Campo di Tenaglia 2014

A cold-weathered year, the wines at Trinoro from this vintage are deep, with a tight texture. The fruit holds back in preparation of a long aging. Campo di Tenaglia wine is dark, spicy, and like licorice because the vines’ roots grow in warm, well drained soil.

“The 2014 Campo di Tenaglia is born in a one-hectare vineyard with sandy limestone soils. This is a very expressive Cabernet Franc that stands apart from the other two wines in this series. The wine’s strong suit regards the purity and the intensity of the bouquet. Seamless aromas of dark fruit, red rose, spice, tobacco and grilled herb lift from the glass. The aromatic profile is finely etched and very pronounced. In the mouth, Campo di Tenaglia shows firm tannins and generous concentration despite a more linear and streamlined overall approach. This wine promises a long cellar evolution ahead.”
