Giusto di Notri Tua Rita 2012

94 points Antonio Galloni, vinous.com, September 2014:

A dark, brooding wine, the 2012 Giusto di Notri presents a compelling array of dark stone fruits, grilled herbs, smoke, tobacco and menthol. The power of Suvereto and these Bordeaux varieties are both super-expressive in a virile, imposing wine loaded with personality and gorgeous, totally resonant fruit. This is a terrific showing.

94 points James Suckling:

Gorgeous aromas of spices, from chili powder to dried thyme, plus dark fruits such as currants and berries. Full body, fine tannins and layers of fruit and flavor. Very attractive now but even better in two or three years. This commemorates the 20th anniversary of this wine. Balanced blend of cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc and merlot.

94 points Wine Enthusiast:

Made with Cabernet and Merlot, this offers scents of cedar, black currant, graphite and aromatic herb. Notes of licorice, ground pepper and tobacco accent the core of crushed blackberry and black cherry while polished tannins provide the framework. The lingering finish ends on a tobacco note.

93 points Robert Parker:

The 2012 Giusto di Notri is an IGT Toscana blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. It opens with rich, impenetrable concentration and luminous ruby highlights that shine bright against the inner darkness of this beautiful wine. Dark fruit, leather, spice, moist chewing tobacco and dark chocolate lift from the glass. The wine shows firm structure with silky tannins that render a polished texture on the finish.

HK$250HK$230

Allegrini La Grola, Veronese IGT 2013
產區:Veneto, Italy
品種:90% Corvina , 10% Oseleta

Ageing: 16 months in oak, then blended together for 2 months followed by 10 months of bottle-ageing

92 pts James Suckling:  More cabernet coming out on the nose with dark berries and light chocolate. Full body, lightly chewy tannins and a flavorful finish. Shows length and intensity.

91 pts Wine Advocate:

The 2013 La Grola represents a blend of 90% Corvina Veronese and 10% Oseleta. Past editions saw a small part Syrah but this is no longer the case. The wine's appearance is rich and deeply saturated with an inky black color. The bouquet revs up slowly with black prune and plum followed by spice, tar, road paving and cured meat. The effect is extra thick and dense. In the mouth, La Grola displays syrupy richness with both savory and slightly sweet mahogany spice. The wine rests in once-used barrique for 16 months.

90 pts Wine Spectator:

Well-spiced and herbaceous, this well-meshed red frames flavors of ripe currant, espresso, dried fig and smoke with fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity. Harmonious. Drink now through 2021.

Allegrini La Grola, Veronese IGT 2011

產區:Veneto, Italy

Ageing: 16 months in oak, then blended together for 2 months followed by 10 months of bottle-ageing

92 pts James Suckling: This is always an outstanding Veneto red. Lots of dried fruits and hints of raisins and sultanas. Full-bodied, chewy and savory. Attractive tannin tension.

90 pts Wine Advocate: The 2011 La Grola (an IGT blend of 80% Corvina Veronese, 10% Oseleta and 10% Syrah aged in neutral oak for 16 months) opens to a velvety, dark appearance and bold aromas of prune, plum, cured meat, bacon fat and mesquite smoke. This is a hearty red wine that would pair next to beef stew or game.

Altesino Brunello di Montalcino 2010

產區:Tuscany, Italy

品種:100% Sangiovese

Altesino, Brunello di Montalcino 2010 (JS95/RP93) 表現得比較陰柔,有香草、香料類等比較複雜的香氣,口感細滑、優雅,有點飄逸, 可能因為我們習慣了 Brunello 的濃妝,北區的淡然看上去更似素顏、更具風土。 Altesino位處Montalcino 北區的。因北區比較涼,常常比中、南部的酒較圓潤或者平衡,更多風土的特點。然而,北區從來都是這個出名產區最不起眼的後花園,因為長久以來,當紅酒評人把光環全加在中、南部酒莊的頭上。 

95 points James Suckling (Dec 2014):  Wonderful decadent aromas of musk, orange peel and plum follow through to a full body, with soft tannins and a long and rich finish. Salty and savory. Layers of gorgeous fruit. Drink or hold. 

