Tenuta di Trinoro

The 2005 Tenuta di Trinoro is one of the handful of unqualified successes in this difficult Tuscan vintage. Rain towards the end of the growing season compromised much of the fruit, so in 2005 Tenuta is roughly 90% Merlot, an early-maturing grape which the estate was able to bring in before the rains. It is a primary, vibrant wine endowed with super-ripe blueberries, blackberries, new leather, spices and graphite. It is incredibly long, layered and pure, all qualities which are quite rare in this vintage. Franchetti also opted for a relatively short 7 months of oak aging in 2005, which seems to have been an inspired choice in this vintage. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2022.
