DUEMANI 2013 - 92/100

 

2014 ALTROVINO 89/100

The 2014 Altrovino is bold, pungent and expressive, especially for the year. Dark red cherry plum, mocha, grilled herbs and lavender are all pushed forward. Like virtually all wines in this vintage, the Altrovino is a bit slender. Even so, it is nicely balanced. -- Antonio Galloni

2014 CiFRA 87/100

Duemani's CiFra is very nicely done in this vintage. Varietal Cabernet Franc flavors come through nicely in a wine whose only real shortcoming is a lack of structure. Drink this perfumed, Cabernet Franc over the next year or two. -- Antonio Galloni

2013 SUISASSI 94+/100

Duemani's 2013 Syrah Suisassi is impressive. The inclusion of a third of whole clusters adds considerable aromatic lift and nuance to the dark fruit flavors. Lavender, mint, sage, licorice and plum are all pushed forward. Beams of underlying acidity shape the expressive, saline finish. -- Antonio Galloni

2013 DUEMANI 92/100

The 2013 Duemani is cool, reserved and very much closed in on itself, with less of the aromatic and explosive energy it had in barrel. Herb, smoke, black cherry and plum infuse the deep, concentrated mid-palate. There is plenty of richness and persistence, but the 2013 comes across as a bit monolithic and not as delineated as it was a year ago, especially in the aromatics, where focus is lacking. -- Antonio Galloni
