Super Tuscan Brilliance: Tenuta di Trinoro

Hedonistic Pleasure

When wine lovers think of the Super Tuscans, they usually think of the Tuscan coast. And indeed that is where many are located. But one of the greats is a long way from there, and much closer to Tuscany’s wine heartland. In the beautiful Val d’Orcia, Tenuta di Trinoro produces some of Tuscany’s great Bordeaux blends; wines of immense ripeness, concentration, and hedonistic pleasure.

Trinoro’s differentiating feature is its reliance on Cabernet Franc. This wonderful variety gives a notable fragrance and finesse to the wines. It plays a big role in the estate wine (Tenuta di Trinoro), and really shines in the three different single-vineyard Cabernet Franc wines. Magnacosta, from a lower elevation, is supple and generous; Tenaglia, spicy and rich; Camagi, powerful and structured. Finally, Palazzi is the 100% Merlot homage to Pomerol.
