"Another stunning wine, the 2012 Tenuta di Trinoro wraps around the palate with stunning depth and power. Today, the flavors are incredibly primary, but it is the wine's textural depth and nuance that impress. The 2012 boasts tremendous concentration, but there are no hard edges, just pure fruit and voluptuousness to burn. Readers should give the 2012 another 2-3 years in bottle." 98ag
Of all his wines, the flagship Tenuta di Trinoro provides the greatest insight into Andrea Franchetti’s approach to winemaking. The proprietary blend of Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Petit Verdot grown on soils of limestone, alluvial plain, and clay changes each year based upon which grapes are the best from that vintage, wed not to any predetermined recipe, formula, or even flavor profile. This Super Tuscan wine showcases the distinct terroir and grapes from this remote estate at the furthest confines of viticulture in Tuscany. Franchetti’s distinct style is apparent throughout each wine and each vintage. Richness and structure, depth of flavor and complexity — these are the hallmarks of his wines.
