2019 Tenuta di Trinoro Rosso Toscana

Tuscany, Italy

A Super Tuscan blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc, this is the epitome of power, depth and grace. With 100 Points from Wine Advocate, we reckon they feel the same!



To the palate, the wine is long and the finish can be counted in minutes, but the entire experience is beautifully streamlined and velvety.

100 Points, Monica Larner, Wine Advocate

About The Wine

Each year, Andrea Franchetti of Tenuta di Trinoro crafts his flagship Rosso according to what the vintage offers. He is a winemaker with an open mind and a sensitive touch who carefully observes the annual conditions and chooses the absolute best for this wine. As such, there is no set cepage or even style, and vintages are bound only by their quality, power, and grace.

The 2019 is a blend of Cabernet Franc and Merlot, it is heady and rich whilst simultaneously flowing with grace and perfume. The terroir shines through with notes of wet stone and undertones of smoky minerality.

A phenomenal wine that will reward deeply on many levels, 100 Points from Monica Larner at Wine Advocate merely underlines what an investment this bottle is.

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

Wine Advocate

"The Trinoro is profoundly deep and pure with a solid core of black fruit that is framed by an elegant contour of spice, tobacco, smoke and crushed stone. To the palate, the wine is long and the finish can be counted in minutes, but the entire experience is beautifully streamlined and velvety. This vintage saw an important freeze event on the 7th of May, and 9,000 fire candles were lit in the lower vineyard blocks to fight off frost damage."- Monica Larner (Wine Advocate)
