2012 Duemani "Duemani" Toscana
The clarity and beauty to this wine are breathtaking. The aromas of peaches, orange peel, blueberries and blackberries are truly amazing. Full body, phenomenal depth of fruit and silky tannins. There is polish and finesse, yet the strength is monumental. Better in 2018 but why wait? Demeter certified as biodynamic.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The lovely 2012 Duemani is a wine that will show its potential further down the road. This warm vintage expression is muscular and compact at this initial stage in its evolution. It needs more years of bottle aging to unwind and soften. You certainly get a whiff of that profound potential on the horizon. Impenetrable fruit, blackberry, prune and cherry liqueur is trailed by oak spice, barbecue smoke and campfire ash. The oak element is very strong and not fully integrated yet. This is a masterful creation from one of Italy's most talented winemakers. (ML)
The 2012 Duemani has really come together over the last year, but it is still going to need more time for the firm tannins to soften. Today, it is the wine density that stands out most. Pomegranate, raspberry and spice notes abound in a wine that captures the full intensity and radiance of the vintage. Varietal character takes a bit of a backseat in the 2012. It will be interesting to see if more Cabernet Franc notes emerge with further bottle age. (AG)
