"Casamatta," or "crazy house," is Bibi Graetz's creation of a Tuscan-style house wine that is, contrary to its whimsical name, consistently refreshing and seriously delicious. Characterized by balanced acidity and bright, forward fruit, these are uncomplicated, natural wines that are meant to complement foods. Shows the earthy side of Sangiovese, with loam, iron, cherry and plum flavors. A juicy wine, with upfront fruit and light tannins.
"Sweet raspberry jam aromas lead to medium-to-full body, with delicate tannins and a fruity, tangy aftertaste. Sangiovese. "
"It’s hard to find a better value in Tuscany than Graetz’s 2008 Casamatta Rosso. This medium-bodied, juicy red offers plenty of dark red fruit in an accessible style underpinned with a bright accent of acidity. The Casamatta Rosso would make a great house red."