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (Feb 2015):  Altesino's 2010 Brunello di Montalcino stands proud among its peers. No other wine I tasted among the new releases in Montalcino achieves this unique level of aromatic finesse and distinction. The bouquet is almost purely floral in character with a strong emphasis on pressed rose petal, dried violets and potpourri. The fruit tones are less emphatic and include bright cherry and red currant. In the mouth, the wine's compressed texture is accented by fennel seed and licorice. the 2009 vintage had more power and heat, but this version shows elegant restraint. 93+ (ML) 

93 points Wine Spectator (Jun 2015): Expressive aromas of eucalyptus, juniper and wild rosemary give way to sweet berry flavors, though the juniper, rosemary and emerging mint accents linger. This is like a walk in the woods, with a fresh, elegant frame. Best from 2017 through 2030.

紅桑果、野莓果香,香料及橡木香氣。有中等的丹寧及強勁的酸度,葡萄乾及成熟野莓果醬的味道,與大部分Sangiovese 一致,整體酸度高,適合配合意粉及薄餅等食物。 Rosso di Montalcino is deep ruby red in colour. It is medium bodied with a good concentration on the mid-palate. Elegant in the mouth, it is well balanced with tempting flavours of red berries, violets, menthol and earthiness.A generous wine with smooth, velvety tannins that will satisfy all Sangiovese lovers. The perfect companion at mealtimes, it is ideal paired with red meat, veal, bruschetta and all kinds of cheeses andpasta dishes

Azelia Barolo 2012

產區:Piedmont DOCG , Italy

品種: 100% Nebbiolo

93 Points James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, March 2016:

Wonderful aromas of spices and berries. Chili powder with plums. Chinese spices. Full body, ultra-fine tannins and delicious fruit. Pretty tannin and fruit tension. Drink or hold.

90 Points Antonio Galloni, vinous.com, March 2016:

Azelia's 2012 Barolo is fresh, floral and nicely lifted in the glass. Crushed flowers, sweet red cherries, spices, mint and rose petal lift from the glass in the 2012 Barolo. An excellent choice for drinking over the next handful of years, Azelia's straight Barolo is all about balance and understated harmony. The style is gracious, perfumed and weightless, with pretty saline notes that give the wine its sense of proportion. This is one of the best straight 2012 Barolos I tasted. Fruit sources are 70% Serralunga and 30% Castiglione Falletto. The 2012 spent two and a half years in cask. Hail was an issue in Bricco Voghera, so Azelia did not produce a Riserva. All the best fruit went into the straight Barolo.

Barbaresco Produttori del Barbaresco 2010

產區: Piedmont, Italy
品種: 100% Nebbiolo

92 points James Suckling (April 2014):

Beautiful aromas of white truffles, plums and berries. HInts of spices. Full to medium body with fine tannins and beautiful licorice, berry and fennel seed. Very pretty length. Drinkable now but better in 2015. 

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar (December 2013):

(as the Produttori has declassified its crus in 2010, there will be 28,000 cases of this blend): Tangy cherry and raspberry aromas are lifted by flowers and mint on the cool, inviting nose. Silky-sweet and floral, with lovely inner-mouth juiciness to its red berry flavors. Owing to the wine's moderate body and flesh, the tannins show a slightly dryness but the long, juicy finish offers enticing floral perfume. A lovely, sharply delineated Barbaresco at a very reasonable price.

Barbaresco Produttori del Barbaresco 2012 產區: Piedmont, Italy 品種: 100% Nebbiolo 93 Points Wine Spectator - "A graceful and detailed red, marked by ripe cherry, strawberry, floral and tar flavors, with the fruit intensity persisting on the finish, showing excellent length. This is well-integrated and just needs time for the tannins to soften. Best from 2018 through 2030." 92 Points Vinous / Antonio Galloni - "A big, powerful wine, the 2012 Barbaresco hits the palate with surprising depth allied to nervous tannins that are going to need time to soften. Tobacco, smoke, licorice, menthol, game and a host of dark, ferrous notes give the wine much of its virile personality. The 2012 is not as finessed as some recent vintages, yet it offers considerable potential for the future. Most importantly, it is a terrific value at a time when well-priced Barbaresco is increasingly hard to find. In 2012, the Produttori did not bottle their Riservas. When that happens, the straight Barbaresco is often an overachiever. That is certainly the case here, as the 2012 offers outstanding quality for the money, with plenty of potential for the future. I can't think of too many wines that deliver this much pleasure and value."

