Winemaker's Notes

"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.

Critical Acclaim

"Blackberry and black cherry notes are accented by tobacco and spice in this concentrated red. Fresh and lively, with a firm finish. This should develop nicely. Best from 2013 through 2018."

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.

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.

For a stint in the 70s and 80s, wines labeled Chianti contained cheap red wine packaged in a straw casked bottle, most popular for the candle holder it would become. But no more. Sangiovese re...
