex aromas of plums, berries, cedar and violets. It’s full-bodied and ever so refined with... elegant and intense tannins that take you deep into the wine. This is a thoughtful and finely crafted Brunello that needs time to show you its greatness. From organically grown grapes. Try after 2024." 98 Points, James Suckling (Nov, 2021)

2016 La Magia, Brunello di Montalcino 6x75cl

VM91
"The 2016 Brunello di Montalcino from La Magia keeps you coming back to the glass, displaying musky cherries dusted in shavings of cedar and pine, with hints of candied orange in the mix. It’s... silky in feel with sweet red fruits and spices further accentuated by vibrant acids. Fine tannins come forward through the close; yet energy remains high, as this fruit-forward and seductive Brunello tapers off to hints of cinnamon and clove” 91 pts., Eric Guido, vinous.com
