The Bibi Graetz 2018 Grilli is an entry-level blend of Cabernet Franc, Syrah and Merlot that pours from the bottle with a darkly saturated color and visible richness. To the palate, the wine offers generous tones of black fruit, dried blackberry, spice, cedar wood and rum cake. There is a lot to take in with this medium to full-bodied blended red from Tuscany. The wine's fruity richness continues to the palate, and the finish is driven by just enough acidity to add freshness and zest. As the wine opens, you get a hint of spice or savory maple syrup. This wine is very much alive in terms of mouthfeel, and it makes a great near-term drinking choice for a hearty pasta dish with wild boar sauce.
