Tenuta di Trinoro Campo di Magnacosta 2013
“The 2013 Campo di Magnacosta is the first single-vineyard Cabernet Franc made at Trinoro. Dark, powerful and juicy, the 2013 offers plenty of depth and intensity, but less in the way of varietal character. It will be interesting to see if that develops with more time in bottle. Today, the Magnacosta is a work in progress. Drinking window: 2016-2023. 90? points.
Andrea Franchetti continues to make some of the most compelling wines in Italy. Readers will find much to admire in these new wines from Franchetti’s Tenuta di Trinoro, including a superb rendition of the flagship wine. The Cupole, the estate’s second label, is once again one of the very best wines in its price range. In addition to the 2013s from Trinoro, I also tasted a number of 2014s from barrel. Those wines point to a surprisingly strong vintage at Trinoro. This year, Franchetti debuts his new Pinot Noir project, Sancaba, which is reviewed here separately. Lastly, Franchetti’s 2014s from Passopisciaro, his Mount Etna estate, were positively riveting when I tasted them from cask last summer.”
