Vintage 2017: The effects of global warming made themselves felt particularly in the form of an exceptionally hot and dry summer throughout Italy. The vintage required greater attention in soil and leaf cover management, as well as greater thinning of the bunches to remedy the effects of water stress on plants and fruits. An earlier than usual harvest was necessary with a lightning harvest done in just four days towards the end of August. A small quantity of healthy and crunchy grapes was brought to the cellar to result in limited production.

Tenuta di Trinoro

Located in a remote corner of southern Tuscany, Tenuta di Trinoro is known for its rich and complex red aging wines based on Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. The company's 200 hectares are located in an area without a winemaking tradition, at the beginning of the Val d’Orcia, near Sarteano, where Tuscany merges with Umbria and Lazio. The producer and owner, Andrea Franchetti, purchased the property in the 1980s and began planting in the early 1990s. His training as a winemaker began in Bordeaux where he learned the importance of terroir. In Trinoro he discovers he has clay-limestone and gravelly soils very similar to those of the St. Emilion area. However, only a few lands prove suitable for viticulture and these are recovered from the bush and planted in the Bordeaux style: high plant density, sixth of a meter by one meter, with graft of scions from old Pomerol properties. The high density of the plant, the drastic thinning of the bunches, the low yields, the full phenolic maturation and the concentration of the wines give rise to a unique and unmistakable style. The wines are extreme in perfume, color and flavor, enjoyable immediately but conceived for a long aging. Located at the foot of Monte Cetona, Tenuta di Trinoro has a large variety of different soils. The vines, planted dense next to each other, are now more than twenty years old and with their root systems well rooted in the earth they manage to make the particular flavor of the soil on which they grow in the bunch. The vineyards extend for 22 hectares on plains and slopes facing south and at heights ranging between 450 and 600 meters. The plants are mainly cabernet franc and merlot, with cabernet sauvignon and petit verdot present to a lesser extent. Here is a video of our vineyards in Trinoro seen from above: from the highest vineyard to our Magnacosta field.
