Description

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.

The 2008 Tenuta di Trinoro is a weaker link in this exceptional succession of delicious wines. The growing season was characterized by heavy rains and soggy conditions. Despite the cooler year, fruit ripeness is pushed forward to its maximum to offer big inner warmth and opulence. However, the wine delivers less complexity and fewer of the fine nuances of the other vintages in this vertical (most particularly the delicious 2009 vintage that I tasted immediately before this sample). Although this edition is slightly more simple and monolithic in definition, it does offer plushness and dark fruit richness that extends generously to all the senses, both the nose and the mouth. Because there are some signs of premature oxidation, I will suggest a more conservative drinking window.
