Tenuta di Trinoro Rosso Toscana 2016
“(42% Merlot, 42% Cabernet Franc, 12% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Petit Verdot): Bright red-ruby. Explosive aromas of red cherry, blueberry, mocha, vanilla and sweet pipe tobacco. Utterly palate-saturating yet weightless, conveying wonderful clarity and cut to its crushed red fruit, floral and sweet brown spice flavors. Very impressive on the extremely long, silky finish, where the flavors build slowly and inexorably, showing outstanding lift and creamy sweetness. This should evolve in bottle for decades, but even today it’s impossible to resist. The 2009 vintage was another hot one, but overcast and cooler fall weather in the Sarteano area allowed Franchetti to pick later than usual. The extended hang time has allowed for one of the most impressive young Trinoros in some time; the wine is also different than usual in that it’s relatively top-heavy with Merlot. In this respect it reminded me a little of the 2004 vintage (which included an unheard-of 83% Merlot), though the two wines are very different and the 2009 clearly better.”
