Campo di Magnacosta 2013
2013 was a cooler vintage, serene with little rain. Temperatures in the valley during the summer in the valley averaged 26°C instead of the usual 36°C (79°F instead of the usual 97°F). When they arrived in the winery, the grapes were healthy and hard, with low sugars, high acidity, yet still fully matured.
Magnacosta shows the kind of grandiose and flowery wines that are sometimes the result of vines growing in deep river bed soils. It is Cabernet Franc at its fullest and ripest expression.
Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media, 90 points: “The 2013 Campo di Magnacosta is the first single-vineyard Cabernet Franc made at Trinoro. Dark, powerful and juicy, the 2013 offers plenty of depth and intensity, but less in the way of varietal character. It will be interesting to see if that develops with more time in bottle. Today, the Magnacosta is a work in progress. (Drinking window: 2016 – 2023)”
