2019 Tenuta di Trinoro Le Cupole

Tuscany, Italy

Top tier Tuscan for a steal - this rich, silky Super-Tuscan is drinking beautifully now. Unusually, it is dominantly Cabernet Franc...

About the Wine

With estates in both Tuscany and Sicily, Andrea Franchetti is a maverick. An innovator not afraid to question and challenge established wisdom, even in a place like Tuscany.

Biodynamically farmed, his Tenuta di Trinoro estate lies in a remote, stunningly beautiful part of Siena, bordering Umbria, and is planted to a Cabernet Franc-lead blend of Bordeaux varieties.

The Le Cupole, although being the estate's second label, is exceptional value. Rich, silky Super-Tuscan drinking beautifully now.

About Tenuta di Trinoro

Only establishing plantings in 1992 Tenuta di Trinoro sits in viticultural isolation in sheep grazing country where Tuscany meets Umbria and Lazio.

Andrea Franchetti deliberately concentrated his plantings around Cabernet Franc, where he sees parallels with the limestone and gravels of Bordeaux’s right bank appellations.

Sparing no expense and focused on exceptional quality, the vines are farmed biodynamically.

Tight planting, high thinning, very low yields, extreme ripeness, and concentration of flavour characterise 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.

Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

"Very ripe and rich. Black cherry, prune, almond, dried herbs and orange peel. It’s fleshy, silty and rich tannin, again that sort of Campari bitterness and dried herb amaro thing, dark chocolate, mixed peel and a chewy finish of boldness and solid length. Very interesting. Dark and savoury. Lacks a bit of freshness, but has lots of character. Peaty flavours and plenty of tannin to close." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

Do I have to order in dozens? No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts? No, our pricing is designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 02 8376 8775 or and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store? No. Just an a warehouse/office. We occasionally do events however, so sign up to our newsletter or follow us on instagram to stay in the loop.

Can I special order a wine you do not sell? If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
