Tenuta di Trinoro – Le Cupole Rosso Toscana – 2018
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.
Le Cupole is their entry wine made from younger plants of Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot.
The first vintage dates back to 1995 and has since become a supertuscan classic.
Aging in used barriques and final assembly in cement tanks give us a rich wine, with fruity notes and a soft finish.
