The 2008 Tenuta di Trinoro sweeps across the palate with layers of beautifully articulated fruit, violets, spices and minerals, while avoiding the heaviness and overripeness that characterized some of the wines of the past. The tannins and the oak both need several years to fully harmonize, but this is a soft, impeccably refined Tenuta to treasure over the next two decades, perhaps longer. The 2008 Tenuta is approximately 40% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Franc, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2028. <br><br> Andrea Franchetti is one of Italy's most fascinating wine personalities. Year after year Franchetti puts compelling juice in the bottle. His wines from Trinoro, in one of the most remote corners of Tuscany, remain some of my favorite reds on the planet. Franchetti describes 2008 as `tropical' in terms of the amount of rain that fell in his vineyards. This was a very late harvest, even by Franchetti's typically relaxed standards, as the vines struggled to recover from the stress they experienced in 2007. --- Antonio Galloni

Plum, blueberry, black pepper and sweet spices on the nose, complemented by hints of milk chocolate and cedar. Very pure, rich and dense on entry, with seamless flavors of spicy black fruits, bay leaf and vanilla. Finishes impressively long and suave, with a note of chocolate mint. (Incidentally, the '09, which has not yet been bottled, looks like another star in the making but in an altogether different style: bigger and more tannic, with considerable power and weight.)
