Tasting Notes and Scores

Wine Advocate
92

The 2005 Suisassi (Syrah) was fermented and aged entirely in 225-liter French oak barrels (70% new), which D’Attoma likes to use for Syrah to give the wine more oxygen during fermentation which he believes softens the texture, sweetens the tannins and reduces the gamey qualities the variety can sometimes yield. This full-bodied, ample Syrah reveals enticing aromas and flavors of roasted coffee beans, spices, plums, earthiness, game and minerals with notable complexity and structure. It is a beautiful, elegant wine made all the more notable by the difficult vintage. In short, this is a terrific effort from Duemani. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2017. (Antonio Galloni)

Shows crushed raspberry, with meat, spicy undertones and new oak. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and loads of ripe fruit. Long and powerful. Not imported into the U.S. Best after 2011. 170 cases made. (James Suckling)
