Altrovino Due Mani 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

#63 of Zachys Wine Spectator Top 100 Predictions of 2008"This is the superbright and fruity, with blackberry, licorice and currant aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, with very refined tannins and a long caressing finish. Balanced and refined. Best after 2011...91" WS 08/08. The entry-level 2006 Altrovino (Merlot and Cabernet Franc) possesses gorgeous aromatics and a richly-textured core of plump dark red fruit. It offers excellent balance and is a very pleasurable wine to enjoy over the next few years. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2011..." WA 07/08.

AltroVino is vinified in cement vats with a rather short maceration at controlled temperatures. Even after racking, this wine is stored and aged in vats of cement. The vineyard at Due Mani are harvested with no chemicals, and all work is done by hand trying to stimulate the energy of the soil and plants. This enables the forces of its elements for fruits that are full of vitality and deeply nourishing. Their vineyards are attended with the utmost care and attention within the regulations, so that Due Mani is one of the few Italian companies to achieve the Demeter certification (The mark DEMETER ensures that ingredients come from crops or farming methods that are biodynamic.)
