IGT Toscana - 2015
Tenuta di Trinoro provides the greatest insight into Andrea Franchetti’s approach to winemaking. The proprietary blend of cabernet franc, merlot, cabernet sauvignon, and petit verdot grown on soils of limestone, alluvial plain, and clay changes each year based upon which grapes are the best from that vintage. It is not wed not to any predetermined recipe, formula, or even flavor profile. Tenuta di Trinoro showcases the distinct terroir and grapes from this remote estate at the furthest confines of viticulture in Tuscany. Richness and structure, depth of flavor and complexity — these are the hallmarks of his wines.

- Climate:2015 VINTAGE 2015 is one of the great vintages of Tenuta di Trinoro. The hot weather came over our vineyards only during the first months: already at the beginning of August, the average temperatures fell very fast, and we had a cool, even cold, ripening period until November. Rains fell intermittently but were light, with happy drying periods. That cool, moderate weather let us go harvesting in each vineyard after the proper waiting time.
