Tenuta di Trinoro Le Cupole 2013


Although considered the second wine of Tenuta di Trinoro, Le Cupole is undeniably a very great wine in its own right. The blend changes with every vintage, but is usually Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot, in decreasing proportions, and often with a small percentage of indigenous varietals Cesanese d’Affile and Uva di Troia added for good measure.

The blend for 2013 contains: Cabernet Franc (62%), Merlot (24%), Cabernet Sauvignon (8%) and Petit Verdot (6%). The final wine is a rich ruby-garnet in colour, revealing exuberant red and black fruit from the outset, characterful and inviting sweetness enhanced by a heady dash of spice, punctuated by minerals and underpinned by fine-grained tannins.
