2011 Bibi Graetz "Casamatta" Toscana Rosso
Notes of blackberry and black cherry are accented by tobacco and spice in this concentrated red, which is fresh and lively, with a firm finish. Drink now through 2014.
Another fresh and fruity young wine with lovely cherry and lemon character. Medium body, with light tannins and a clean finish. Always excellent value.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2011 Casamatta Rosso is an attractive, juicy wine bursting with sweet red berries, flowers, licorice, mint and spices. It shows lovely body and depth in a fresh, vinous style best suited for near-term drinking. Aging should not be a problem, as I imagine most bottles will be long gone by the time that is an issue. The Casamatta Rosso is a terrific value, too. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2014.
