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.
