Trinoro Toscana Rosso 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Merlots picked in October instead of September, Cabernets at the end, instead of the middle, of the month; rainless storms ruhe second vintage thaten a rest during 08 anward. Seeing the fertilies' canopy hoping thatt happened and in Seergy and resumed gat mbling aver the unyielding green of the vines; rich wines, packed with salts: this is t has passed leaving us at Trinoro with a feeling of the tropics. The vineyards had tak d though they were coming very green from the rainy winter, they where leaping for ty and forecasting a blazing summer (which then came) I cut very much down the vin some of the water in the berries would be absorbed to fight the heat's stress; tha ptember the plants had also lost their deeper green -¬‐ but they still had lots of en hering water. At picking I found that cases were coming in the cellar weighing much heavier than what would have built our average of 3.4 tons per hectare, and that led to the second important step taken during this vintage: opening the valve under every tank we filled and bleeding it for 20% of its weight. In 2009, tough very nourished, each of our varietals would eventually slowly ripen. The rains let us wait long enough to pick them: that always makes a great vintage. Afterwards I found that I had an impressive spectrum of great, ripe wines of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot, each one replicated in several different pickings, to choose from. It took longer than usual to select and discard the barrels because so many of them were good; then I mixed. This is one of the best wines ever made at Trinoro.

Tenuta di Trinoro:
Our wine is so aromatic and bright in its fruit that here, more than in other vintages of Tenuta di Trinoro, one has to look at what happened before this year's ripening season to see why a wine like this has come about. The wines were also like that: jolly, strange, aromatic, foreign when they started showing a few months later. Now, after mixing them, the 2008 vintage seems to be being borne ... Read more
Our wine is so aromatic and bright in its fruit that here, more than in other vintages of Tenuta di Trinoro, one has to look at what happened before this year's ripening season to see why a wine like this has come about. The wines were also like that: jolly, strange, aromatic, foreign when they started showing a few months later. Now, after mixing them, the 2008 vintage seems to be being borne powerful, vast and ringing, quite unusual among the vintages of this valley. Read less