Barbaresco Riserva Pora, Produttori del Barbaresco 2008

產區:Barbaresco, Piedmont, Italy

品種: 100% Nebbiolo

95 Points Antonio Galloni, Wine Advocate (203), October 2012:

Playing true to type, the 2008 Barbaresco Riserva Pora is another of the more open wines in this vintage. But that is only in relative terms. Layers of expressive red fruit, crushed flowers and spices flesh out in this radiant Barbaresco. In most vintages the Pora is one of the more accessible of the Riservas when young. The close proximity of the vineyard to the Tanaro River results in a warm microclimate that ripens the fruit earlier than elsewhere. In 2008, though, the Pora packs a serious punch. The coolness of the late harvest comes through in a finish laced with considerable tension and minerality. This is easily one of the very best Poras I have ever tasted from the Produttori. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2048.

95 points Wine Spectator (2007):

Shows fabulous aromas of crushed berries and fresh flowers. Full-bodied, with a powerful palate of fabulous fruit and ripe tannins. Goes on and on. Still a baby. This is superb.--1996 Piedmont retrospective. Best after 2010. (JS, Web-2007)

94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar (Nov 1998):

Even deeper red ruby color. Pungently spicy, penetrating aromas of rose petal, violet and red berries. Thick, intensely flavored and sharply delineated, with strong acidity and plenty of buffering extract. This has superb material and outstanding grip and persistence. Firm tannins are in perfect balance with the wine fruit. Wow! This is aged in all new barriques, but I never would have guessed it. 94+ (ST)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (Aug 1999):

 The large-scaled as well as compelling 1996 Barbaresco Vigneto Brich Ronchi reveals spectacular aromas of intense chocolate-covered cherry candy intermixed with smoky new wood. It is dense and full-bodied, with layers of concentration and glycerin. This superb, mouth-filling Barbaresco can be drunk now or cellared for 10-15 years.

Barbera d'Alba "Ceretto" Roberto Voerzio 2013

產區:Alba, Piedmont, Italy

品種:100% Barbera

“如果不是那些勇敢的生產者減少產量,把精力花在提高意大利葡萄酒的品質上,我們可能永遠不會知道巴貝拉(Barbera)如此美味、複雜、擁有如此巨大的陳年潛力。但是Roberto Voerzio的不僅令自己的名字聞名於世,也印證了Barbera不僅僅是美食的陪伴,更能做到令人刮目相看。 Roberto Voerzio釀造每一款酒都非常的“瘋狂”,這支Barbera也不例外。產量極低,每珠葡萄藤的產量僅有1kg,它的風格深邃細膩,集中度高,同時又有純淨的果香,超長的陳年潛力!

如果你是意粉,一定聽過Roberto Voerzio的大名,他是“醉”好的Barolo釀酒師之一。你絕不會將Voerzio與其他酒莊混起來,因為每一瓶Voerzio中都可以喝到他狂熱的“工匠精神”。 近乎偏執地追求著品質及Barolo地區的風土表現,如果結果不能令他滿意,他寧願選擇放棄。通過嚴格的產量控制和對風土的虔誠,他讓Nebbiolo和Barbera綻放出了前所未有的耀眼魅力。
Taste :濃郁的櫻桃風味,還有絲滑的牛奶巧克力味道,香氣直接開放。口感也是一致直接,飽滿但不覺得肥膩,酒體集中,令人印象深刻。

90 points Antonio Galloni: The 2013 Barbera d'Alba Cerreto is absolutely delicious, and another reminder of just how special this vintage is for Barbera. In 2013, the Cerreto is a bit brighter than it usually is, with plenty of supporting acidity and fabulous overall balance.

Biondi Santi Tenuta Greppo Annata Brunello di Montalcino 2011

93 Points Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous, February 2016:

The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino Annata is silky, soft and open-knit, especially within the context of what has been the norm at Biondi Santi for the last few decades. Freshly cut flowers, red berries and mint all open up in the glass, but it is the wine's decidedly mid-weight structure that truly stands out. The 2011 is a very rare young Biondi Santi that will drink well pretty much upon release, as shocked as I myself am to write those words. The bright red cherry, raspberry and floral overtones have an almost Nebbiolo-sense of brightness. Drink 2017-2031

93 Points Monica Larner, Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate Feb 2016:

Jacopo Biondi Santi was already making wine at Il Greppo when the 2011 Brunello di Montalcino Annata was produced. His father, Franco Biondi Santi, would pass away in 2013 at the age of 91. The winemaking approach is unchanged despite the father to son transition. This wine shows extra richness and texture with focused fruit aromas that are graceful but also powerful. There are hints of ripe fruit with dried cherry and prune buried deep within the bouquet. In the mouth, this Brunello shows good structure and acidity with a slightly denser feel compared to past vintages.

