Tasting Notes

"The 2016 Grilli is a blend of 60% Cabernet Franc, 20% Syrah and 20% Merlot (all from vineyards in Chianti) that is fermented and aged in steel vat to preserve the freshness and the fruit-froward nature of the wine. Grilli is also Bibi Graetz's only wine made with Bordeaux or international grapes instead of Italian indigenous varieties. You get great value at this price point especially if you are looking for a mid-weight red for immediate drinking that is intense, soft, ripe and succulent. The wine opens to a beautifully saturated color with dark veins of crimson and inky purple. The bouquet is redolent of blackberry preserves, sour cherry, dark plum, bitter almond and grilled rosemary twig. The finish closes with subtle tones of menthol or medicinal herb. Drink this wine within the next two or three years. Some 30,000 bottles were made." 90+ points Wine Spectator, September 2018
