Bibi Graetz Bollamatta
To Bibi Graetz, the NV Bollamatta is all about fun. The wine is crazy fun to make (he tells me) and crazy fun to drink (I can confirm). Made in the Charmat method, this cheerful Italian sparkler is a blend of 90% Sangiovese and 10% Trebbiano. It opens to a pale pink color and delivers large, round bubbles that are tonic and sharp. The bouquet reveals wild berry, citrus and raw almond. The wine is extremely refreshing, and those prominent bubbles serve to brighten and liven up the palate. This wine follows in the footsteps of one of Italy's most irresistible and successful wine trends: the everyday sparkling wine.
A creamy sparkling rosé, with bright acidity married to a delicate range of white raspberry, mandarin orange peel, blanched almond and candied ginger flavors. Lively and hard to stop sipping. Drink now. 1,000 cases made.
