Bordeaux-Style Blends from Great Tuscan Terroirs
The story of Tenuta di Trinoro begins relatively recently, back in 1992, when Andrea Franchetti first began planting vines in what was previously rough woodland covered in wild roses and grazing sheep. His big idea? To produce a Bordeaux-style blend from Bordeaux-style varietals planted using Bordeaux-style techniques, but on Tuscan terroir. The result? A beautiful range of robust, fantastically structured and age-worthy wines expressing the character of the local terroir. The undisputed crown jewel in the range created by talented and adventurous winemaker Andrea Franchetti, Tenuta di Trinoro is not like other Super Tuscans. A remarkably rich and age-worthy blend of Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot, this wine - along with Franchetti's beautifully structured second wine, Le Cupole - is modelled after the famous reds of Bordeaux’s Left Bank appellation, Saint-Emilion. A classic and recognized style has been transplanted and seamlessly applied to the terroirs of southeastern Tuscany, resulting in highly aromatic and complex wines that clearly express the local soil, slopes and sunshine of the Orcia Valley.