Casanova di Neri Brunello di Montalcino 2007

95 points Wine Enthusiast:

This 2007 Brunello is a big, opulent pleasure bomb with lavish layers, loaded thickly on top of each other: Chocolate fudge, dark cherry, blackberry preserves, rum cake, prune, exotic spice, pipe tobacco, cola, hummus and leather. It shows huge personality, intensity and staying power too. All that density is backed by solid tannins and a steady firmness. Hold 10–15 more years. Editors' Choice

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:

The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino bursts from the glass with freshly cut flowers, violets, leather, licorice and black cherries. Firm underlying tannins lend vibrancy to the voluptuous fruit. The Casanova di Neri straight bottling – sometimes referred to as the “white label” – is made from some of the estate’s cooler sites. In 2007 the wine has more depth, fruit and overall harmony than is typically the case. Bright acidity frames the long, polished finish. In short, this is a fabulous wine from Giacomo Neri. Along with the 2006, the 2007 is one the best and most complete vintages I can remember tasting in some time. Most importantly of all, though, it is flat-out delicious. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2027.

91 points Vinous / Antonio Galloni - "Ripe, juicy and explosive on the palate, the 2009 captures many of the best qualities of the year.

Castello dei Rampolla “Sammarco” 2011

Region: Chianti, Toscana, Italy

95 pts James Suckling (Aug 2015):

Aromas of tar, chilis, raspberries and dark chocolate follow through to a full body with super velvety tannins and a long, long finish. Need three years to soften. Another superb blend of sangiovese and cabernet sauvignon from the organic estate in Panzano.

94 pts Wine Advocate (Oct 2015):

The fullness and generosity here is absolutely amazing. The 2011 Sammarco is one of the protagonists of this vintage. In fact, I think Sammarco represents the hot 2011 growing season better than any other wine from the Chianti Classico area. The bend this year is 94% Sangiovese with 6% Merlot (the breakdown between the two grapes is usually 90-10) and the wine is fermented with ambient yeasts. The bouquet is beautifully redolent of dark berry fruit, soft spice, licorice and cola. The wine's overall elegance and length are both impressive.

95 pts Antonio Galloni, vinous.com, October 2015:

The 2011 Sammarco is so youthful it almost tastes like a barrel sample! Dark, rich and inviting, the 2011 possesses notable concentration and depth, with round yet powerful tannins and a surprising level of freshness for the year. A host of black cherry, graphite, smoke, plum and lavender notes accompany the powerful finish. It will be quite some time before the 2011 is ready to drink, but there is plenty to look forward to.

Castello di Ama Chianti Classico San Lorenzo 2011

96 points James Suckling:

This has a dusty character on the nose with soil, dried fruit and blueberry. Flowers too. Full body, firm tannins and a fresh finish. Tight and structured. Shows wonderful depth of fruit and beauty. Chewy. Better in 2016.

93 points Wine Enthusiast:

Elegant and structured, this offers aromas that suggest sunbaked earth, ripe woodland berry, chopped mint and a whiff of new leather. The taut, polished palate offers juicy black cherry, ripe raspberry, orange peel, anise and grilled herb alongside austere, fine-grained tannins that give it a firm finish. Drink 2018–2023.

92 points Wine Spectator:

Broad and intense, exhibiting floral, cherry, rhubarb, leather and almond notes. Well-knit and vibrant, with a compact finish. Should stretch out nicely. Best from 2016 through 2026.

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:

The 2011 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione San Lorenzo is loaded tight with ripe fruit nuances of strawberry, black fruit and prune. San Lorenzo shows a riper, jammy quality of fruit next to Vigneto Bellavista. But, like that other Gran Selezione expression, this wine excels in terms of mouthfeel with polished tannins and a great sense of energy and momentum.

