The flagship 'Tenuta di Trinoto' is an absolutely sensational wine from Andrea Franchetti in this vintage. Composed of 59% Cabernet Franc and 41% Merlot, which was the first selections of fruit grown on thin, hard, rocky soils rich in quartz and limestone, which tend to come from the higher parcels of the estate. The wine itself opens to inventing aromas of ripe blackberries and dark cherries which are laced with sweet spices, tobacco, fresh cut florals, and hints of fresh herbs. On the palate this continues to impress with its gorgeous full-bodied texture and supple mouthfeel that is concentrated and focused all they way through the long finish. The 2018 shows a wonderful combination of power and class, and while it is simply stunning at this early stage, it also has the potential to age beautifully for years to come..
