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.

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.