Ciacci piccolomini d'Aragona Brunello di Montalcino 2011
產區:Tuscany, Italy
品種:100% Sangiovese
評分:94 points Vinous :
The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino is fabulous. In 2011, proprietor Paolo Bianchini bottled just one Brunello. That commitment to quality comes through loud and clear. Dark cherry, plum, smoke, tobacco and licorice all flesh out in an effortless, incredibly inviting wine. The warmth of the vintage and the natural generosity of these vineyards in Castelnuovo is evident, yet the 2011 possesses remarkable balance to match all of that intensity. I don't expect the 2011 to make old bones, but is gorgeous today. Readers should expect a flamboyant, decadently full-throttle wine built on voluptuousness and generous, racy fruit. Bianchini gave the 2011 three full years in cask. (AG)    (2/2016)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate :
The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino is a very beautiful wine that shows a fraction of good things to come. Very fruit-driven at the moment, it should flesh out further with time. Evident fruit underlines the warm growing conditions of this vintage. You get dark cherry, raspberry, dried strawberry and plum. The bouquet doesn't feel overripe per se, but you definitely get a taste of the warm growing season. Delve deeper, and this Brunello begins to reveal spice, herb, cola, tar and black licorice. These elements form the base of the wine's budding complexity. As nice as this wine is to drink now, I look forward to trying it five years from now. (ML)    (3/2016)

Cogno Barolo Ravera 2011

95 points Wine Spectator (Dec 2015):

*Highly Recommended* A clean, focused style, this red shows warmth, balance, structure and complexity, offering classic rose, cherry, tar and tobacco aromas and flavors. with plenty of fruit. Features a fine, intense aftertaste of cherry, mineral and tobacco. Best from 2019 through 2033. 

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (Jun 2015):

The 2011 Barolo Ravera does a terrific job of portraying the soft and rich side of the vintage with a slightly more accessible style. The wine opens to dark extraction and bright cherry flavors with spice, tobacco, black truffle, pressed rose petal and licorice. It shows a youthful, vibrant personality with a pristine varietal voice. If you are looking for an opulent, caressing Barolo, this wine fits the bill. The Ravera vineyard is planted to 50-year-old vines that hold up very nicely in warm vintages such as 2011. It has the natural structure and heft necessary for longer aging. (ML)

93 points Vinous (Mar 2015):

The 2011 Barolo Ravera emerges from the oldest vines on the property. Dark cherry, plum, spice, new leather and lavender swirl around the glass in a resonant, generous Barolo that captures the generosity of the year as seen through the lens of Ravera. In this vintage, the Ravera is an especially weightless and simply impeccable in its overall balance. Hints of leather, sweet spices add nuance on the soft yet energetic finish. There is so much to like here. (AG)

ST96/RP95/JS95/vivino4.4(342酒評)

96 pts ST (May 2017) &
(International Wine Cellar 2017 Top 100 wines): 

The 2010 Valpolicella Superiore is a utterly fascinating wine from Dal Forno in this vintage. Composed from 70% Corvina and Corvina Grossa, 20% Rondinella, 5% Croatina, 5% Oseleta, the selected grapes are then placed in plastic plateaux and are left to rest for 45 days in large open rooms, where an innovative ventilation system helps maintain an elevated and thorough air flow. After the racking process, the Valpolicella rests for a few days in stainless steel tanks and subsequently is placed in new barriques to mature for 36 long months. The result is a wine which displays a pitch dark, inky color, followed by complex aromatics of ripe black currants, black cherries, mission figs woven together with espresso, grilled herbs, bittersweet chocolate, graphite and some earthy loam and straw characteristics all taking shape in this seductive Valpolicella. On this palate this is full-bodied with beautifully polished tannins and remarkable overall structure and balance, with impressive minerality at it core. It all comes together beautifully on the long, expansive finish which lingers on and on. It seems as if this wine continues to improve in quality each vintage, and the 2010 is the most compelling Valpolicella I have ever tasted from the estate. Overall, this is another total success from the Dal Forno Family. (Best 2019-2030)

Domenico Clerico Barolo "Aeroplanservaj" 2008 set x 6 bottles 一套6種標籤,原木箱 RP95/WS92

Domenico Clerico Barolo "Aeroplanservaj" 2008

這款酒“Aeroplan Servaj”在Piemont方言中表示“像飛機一樣狂野”(wild airplane),暗指莊主Domenico Clerico的成長歷程,因為在其父親的眼中,Clerico自少年起就是一個不安於室的野小子,他個性勇敢,有著天馬行空的想像力,從不畏懼打破故鄉朗格山世代遵守的傳統。Aeroplan Servaj系列擁有6個不同的酒標,每個都有一種airplane之意。所用葡萄產自酒莊位於Serralunga村的租借葡萄園,平均樹齡25歲,佔地1.4公頃,年產量6000瓶。24個木桶陳年(30% new - 70% used)+ 2年瓶內陳年。

