Bibi Graetz Casamatta IGT Rosso

My notes for this wine record it as a Non-vintage 'solera' style wine, where newer wines are added to an average pool - however I now cannot find the original source to back that up.

A varietal Sangiovese, it's savoury with meaty aromatics - hints of lamb and mint. Shows licorice with black fruit rounding the profile. This went down very well at my place, the good lady offering up "glurpy" as her descriptor of choice.

Worked better with food, without it appeared a little thin, with it gained in stature. Regardless it offered a common core of licorice tinged, woody, savoury character - yet with a freshness that enlivened the palate. Light on tannin, good on finish and emptied out of the glass quickly. 89
