Tenuta di Trinoro Le Cupole 2018

$30.00

this particular wine was one I tried a few weeks ago when picking out and really enjoying some outstanding 2018 Tuscan wines to offer up to the Nicholas Wines faithful. The wines at Tenuta di Trinoro have a reputation for being really good– so I was excited to try it, even more so because the label looked like one of Bibi Graetz’s wines so I figured it was going to have a similar flair. Oh boy, did this one not disappoint. It was outstanding.

Some of the 2018’s haven’t been reviewed yet so I checked this one out to see if anyone weighed in and that’s when I found this:

“This is a terrific wine that hits that proverbial sweet spot between excellence and value. The Tenuta di Trinoro 2018 Le Cupole is a blend of 40% Cabernet Franc, 37% Merlot, 13% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Petit Verdot that sees a brief eight months in second and third-passage barrique followed by some additional resting time in cement. This lovely vintage shows dark fruit intensity and richness with cherry, blackberry and plum. There is a touch of sweetness, but the mouthfeel is well constructed and layered with phenolic tightness and tight natural structure that will help it age 10 years or more. Le Cupole is one of the best values found in Tuscany.”

Look, I can be a hater– that much I know. But I also give credit where it’s due. I could talk about the wine for 10 minutes, or you could just read that flawless review– you’ll get to the same place. You’ll want some of this wine. I have the last 10 cases left stateside. Sorry to all those who get shut out.
