Duemani Cifra Cabernet Franc 2019
Made with organically grown Cabernet Franc, this opens with aromas of black plum, cedar and Mediterranean scrub. The bright, savory palate offers black currant, rhubarb, ground clove and star anise alongside polished tannins. Drink through 2026.
The 2019 CiFra, 100% Cabernet Franc, is an attractive, mid-weight wine done in a style that exalts freshness. Even so, there is plenty of the natural richness that makes Maremma so compelling. Rose petal, cinnamon and sweet red berry fruit are nicely lifted throughout. CiFra is done with shorter macerations than the flagship wines, aged in cement and bottled before the following harvest, all decisions taken keep the flavors vibrant. That certainly works here.
