Winemaker Notes

A blend of 40% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Franc, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Petit Verdot.

Tenuta di Trinoro is pretty high up at between 500 and 700 meters at sea level, facing west- south- west, protected from the sea by the Monte Amiata on the very south east of Tuscany. In 1991 Andrea Franchetti had his inspiration in Bordeaux and indeed his high density, low training vines are more reminiscent of Saint Emilion and Pomerol than the rest of Tuscany. The very particular nature of the his vineyard means that Andrea is still hand picking parcel by parcel, waiting for optimum ripeness, pushing harvest till November. The proportions of the various cepages can vary greatly from year to year and often bear little relation to he proportion of the vines planted. Andrea makes wine by taste and not recipe. The main varieties planted are Cabernet Farnc, Merlot , Cabertnet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. Upon their debut, Andrea's wines instantly got the role of "cult wines, " for the small quantity of wines initially produced, the extremely high quality and the successful exhibit. Trinoro now produces 80,000 bottles from 30 hectares of land. What is unique to this higher volume industry is the quality of his production.

Located in a remote corner of southeastern Tuscany, Tenuta di Trinoro specializes in rich, age-worthy red wines made of Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Petit Verdot. The 200-hectare estate sits in viticultural isolation in the Orcia Valley near Sarteano, where Tuscany meets Umbria and Lazio.

Owner and winemaker Andrea Franchetti acquired the property in the 1980s and in the beginning of the 1990s started planting his first vines. The most important lesson he gleaned from a stint in Bordeaux was the crucial role played by terroir. He saw, in the rough woodland that would become Trinoro, clay-limestone and gravel soils reminiscent of those in Saint-Émilion. Only select parcels were suitable for vine-growing, amid a sea of blue clay, and those he cleared by hand and planted in the style of the Bordelais: high-density, meter-by-meter plantings, with cuttings brought over from some of the region’s great estates.

Placed under a mountain, Tenuta di Trinoro has a mosaic of soils. The vines, densely planted, are more than twenty years old and, with their extended root system, they have become able to render a distinct taste from every terrain of the estate. 22 hectares are under vine, planted between 450 and 600 meters on southwestern facing slopes. Cabernet Franc and Merlot dominate the plantings, with small parcels of Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verot on the perimeter.

Tight planting, high thinning, very low yields, extreme ripeness, and concentration of flavor characterize his winemaking style. The wines are highly perfumed and opulent, at once approachable and meant to be left to develop in the bottle over time.

Legendary in Italy for its Renaissance art and striking landscape, Tuscany is also home to many of the country’s best red wines. Sangiovese reigns supreme here, as either the single varietal, or a dominant player, in almost all of Tuscany’s best.

A remarkable Chianti, named for its region of origin, will have a bright acidity, supple tannins and plenty of cherry fruit character. From the hills and valleys surrounding the medieval village of Montalcino, come the distinguished and age-worthy wines based on Brunello (Sangiovese). Earning global acclaim since the 1970s, the Tuscan Blends are composed solely of international grape varieties or a mix of international and Sangiovese. The wine called Vine Nobile di Montepulciano, composed of Prognolo Gentile (Sangiovese) and is recognized both for finesse and power.
