Winemaker Notes

Merlot and Cabernet Franc in equal parts, from low crop yield and strong character. The fruitful Merlot intersects the balsamic notes of Cabernet Franc, connecting spicy and mint accents with cherries, blueberry and currant.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
This wine shows an impeccably precise and detailed bouquet. The 2014 Merlot Cabernet Franc Altrovino represents the two grapes in equal parts. Starting with the 2015 vintage, this wine will be partially aged (15%) in large Tuscan clay amphora. This vintage, however, is refined in traditional cement vats and 3,000-liter oak casks. The results are beautiful and polished with bright aromas of wild berry, sour cherry, prune, spice and leather. I was very attracted to that subtle touch of fine mineral or talc powder that adds an even greater sense of finesse and elegance on the close.

James Suckling
This blend of merlot and cabernet franc is fascinating and so enticing with such intense aromatics and beauty. Medium body, firm and silky tannins and a tight palate. A little austere. But I like the tightness. Aged about a year on old casks. Drink it.

Duemani Winery Image
Duemani is the culmination of the life-long passions of iconic winemaker Luca d'Attoma and his partner Elena Celli. The Duemani project began in 2000 with the purchase of an uncultivated piece of land in Ortacavoli, located on the outskirts of Riparbella at the Tuscan coast, about a 40 minute drive from Bolgheri. The Mediterranean plays a key role in Duemani's particular micro-climate. Standing in the center of this very warm vineyard you feel the cool breeze zip between the rows of fruit. In stark contrast to Bolgheri's flat terrain, the growing area of Montescudaio near Riparbella has an increase in elevation as the flat coastline morphs into low-lying coastal hills.

The estate is certified biodynamic by Demeter. As proponents of the principles of biodynamic farming, the cultivation and care of the vineyard's soil is of the utmost importance to Luca and Elena. They employ various practices throughout the year to stimulate soil vitality and health which in turn provides beneficial nutrients and oxygen to the vines.

The winemaking is done in wooden barrels and cement vats without the use of artificial enological additives. The finished wines reflect the vision of Luca and Elena. Luca has made some of Italy's greatest wines; he is now making his wine.

Legendary in Italy for its Renaissance art and striking landscape, Tuscany is also home to many of the country’s best red wines. Sangiovese reigns supreme here, as either the single varietal, or a dominant player, in almost all of Tuscany’s best.

A remarkable Chianti, named for its region of origin, will have a bright acidity, supple tannins and plenty of cherry fruit character. From the hills and valleys surrounding the medieval village of Montalcino, come the distinguished and age-worthy wines based on Brunello (Sangiovese). Earning global acclaim since the 1970s, the Tuscan Blends are composed solely of international grape varieties or a mix of international and Sangiovese. The wine called Vine Nobile di Montepulciano, composed of Prognolo Gentile (Sangiovese) and is recognized both for finesse and power.
