DUEMANI 2011 "CIFRA" CABERNET FRANC

WINE ADVOCATE 90 POINTS - "The 2011 CiFRA is a pure expression of Cabernet Sauvignon (aged in cement) that is slightly less complicated than Altrovino. Black fruit and dried herbs are woven within the wine’s plush, sweet finish. Candied cherry appears as a final endnote. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2022."

The winemaking for Duemani’s delightful Cabernet Franc, “Cifra” is fresh, aromatic and ripe with Tuscan sun to give weight. Cement vats without the use of artificial additives, and no oak! This is bottled sunshine- bright, red cherry flavors with gorgeous silky tannins. The finished wine reflects the vision of pure terroir Luca and Elena.

Azienda Agricola Duemani is the ownership property of superstar winemaker Luca d’Attoma (formerly of Tua Rita, and currently at Le Macchiole, pictured above). This winery is the perfect example of what happens when a world-class enologist finally has the chance to buy his own property. Starting completely from scratch, Luca leveled these rolling hillsides in Riparbella, just next to Bolgheri, and planted his fields mainly with his first love: Cabernet Franc. The passion Luca puts into the wines is obvious, as the project has been entirely organic/ biodynamic from the first day. With no neighboring properties, his vineyards are totally isolated from conventional farming. His vineyard density is unusually high, resulting in fruit of exceptional quality The estate is certified biodynamic by Demeter (http://www.demeter.net). 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
