Tenuta Di Trinoro, Andrea Franchetti 2006
The 2006 Tenuta di Trinoro is another profound wine from Andrea Franchetti. Purity, power and structure all come together as this stunning, youthful wine gradually opens in the glass. Jammy dark blueberries, menthol, spices and toasted oak are just some of the nuances to be found in this sweet, textured offering. Today it comes across as less intense than previous vintages. In 2006 the Tenuta is 40% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Franc, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Petit Verdot. Franchetti describes the 2006 harvest, as Aserene@ particularly in the crucial last month of ripening which allow for a late harvest that took place between the 10th and 24th of October.
