Tenaglia Tenuta di Trinoro 2014

Andrea Franchetti is producing a collection of single vineyard Cabernet Francs and this is the first vintage of Tenaglia. Cabernet Franc is a grape Andrea believes is underestimated in Bordeaux. As mentioned before, it also rather suits his nature to focus on a variety currently out of fashion elsewhere in the world of wine. This is 100% Cabernet Franc, grown on a tiny west-facing plot of 0.3 hectares, lying at 520m altitude. The soil is 2.5 metre-deep, crumbly limestone. There is a spiciness in Tenaglia.The texture is super-fine – Andrea gave this a very light filtration which, in his words, “made it like silk”.

"This, unusually 100% Cabernet Franc, is beautifully perfumed, fresh and upbeat, red and black fruit dominant, with grip and spice underscored by crushed stone minerals. There are hints of grilled fennel too, testament to a warm well-drained soil - stylish."
