We had the privilege to have Luca D'Attoma at the tasting bar of Station Plaza,Luca is a famous Italian enologist with 2 wines that score 100 Points (Perfect Wines).
We tasted the latest Vintages from his own winery:
-Altrovino 2006.-A blend of Cabernet Franc and Merlot 50/50, only produced 40 barrels an small production wine, very aromatic, rich and powerful with a great balance of tannins and fruit.
-Duemani 2005.-An straight C
-Suisassi 2005.- 100% Syrah only 10 barrels produced (3,000 bottles) a tiny production. Full bodied and aromatic wine that really shows a wonderful wine making, you can enjoy it now or for the next 5 years.
Certified 100% Organic and Biodynamic from Demeter
Trailblazing oenologist Luca d’Attoma is probably most well-known to readers for the wines he made at Tua Rita and the wines he continues to make at Le Macchiole, two of Bolgheri’s leading estates. In 2001 D’Attoma and his partner Elena Celli purchased several hectares of land in Riparbella, located in the northern reaches of Maremma. The seven hectares of hillside vineyards, which lie adjacent to Castello del Terriccio on their eastern border, are densely planted and farmed biodynamically. I have been following Duemani for several vintages and these are the first wines where the age of the vines and the winemaking philosophy have begun to yield significant results.
