The yield is up at 40hl/ha, high for these poor limestone soils, and the remarkable clarity of expression that runs right through the delicate but fleshy raspberry and smoke-tinged palate is helped by a pH of 3.5 (compared to 3.6 last year).

2014 Duemani "Altrovino" Toscana (Previously $50)

92 points 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.

(JM, Web Only-2018)" K&L Notes: Winery notes: "This is the 'biggest' wine of the range in terms of body, but it is deftly balanced and elegant. It was fermented and aged for 36 months in neutral French puncheons which subdued the variety a bit; however, there remains a pure varietal signature showing cassis, cedar and carob chocolate aromas. The palate is 'juicy' and a touch 'leafy' with some firmer tannins, and it is structured (even minera ...Read More »
