‘Colore’ Toscana Rosso IGT 2016 – Bibi Graetz
The Colore Toscana Rosso IGT 2016 by Bibi Graetz has an intense and brilliant ruby red color, the nose unravels an elegant bouquet that deep intense notes of ripe cherries and blackberries enhanced by a counterpoint of delicate nuances of leather, cloves and roasting notes.
On the palate it presses with a very thick, penetrating and silky tannic texture mitigated in a harmonious balance by a vibrant acidity of backbone, giving freshness and reminiscent of blood orange. It opens for a harmonious, balsamic finish with a very long persistence.
