• "Le Cupole di Trinoro" Rosso Toscana IGT 2018

      “Le Cupole di Trinoro” Rosso Toscana IGT 2018

      Great from the West Coast: Black cherries, spices and notes of tar meet a very multilayered, opulent fruit and a fine-grained tannin. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Bright, noble garnet. On the nose of lush plums, cherries, elderberries and slightly balsamic-spicy tones. Lush and juicy on the palate, showing plenty of concentration without losing its drinkability, salty tannins, with plenty of rich persistence on the finish." Falstaff

      "This is a terrific wine that hits that proverbial sweet spot between excellence and value. The Tenuta di Trinoro 2018 Le Cupole is a blend of 40% Cabernet Franc, 37% Merlot, 13% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Petit Verdot that sees a brief eight months in second and third-passage barrique followed by some additional resting time in cement. This lovely vintage shows dark fruit intensity and richness with cherry, blackberry and plum. There is a touch of sweetness, but the mouthfeel is well constructed and layered with phenolic tightness and tight natural structure that will help it age 10 years or more. Le Cupole is one of the best values found in Tuscany." Robert Parker

    • "Campo di Magnacosta" Cabernet Franc Toscana IGT 2018

      “Campo di Magnacosta” Cabernet Franc Toscana IGT 2018

      Just 2,100 bottles of this 1.5 ha single vineyard Cabernet Franc "Campo di Magnacosta" (a former riverbed with mainly clay, gravel and crushed stone soil) reach the specialised trade and the menus of the best restaurants worldwide. The vines were planted in the mid-1990s and come from Pomerol. In terms of aromatic intensity, Magnacosta is probably the most sensually elegant representative of the house's three great site cabernets. It has great straightness, but somewhat less power and intensity. It subtly combines black fruit aromas with spicy notes, tar and antique leather. It is already silky and elegant and will certainly gain in finesse over the years. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Rich, deep dark ruby. Very compact nose with lots of rich cassis fruit, ripe blackberries, plus some tobacco. Lots of ripe berry fruit on the palate, opens with fine, slightly grippy tannin, earthy notes on the final." Falstaff

      "The 2018 Campo di Magnacosta is ample and expressive, with a real sense of textural breadth that distinguishes it in this range. Super-ripe dark cherry, gravel, mint, spice and leather tones give the 2018 striking complexity. Incisive tannins need time to soften. Readers who can wait will be rewarded with a fabulous, deeply expressive wine. The 2018 Campo di Magnacosta is 100% Cabernet Franc from a site on an old river bed." Vinous

      "Campo di Magnacosta is the lightest and more feminine Cabernet Franc of Trinoro's cru (Magnacosta, Camagi, Tenaglia) based on this grape variety. It is a 1.5 hectare parcel of river gravel and silt on the valley's bottom, where an old stream ate into a hill (hence the name: magna is eat and costa is hillside). It was planted over 20 years ago with cuttings from a vineyard in Pomerol. Intense and elegant on the nose with an intriguing restrained brumble fruit, dried eucalyptus and spices, it combines great fruit definition and creamy palate with tight-knit tannins and lively acidity in background. Warm on the finish, yet well balanced." Decanter

      "This is one of three single-vineyard expressions made by the talented Mr. Franchetti. The Tenuta di Trinoro 2018 Campo di Magnacosta (with only 1,950 bottles released) is powerful and complex. Campo di Magnacosta is also very elegant, showing a slow and careful approach that takes on volume and latitude as the wine opens aromatically. Give it time. Black fruit, Spanish cedar, charred meat, crushed river stone and exotic spice take center stage. The mouthfeel offers a lot of texture and succulence, but the finish is linear and structured. The wine's length ultimately translates into elegance." Robert Parker

    • "Campo di Camagi" Cabernet Franc Toscana IGT 2018

      “Campo di Camagi” Cabernet Franc Toscana IGT 2018

      Just 1,650 bottles of this 1.5 ha Cabernet Franc single vineyard "Campo di Camagi" (mainly quartz and limestone) reach the specialised trade and the menus of the best restaurants worldwide. Campo di Camagi is a very precise and focused wine. The high quality of the Cabernet Franc grape is noticeable here with every sip. Black fruits and spices are in elegant unity here and the full, racy body of this exceptional wine will only fully reveal itself in many years. Please be sure to put this bottle far away! SUPERIORE.DE

