Vintage 2018: After the torrid summer 2017, in the valley there were cooler and more regular temperatures for 2018. Approaching the end of August, we observed larger than usual bunches, not very sweet for the period and with an unusual softness. Due to the cooler temperatures, the vines managed to ripen the fruit and tannins in advance; all this usually occurs much later due to the heat of August. The very thin skins were incredibly ahead with the color. Generally all this happens in mid-October. After the harvest of the merlot, suddenly a whipping wind arrived that crossed the valley and got cold, this stressed the grapes more. Even with large bunches for the first time in the history of the company, the fruits began to lose vigor and the berries to become softer. It was decided to spray the vineyards to give the grapes a final push, then the rain came and then the sun, low and orange, until the last new moon. Everything has become mature and profound again. Enigmatic at the moment, but fascinating. This vintage will be singular.

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.
