Le Cupole. Tenuta di Trinoro 2008

External Review by We Speak Wine:

The entry-level 2008 Le Cupole is beautiful and expressive in its dark red fruit. The 2008 is a mid-weight Cupole, with just a touch less exuberance than the superb 2007, but with just as much personality and sheer character. Silky tannins frame the mineral-laced fruit through to the finish, where the wine's inner sweetness lingers on the close. The Cupole is one of the finest relative values in Tuscan wine, and is a one of my go to choices on restaurant wine lists. This is another fabulous effort from Andrea Franchetti. In 2008 Le Cupole is approximately 35% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Franc, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2016. ** SOLD OUT **

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

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
