REGION Costa Toscana
From 18 year-old vines yielding less than a kilogram of grapes per vine, comes DueMani, the estate’s namesake wine made in tiny quantities. Inky with a vibrant, sparkling ruby color. An enveloping nose with hints of red berry compote, woody sensations, herbal infusions, spices, bitter orange peel, slate, and sylvan overtones. On the palate, it explodes with grace and strength; masterful tannins and invigorating freshness support its endless persistence.
