Tenuta di Trinoro Campo di Magnacosta 2014


In Stock

“You could characterize this as the lightest of the three single vineyard Cabernet Francs now being introduced by Tenuta di Trinoro. Of course, the word “light” is relative considering the healthy robustness of this profoundly dense pedigree grape. The 2014 Campo di Magnacosta comes from a vineyard plot with alluvial soils and round river stones. The wine opens to deep concentration, but its dark hue is slightly less saturated compared to the other two Cabernet Franc-based wines in production. The difficult 2014 vintage has taken its toll with lower temperatures and an abundance of rain. Franchetti says he was forced to do frenetic work in this vineyard. The bouquet offers pretty tones of pressed rose petal and dried lavender bud. Spice, leather and tar appear on the close. Drink: 2017-2027. 91 points”