      "Deep, dark ruby violet. Initially a bit closed on the nose, then lots of dark berry fruit, especially cassis, black cherry and tobacco. Full and concentrated on the palate, lots of grippy, gripping tannin, still seems a little edgy, needs additional maturity." Falstaff

      "The Tenuta di Trinoro 2018 Campo di Camagi is a pure expression of Cabernet Franc from a two-hectare vineyard site that is farmed to very low yields at no more than six clusters per vine. Only 1,650 bottles were released. Like the others in this three-wine series of single-vineyard expressions, the Campo di Camagi sees a relatively short fermentation at up to 15 days in stainless steel, followed by eight months in new barrique and 10 months in cement. This vintage produces a beautifully lush and sweet bouquet with black cherry and blackberry as the undisputed protagonists. At 16%, you do feel the alcohol content. These sweet fruit aromas cede to pipe tobacco, spice and campfire ash. This wine steps forward in this vintage." Robert Parker

    • "Campo di Tenaglia" Cabernet Franc Toscana IGT 2018

      “Campo di Tenaglia” Cabernet Franc Toscana IGT 2018

      Just 1,900 bottles of this 0.8 ha Cabernet Franc single vineyard "Campo di Tenaglia" (at an altitude of approx. 550 m, mainly limestone) reach the specialised trade and the menus of the best restaurants worldwide. Impenetrable, dark wine with a bouquet of flint, crushed minerals and some chalk. The texture is rich and opulent, but always supple with a hint of minerality. Campo di Tenaglia is one of the juiciest Cabernet Francs we have ever had in the glass. Beautiful, long final and certainly great storage potential. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Deep, dark ruby with violet glints. Concentrated nose, full of ripe plums and cinnamon, dark currant. Salty and juicy on the palate, spreads out richly, lots of tightly woven tannin, entwined with sweet melting, firm pressure on the final, richly tobacco." Falstaff

      "The 2018 Campo di Tenaglia, 100% Cabernet Franc, emerges from a tiny parcel measuring less than a hectare planted on limestone. Intensely floral and saline, the 2018 is bright and vibrant from the first taste, all in a medium-bodied style that offers considerable appeal. Time in the glass brings out a whole range of savory and intensely mineral notes to complement a core of bright red-toned fruit." Vinous

      "Andrea Franchetti's Tenuta di Trinoro 2018 Campo di Tenaglia offers a classic interpretation of variety, vintage and territory. The wine shows the ample abundance and generosity of sunny Tuscany (with a powerful 16% alcohol content), contrasted against the linearity and sharpness of this mighty grape. Some cool spots during the growing season have contributed to the phenolic power of the wine, its lasting structure and the vivid freshness of the aromas. To the palate, this wine is enormously rich and generous with layers of black fruit, smoke, spice and barbecued meat. Among these three wines in the series, the Campo di Tenaglia delivers extra density and concentration." Robert Parker

    • "Palazzi" Rosso Toscana IGT 2018

      “Palazzi” Rosso Toscana IGT 2018

      Andrea Franchetti began positioning Palazzi as an equal red alongside his flagship Tenuta di Trinoro in the 1990s, with the aim of producing two exceptional wines that evoke the left and right banks of Bordeaux.

      Palazzi represents the Merlot grape variety at its best, with soft, supple fruit enlivened and buoyed by intense minerality. The wine comes from a selection of older Merlot vines covering about five to seven hectares. Several months in new barrels add the appropriate complexity, making the wine approachable and enjoyable. This wine is elegantly structured and has terrificageing potential. Vinified in small quantities - just 2,900 bottles are produced each year - it is one of the best Merlots in Italy, and not just for us. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Rich, dense ruby with a fine garnet shimmer. Open nose with lots of ripe fruit of plums, cedar and liquorice. Very dense on the palate, fills the mouth richly, lots of sweet fruit, some drying tannin in the back." Falstaff

      "The 2018 Palazzi, 100% Merlot, is plush, silky and so inviting. Like all of these wines, the Palazzi is quite overt, and yet all the elements come together so well. Dark raspberry fruit, chocolate, spice, leather, licorice all flesh out in the glass. Flamboyant and exotically ripe, Palazzi is a quintessential wine from Tenuta di Trinoro." Vinous

