Tenuta di Trinoro – Bianco di Trinoro – 2017
We are in the Val d’Orcia on the border with Umbria and Lazio, in a corner of Tuscany where Andrea Franchetti, after many years of experience across the board in the Bordeaux area, discovers in Sarteano conditions and gravelly soils similar to those of St. Emilion. Right there, he decided to create Tenuta di Trinoro in the 80s and to plant the same varieties of Bordeaux grapes. Absurd obsessive work in the vineyard, with high plant density and very low yields, minimal approach in the cellar, his are unique, full and warm wines. Great wines.
WHITE di Trinoro is the newcomer on the market, its exclusivity is that it has never been produced before this vintage, despite the fact that the vineyards are around twenty years old. This is because Franchetti wants to make great wines, and sell them only when he considers them such. A production limited to very few bottles, about 1000, of 100% Sémillon. A great wine, which fully respects the characteristics of a French variety. It is a full wine, with an explosive citrus scent, a nice roundness in the mouth, but with a finish of great acidity. A memorable bottle.
