Tenuta di Trinoro, Le Cupole, Maremma, IT, 2008 is a blend of Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot. This “Super Tuscan is drinking very nicely right now, but will still age for more years to come. The color is rich garnet red. The nose is filled with black berry, tobacco, cigar box and earth. The palate is filled with red fruit up front with hints of vanilla and spices. They age the Le Cupole in third and fourth use oak barrels and then age in cement vats until read to bottle. The up front fruit lends a little a touch of New World flavors to the Le Cupole and it will appeal to a wide variety of palates. Nice acidity balances the fruit and the finish has smooth firm tannins and a long dry finish.
The fruit flavors would make this great for a meal of grilled pork chops.
