Tenuta di Trinoro

About Tenuta di Trinoro

One of the most eccentrically helmed and breathtakingly situated Tuscan estates to emerge from the powerful Super Tuscan movement, the name Trinoro may not enjoy the internationally ubiquitous fame of the likes of Sassicaia or Tignanello, but it is a producer with whom serious collectors simply must become more intimately acquainted.

Situated in peculiar isolation, compared to the countless wineries clustered around Bolgheri for example, Tenuta di Trinoro rests in a valley near Sarteano where Tuscany meets Umbria and Lazio. Enigmatic proprietor Andrea Franchetti describes his vinous home as “a godforsaken place on the east of the first limestone mountain north of Rome with an ex-volcano between it and the sea”.

Protected by the 600 metre-high Monte Amiata, a unique microclimate is one of the main advantages of Trinoro, creating a very even year during which the summers are hot but not scorching and there are still leaves on the trees in December. Franchetti counts himself blessed to be in a position to leave his grapes on the vine for such a long time, and this long maturation process certainly shows in the powerfully concentrated and gorgeously layered fruit of his cuvées.

A particular focus of Trinoro is on the increasingly fashionable Cabernet Franc grape, a varietal which Franchetti considers to be both wrongly maligned and incorrectly relegated to the third string by the Bordelais. Very much the darling grape of oenophiles the world over at this moment in time, it is easy to see why this wonderful varietal is capturing the imaginations of so many when handled by masters such as Franchetti.

Tenuta di Trinoro 2011 (1x600cl)

Vinous (96)

The 2011 Tenuta di Trinoro is fabulous. Bitter chocolate, espresso, blackberry jam, grilled herbs, violets, mint and cloves are just some of the many notes that resonate off the palate. Unapologetically ripe, viscous and full-bodied to the core, the 2011 somehow manages to also be winderfully complex and nuanced. My impression is that the wine needs at least a few years to lose its considerable baby fat. There is a lot to look forward to here. The 2011 an unusual blend of 85% Cabernet Franc, 11% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Petit Verdot.

Tenuta di Trinoro 2016 (6x75cl)

Vinous (100)

The 2016 Trinoro is one of the most extraordinary wines I have ever tasted from Trinoro and proprietor Andrea Franchetti. Deep and yet also silky, with exceptionally refined tannins and exquisite balance, the 2016 has so much to recommend it. Dark raspberry jam, white chocolate, mint and rose petal notes are all finely knit in this sublime, exquisitely beautiful wine. The finish alone boasts mind-bending intensity and persistence.

Tenuta di Trinoro 2019 (6x75cl)

Wine Advocate (100)

This is a stunning wine and one of the best in this report covering the icons of Tuscany. The 2019 Tenuta di Trinoro is a blend of 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Franc. Fruit is sourced from the very best parcels, and the blending formula changes according to vintage and the style desired by vintner Andrea Franchetti. These vineyard parcels vary in altitude, ranging from 400 to 600 meters above sea level, and the soils are quite varied with pockets of clay, sand and rock. The Trinoro is profoundly deep and pure with a solid core of black fruit that is framed by an elegant contour of spice, tobacco, smoke and crushed stone. To the palate, the wine is long and the finish can be counted in minutes, but the entire experience is beautifully streamlined and velvety. This vintage saw an important freeze event on the 7th of May, and 9,000 fire candles were lit in the lower vineyard blocks to fight off frost damage.

Tenuta di Trinoro Palazzi 2016 (6x75cl)

Wine Advocate (97)

Also undeniably beautiful, the 2016 Palazzi shows inky black extraction and penetrating intensity. This pure expression of Merlot delivers rich notes of tobacco weaved in with ripe fruit, spice, dried blackberry and blackcurrant. There are also some pleasant undertones of raisins and figs that come with the early-ripening grape in a hot year such as 2016. The wine is fermented in steel vats and aged in new oak for eight months before going into cement vats for an additional 11 months. Some 2,900 bottles were made.

Antonio Galloni - Vinous (95+)

Dark red cherries, plums, smoke new leather, savory herbs, tobacco and spices meld together in the 2012 Magnacosta, Trinoro's 100% Cabernet Franc. Today, the flavors are quite raw and not fully developed, but the wine impresses for its energy, vitality and pure, radiant fruit. Readers need to be patient, but this is a great wine in the making.
