Thumbs up for two hands
24 July 2019

Today we are offering the 2016s from the most exciting project on the Tuscan coast. It is over fifteen years now since Luca d’Attoma, famous winemaking consultant to some of Tuscany’s great wineries, established his own bio-dynamically grown vineyards in hilly Riparbella, inland and just north of Bolgheri. It is fair to say this estate, named Duemani, is now at the top of its game. For us their 2016s better their previous greats, 2013 and 2010.

Luca and his team’s ferocious hard work, attention to detail, skill and investment have had a big hand in 2016’s quality. So, too, has Mother Nature. A very hot July and August, accompanied by northern winds, meant for dry conditions. Two meaningful rainfalls in September restored balance to the vines, allowing ripening to continue. The grapes at harvest time, according to Duemani, “turned out to be of extraordinary quality.” Picking began slightly earlier than usual, on the 15th September for Syrah (Suisassi) and the 25th September for Cabernet Franc (Duemani). The resulting wines are true legends in the making, and it is not just us that thinks so: Monica Larner in the Wine Advocate gives the ‘profound’ Duemani 97 points, and a remarkable 92 points for Duemani’s little sibling Cifra highlighted as one of the “best value wines” in her whole Tuscan report.
