“Tenuta di Trinoro’s 2011 Magnacosta is 100% Cabernet Franc made from cuttings sourced from one of Pomerol’s most prestigious estates. Plums, black cherries, mocha and espresso all wrap around the palate in a incredibly juicy, opulent wine. The 2011 is super rich and concentrated, but it works. This is the most immediate of Tenuta di Trinoro’s high end bottlings. (Drinking window: 2013 – 2021)”
