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.
Monica Larner, Robert Parker, 93 points: “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.”
Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media, 90 points: “The 2014 Campo di Tenaglia is a bit richer and deeper than the Magnacosta, but, here, too, the personality of the vintage marks the wine to a significant degree. Succulent dark cherry, raspberry, cedar, licorice and grilled herbs all add character to this pretty, mid-weight Franc. A closing aromatic flourish rounds things out nicely. The Campo di Tenaglia is understated, and yet quite attractive at the same time.”
