The most important lesson Andrea Franchetti, owner of Trinoro, learnt from a formative stay in Bordeaux, was the crucial role played by terroir. He saw, in the rough woodland that would become Trinoro, soils reminiscent of those he knew so well and the combination of the soil and high altitude convinced him that Trinoro is better suited to Bordeaux varietal vines than the indigenous, and almost ubiquitous, Sangiovese. One can imagine the toothsucking of fellow growers. Yet, Andrea‟s instinct would prove to be correct. Lately he has sepatated out individual crus and 2014 is the first Camagi. This was one area where there had been vines planted before Andrea arrived. Recent years have seen the vines he planted, which struggled to survive, finding a balance.
"Deep ruby in colour, this presents an array of spiced red fruit on the nose. The palate is deliciously dark and concentrated, profound and aromatic, perfumed yet with grip. This is a wine, dark and brooding, which warrants a little time - particularly in magnum"
