Additional Information on Bibi Graetz Casamatta Bianco

Winery: Bibi Graetz

Varietal: Vermentino

Vermentino grapes are widely grown in many parts of Europe and the New World, and are especially associated with the islands of Sardinia and Corsica, where they make up a majority of the white wine grapes cultivated. Vermentino is highly popular with vintners, as they are very easy to grow and require little specialist attention. Indeed, the vines are famously vigorous, and resistant to disease, meaning that high yields of reliable quality are commonplace in Vermentino vineyards. The wines themselves are usually a pale straw yellow in color, and relatively light in body and alcohol content. They normally hold bright, fresh flavors of green apple and lime, and are much loved for their freshness and zingy, acidic crispness. As such, they are commonly served alongside seafood, and are a highly pleasant wine to drink outside on a sunny day.

Region: Tuscany

The beautiful region of Tuscany has been associated with wine production for almost three thousand years, and as such is one of the oldest and most highly respected wine producing regions in the world. The hot, sunny climate supports quite a wide range of grapes, but the grape varietals most widely grown across this large region are Sangiovese and Vernaccia, both of which are used in the production of Tuscany's most distinctive red and white wines. Cabernet Sauvignon and other imported grape varietals have also flourished there for over two hundred years, but it wasn't until the 1970's and the rise of the 'Super Tuscans' that they were widely used, when the fine wineries of the region began experimenting with Bordeaux style red wines to great effect.

Country: Italy

It isn't difficult to understand why Italy is famed not just for the quality of its wines, but also for the vast variety and range of characteristics found in the wines there. The terrain of the country varies wildly, from the lush rolling green hills and valley of Tuscany, to the sun drenched rocky coasts of Sicily, the mountainous and alpine regions of the north, and the marshy lowlands of the east. Italy really does have a little bit of everything. Combine this huge range of landscapes with an almost perfect climate for grape cultivation, and you have a country seemingly designed for viticultural excellence. The results speak for themselves, and it is clear to see that wine has become an inseparable part of Italian culture as a result of its abundance and brilliance. Each village, city and region has a local wine perfectly matched with the cuisine of the area, and not an evening passes without the vast majority of Italian families raising a glass of locally sourced wine with pride and pleasure.
