Le Cupole

  • Tenuta di Trinoro
  • Toscana, Italy

Method & Production

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.

Tasting notes

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.

Food matching

Pairs well with game dishes, stewed meats and wild mushrooms.
