Le Cupole is the second label from Tenuta di Trinoro, the first vintage of which was 1995. A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Each variety is fermented separately in 50hl stainless steel vats, with periodic pump-overs and punch-downs for maximum extraction. Aging for 8 months in French oak barrels of 1, 2 and 3 years old; then 11 months in cement tanks.

Method & Production
Intense nose, full of beautiful ripe fruit. Bold, mature, and elegant, with excellent tannin structure and length. Very complex.
“The 2020 Le Cupole is a rich, flavorful wine. Super-ripe dark cherry, plum, espresso, incense and chocolate are front and center. There’s not much subtlety here, but then again I am not sure that is the goal, either. This flamboyant red will be a joy to drink right out of the gate. Drinking window: 2022-2030” 92 points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous (July 2022)
Pairs well with game dishes, stewed meats and wild mushrooms.
