Bugia Bibi Graetz : Fall in Love With This Giglio Wine
The BUGIA is 100% made from Ansonica grapes, coming from vineyards located on the island of Giglio, whose vines have a very high average age (about 80 years). Il Giglio is a small island located in front of the Maremma, in southern Tuscany. Precisely the island Giglio is a mountain in the middle of the sea with three small villages. It measures about 16 sq. Km and has an altitude of about 600 meters above sea level. The quality of the wines coming from this island has been known since the time of the Ancient Romans, who called it „the Green Island“ as it was completely covered with vineyards, who came to take the precious wine of Giglio with their ships to serve it to the court of the Emperors. The island is completely terraced with ancient terraces that date back to prehistoric times. These terraces are one meter and one and a half meters high, and enjoy a uniqueness that makes them unmistakable: it is incredible to think that all this has been done by hand, they are real monuments to the effort and ingenuity of man. All these spectacular natural components, combined with optimal climate and optimal sun exposure and the knowledge of the Bibi Graetz company, contribute to the creation of this extraordinary 100% ansonica white wine. this niche wine from Giglio island is a rarity in the market given the small number of bottles produced.
