GALLONI - Andrea Franchetti is one of Italy’s most fascinating wine personalities. Year after year Franchetti puts compelling juice in the bottle. His wines from Trinoro, in one of the most remote corners of Tuscany, remain some of my favorite reds on the planet. Franchetti describes 2008 as ‘tropical’ in terms of the amount of rain that fell in his vineyards. This was a very late harvest, even by Franchetti’s typically relaxed standards, as the vines struggled to recover from the stress they experienced in 2007.
Antonio Galloni - Wine Advocate #191 - Oct 2010

WA - Deep garnet in color, this wine has a moderately intense nose of black raspberry, red currant, cinnamon stick, cloves and a touch of Mediterranean herbs. The medium-full bodied palate is tight knit with medium-firm, chewy tannins and a good amount of acid, finishing long. A somewhat lighter, more elegant style.
Lisa Perrotti-Brown In Asia #1110 - Nov 2010

The 2008 Tenuta di Trinoro sweeps across the palate with layers of beautifully articulated fruit, violets, spices and minerals, while avoiding the heaviness and overripeness that characterized some of the wines of the past. The tannins and the oak both need several years to fully harmonize, but this is a soft, impeccably refined Tenuta to treasure over the next two decades, perhaps longer. The 2008 Tenuta is approximately 40% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Franc, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot.