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:

The 2008 Barolo Aeroplanservaj puts on a whole different act. Here, the emphasis is on elegance and finesse. The opulence and massiveness of the wine fits in with the Clerico philosophy, but unlike the Barolo Briccotto its strongest cards are played with a more subtle strategy. The aromas of black fruit and spice are wrapped a bit tighter, and the wine shows some nervous tension in the glass that needs to soften with age. I loved those delicate sprigs of mint and wild flower that somehow emerge from the inner depths of this rock-solid wine. Terrible mudslides in 2009 damaged the Badarina vineyard in Serralunga d’Alba and Clerico did not produce the Aeroplanservaj that year. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2030.

92 points Wine Spectator:

This is fresh and racy, with a base of granular tannins buoying the cherry, menthol and balsamic notes. Long and spicy, this is balanced on the tannic side. Best from 2016 through 2028.

Domenico Clerico Barolo Ciabot Mentin Ginestra 2009

品種:100% nebbiolo. 年產 5500 支, 16 months barrique, constant tastings allow us to select the best barriques, then assembling barrel.
16 months in barrel (50 hL), +2 years bottles.

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (Jun 2013):

One notch down on the intensity ladder is the 2009 Barolo Ciabot Mentin. Less obvious and definitely more flirtatious, this gorgeous wine playfully dangles subtle hints of licorice, dark fruit, anisette and Middle Eastern spice in front of your nose. They morph and transform into something new and unexpected with each swirl of the glass. There’s enough flesh here to keep the wine grounded, but there’s also enough tonic freshness to keep it from feeling heavy.

93 points James Suckling (Jan 2014):

A beautiful ripeness of fruit here with dried strawberries and sliced mushroom aromas. Full body, with polished and round tannins and a cedar, mahogany and dried berry aftertaste. Needs at least two or three years of bottle age.

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar (April 2014):

Medium red. Less roasted than the Briccotto, offering aromas and flavors of cherry, mocha, coffee and spices. Less fat and full in the mouth but shows more lift and energy. A bit youthfully clenched, but the wine's firm tannic spine and impressive length suggest it will be a beauty with a few years of aging. Despite being situated at high altitude, these are the first Barolo vines Clerico picks. The acidity here is a very healthy 6.3 grams per liter.

92 points Wine Spectator:

A fresh, vibrant red, whose eucalyptus, tea, cherry and leather notes are backed by dense, ripe tannins. Balanced on the firm side, with a coating of dusty tannins on the long finish. Give this some time. Best from 2017 through 2032.

18/20 points Jancis Robinson (Jun 2013):

Commune of Monforte d’Alba. Concentrated ruby with orange tinges. Balsamic fruitcake and cardamom skin. Fine cherry fruit with a layer of coating tannins. Intense, long and with a hint of vanilla. Quite spectacular and modernist but executed with huge skill.

Duemani 2004

Luca d'Attoma is a highly respected Tuscan wine consultant, employers have included Azienda Agricola Le Macchiole in Bolgheri and Tua Rita, who, along with wife Elena Celli, eventually realised a dream to produce his own wine. Luca and Elena are the Duemani 'two hands' that run the estate. They first identified a wonderful site in the north Bolgheri hills in the mid nineties. The purchase 7 ha of land and set about preparing the soils for Biodynamic viticulture. This took seven years. The first vines were planted in 2001 and already, by the 2008 vintage, they have started to make some outstanding wines. The structure of the soil here is remarkable for its predominance of clay and stone – the resulting low soil fertility leading to greater character and complexity in the vines fruit. After an examination of the property and its unique position in the contour of a west-facing amphitheatre there emerged the sites of three distinct vineyards. The vineyard at the highest altitude and with the richest soil is the site of their Cabernet Franc vines. Another lower vineyard continues with the same varietal and then evolves into rows of Merlot vines. The third and smallest   vineyard, notably stony and arid, is the 'heart' of the estate and is planted to 7000 vines of alberello-trained Syrah. From the very beginning Duemani have followed the principles of biodynamic farming and since the 2004 harvest their estate's production.

Full body with super-fine tannins and a long finish. Tannins and all in place. Wonderful texture. Better in 2016 but hard not to drink now. 60% cabernet sauvignon, 35% merlot and 5% syrah.
