Winemaker's Notes:

2007 was a vintage where wines from late-ripening fruit like Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot came out on top. Musts in the vats had very little juice. After fermentation the wines looked black and impenetrable for months before they started deepening. In April they were showing fruit and tannin like we have never seen before. There is no doubt vintage's wine will be peaking for many years.

About Tenuta di Trinoro:

The winery is located in Sarteano in the southeast corner of Toscana, about half way between Florence and Rome. Very interesting and unusual thought processes go into the production of these wines. The vineyards are micro-managed during harvest to find optimal ripeness. Predominate are the two wines: Toscana Rosso and Le Cupole, the Toscana Rosso being a vineyard selection and barrel selection and the Le Cupole being the rest.
