"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, require no further aging and are totally accessible and enjoyable upon release.
Shows the earthy side of Sangiovese, with loam, iron, cherry and plum flavors. A juicy wine, with upfront fruit and light tannins.
Nice low cost sangiovese.
Now apparently selling by the case, at $8.50 a bottle this is a steal. A great everyday wine and also one that no one would mind bringing a few bottles to a party. It pairs with just about anything.
Smooth & Supple
Very VERY good bottle for the price. Great with pasta!
Fantastic table wine for the price. Great with pasta, even better with steak.
Earthy & Spicy
Pasta > Tomato-base
A good everyday Italian red. Reminds me of the ristorante table wines I had in Italy. A value at this price.
Not bad for the price, but it's one dimensional and quite simplistic. It was much better on day 2 than day 1. Still don't think I'll buy it again.
I didn't enjoy this very much. We paired with a squash ravioli dish which made it tolerable.
