Le Cupole comes from a skilful blend of those international vines that have adapted with great results in Tuscany, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, with a clear predominance of the former in the final cut. These grapes grow in vineyards owned by the Trinoro Estate that are more than twenty years old, located at an altitude of about 400-600 meters above sea level.
The must ferments in steel tanks, macerating for about 15 days in contact with the skins. Refinement follows, which first takes place for 8 months in second, third and fourth passage barriques, and then continues for another 10 months in concrete. At the end of this period the wine is ready to be bottled.
In the heart of the Val d'Orcia Trinoro vineyards extend for almost 25 hectares, managed with care and rare concern by Andrea Franchetti, an eclectic and "anarchic" producer in search of perfect harmony between vineyard, soil and climate and, for this reason reason, prone to experimentation.
The vineyards are dense and low, planted on clayey soil and raised with non-invasive techniques; the management criterion points to the maximum concentration of the grapes and the harvests are carried out as late as possible. The result is therefore intense and luxuriant wines.
Andrea's dedication to the absolute quality of his products involves fermentation in cement with the use of indigenous yeasts and aging in selected barrels; activities that take place in a cellar where great technologies are not allowed, a choice dictated by a passionate as well as uncompromising craftsmanship.
