Greetings From CT Wine Authority

We invite you to visit either of our store locations this Saturday for a taste of this week's featured wines from Tuscany.  Our red selection, Casamatta Toscana from the Bibi Graetz Winery, is a notable newcomer to us.  Growing up between canvases and paint brushes in an artistic family, Bibi Graetz has transferred his creativity from paintings to grapes/vines. Thanks to his passion for wine, which has grown stronger and developed throughout the years, it convinced him that viticulture/winemaking should become his new profession.

Our white wine selection is Casale Falchini Vernaccia di San Gimignano coming to us from a very old and distinguished family in the region.  For many generations the Falchinis were vine growers, cellar masters, and horticulturists. They distinguished themselves in their service to the Medici family in Florence between the XVII and XVIII centuries.


Vineyards at Casale Falchini


Tuscany, Italy



Featured Wines:
Bibi Graetz Casamatta Toscana Rosso 2008 750ML    
sku: 13485

Casmatta Toscana Rosso is a Tuscan wine made from 100% Sangiovese grapes. The Sangiovese grapes come from a variety of young vineyards in different zones of Tuscany such as the Sieci, Siena and Maremma, which showcase the traditional and exquisite terroir of the region. This wine has traditional complexity and roundness, but also reveals a modern fruit forward character.

Wine Spectator: Sweet raspberry jam aromas lead to medium-to-full body, with delicate tannins and a fruity, tangy aftertaste. Sangiovese. Drink now. 15,000 cases made. -JS

Robert Parker: It's hard to find a better value in Tuscany than Graetz's 2008 Casamatta Rosso. This medium-bodied, juicy red offers plenty of dark red fruit in an accessible style underpinned with a bright accent of acidity. The Casamatta Rosso would make a great house red. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2011.

Falchini Vernaccia di San Gimignano 
2008 750ML
Falchini Vernaccia di San Gimignano 2008 750ML
sku: 8517

This white wine is produced from the Vigna a Solatio vineyard at Casale in San Gimignano. The Solatio Vineyard, or in Tuscan 'Vigna a Solatio' is the highest elevated vineyard on the property, one of the first to be replanted in 1976 by Riccardo Falchini. It faces South-South West and receives the most sunlight throughout the year, hence its name.

The wine comes entirely from 100% Vernaccia grapes. It is pleasantly fresh with a hint of green apple and delicate white flowers. It adapts wonderfully to any type of cuisine thanks to the rich mineral content of the wine. This wine with great elegance, a pleasant bouquet and structure is a classic example of Vernaccia. more