      "During the 2018 vintage a strange wind and drop in temperature arrived in the Orcia Valley, thus Palazzi should be considered of a cooler vintage. 'In the last days of summer, we were dizzy with the silver of the new moon. From the 21st, there was a sudden density in the Merlot: the astronomy signaling. This variety is showing dark and soft, and we began bringing in twenty tons of grape a day. The juice was low in alcohol, high in acidity, rich in taste - complex Merlots, reminding one of Saint-Emilion,' said Andrea Franchetti. Dark and plummy, with precise fruit and clean leathery notes, full of floral layers and buttery sweetness at core, it will age developing balsamic notes now whispered. The tannin shows a great progression on the palate with noble extraction and an almost crisp mineral finish." Decanter

      "The Tenuta di Trinoro 2018 Palazzi is a pure expression of Merlot that boasts seamless power, intensity and concentration. You are treated to a full-throttle expression from Tuscany that exudes generous black fruit, spice and sweet tobacco. Black cherry and plum give the wine soft contours and sweetness. Palazzi sees 15 days of fermentation on the skins and is racked into new barrels for eight months of aging. It is then put into cement for a final 10 months of rest. To the palate, the wine is structured and concentrated, suggesting a pairing with a succulent cut of red meat marinated in rosemary and olive oil. What a beautiful treat." Robert Parker

    About the winemakersTenuta di TrinoroTuscany | Chianti
    Tenuta di Trinoro

    It has quickly become a myth and wine lovers from all over the world are enthusiastic when they hear the name. We are talking about the Tenuta di Trinoro of the cult winemaker Andrea Franchetti, which lies in a godforsaken part of Tuscany south of the Brunello area. Here in the Val d'Orcia near the border to Umbria and Lazio, the charismatic and nephew of the famous American painter Cy Twombly, who is considered to be a little eccentric, thinks up and develops some very unusual red drops. The house's crescences are not based on the local Sangiovese, which is not particularly appreciated by the owner of the estate. Rather, the landowner chooses Bordelaiser varieties as the raw materials - first and foremost Cabernet Franc, but also its 'brother' Sauvignon as well as Merlot and a little Petit Verdot.

    Franchetti, who has been composing his wines since the beginning of the nineties with a visionary mixture of art and craftsmanship, always makes the concentrated and complex alcoholic drops available on the market in small quantities and at high prices the best without following fashion trends. In the vineyards of the Tenuta di Trinoro, the vines, which stand at a high density of up to 10,000 plants per hectare, mature in seventeen parcels at 450 to 600 metres above sea level. The clayey and calcareous soils are interspersed with pebbles. With the vintage 2014 Franchetti for the first time vinified three Cabernet Franc vineyards separately. In addition to his exemplary company in the province of Siena, the unconventional lateral entrant with Passopisciaro is running another successful project on the island of Sicily, which is becoming increasingly important as a wine-growing region.

    The power and structure of the intense drops from Trinoro, whose colour approaches that of black, is almost unique in Italy. The fully ripened grapes are due to the late harvest between the end of October and the beginning of November. The aromatic fullness and the almost overripe fruit of the plants ripening longer than usual in small barriques of French and Caucasian oak remind connoisseurs more of noble drops from the US sun state California than of Central Italy. Particularly in the wines of particularly hot years, a particularly high degree of complexity can be detected that cannot be automatically expected under such conditions. In the cellar, Franchetti's use of technology is not exaggerated. The owner, supported by Teresa Gaspar, a winemaker trained in Lisbon, ferments the must in small cement vats using indigenous yeasts. The globetrotter, who once distributed nobile labels in New York, has noticeably reduced the use of wood and the wines have become even more precise and a little slimmer in recent years. SUPERIORE.DE

    "Andrea Franchetti doesn't have to prove anything anymore. He is the Yves Saint Laurent of Tuscan viticulture." Swiss wine newspaper

    "If I were to attempt to summarize Franchetti's approach to wine, I would settle on the word: 'oneness.' Here we have a single man, who makes a wine of a single style at the only wine estate that exists in this unexplored region."Robert Parker
