A Complex Bordeaux Blend from Tuscany

Tenuta di Trinoro 2011 is a Bordeaux-style blend, composed of 90% Cabernet Franc, 6% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Petit Verdot, made in southeastern Tuscany. The vines, which are over 20 years old, grow in a mosaic of soils - mostly clay-limestone and gravel. The 2011 growing season was characterized by heat waves and severe drought, claiming half of the Merlot that year. But, a great storm in October introduced cooler temperatures, making for fresher fruit. The three grape varietals included in the blend were harvested between October 21st and 31st, and exhibted an exciting diversity in ripness. The wine matured for 8 months in new French oak barriques, then 10 months in cement vats.

Tenuta di Trinoro 2011 is an incredibly ripe and full-bodied wine on the palate, also revealing itself to be very complex and nuanced in flavor. The fruit is very much present, and is ripe and chewy, with hints of blackberry jam and cherry compote, along with spice and pipe tobacco. This is a very well-structured wine that will only improve with age.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Here is a very successful interpretation of Trinoro's signature wine style. The 2011 Tenuta di Trinoro is mostly Cabernet Franc (90%) with Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot in reduced background roles. This very warm vintage saw no Merlot used in the blend. This wine truly stands out. It is expressive and endowed with an important sense of drama and darkness The fruit comes forth in ripe, chewy and slightly sweet waves of intensity with blackberry preserves, cherry compote, spice and pipe tobacco. The wine shows great density and structure. The tannins are thick and broad in formation.
