Le Cupole Tenuta di Trinoro 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

After a good winter with, maybe, insufficient rains the budding, flowering and then the turning of colour happened very late so that ripening came dangerously close to winter; tasting in the field was difficult because of the green, salty berries affected by the late acid synthesis; few parcels seemed as if they could be picked at the right time: mostly Merlot and some Cabernet Franc, at a late stage, which the good autumn weather made possible waiting for. For some parcels we waited until a little mould had set in to had aromas and softness. Fermentations were good, with wines that had structure and very vertical bodies, very exciting and difficult to assemble.

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
