Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.
Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.
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.
"The estate's Grand Vin, the 2007 Tenuta di Trinoro, is shaping up to be one of the vintage’s finest successes. A dark, richly-textured wine, the 2007 Tenuta boasts a seamless core of ripe fruit that flows onto the palate in a stunning expression of sheer elegance. This super-ripe, explosive wine offers spectacular density and richness in a full-bodied, immensely rewarding style. Hints of new leather, spices, grilled herbs and minerals linger on the sublime close. In 2007 Tenuta di Trinoro is 35% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Franc, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot. The wine underwent malolactic fermentation in oak (which was long that year), where it spent 8 months prior to finishing its aging in cement. The shorter oak-aging regime Franchetti has employed over the last few years seems to be resulting in more elegant and deeply expressive wines than was the case in the past. The 2007 Tenuta was lightly fined but not filtered prior to being bottled. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2027.

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.
One of the most important wine regions in Italy, Tuscany is home to the cities of Florence and Siena, the districts of Chianti and Brunello di Montalcino, and the wineries of Sassicaia, Tignanello and Ornellaia. Tuscany is also home to the indigenous Italian grape variety, Sangiovese. Most of the wine coming from Tuscany is made from some clone of this...Read More About Tuscany
