Description

We already know, and so should you too, but let me remind you the Tuscan 2016 vintage may be better than the benchmark 2010.  Andrea Franchett’s opening tier Le Cupole, a “Bordeaux” varietal proprietary blend from his southeastern Tuscan estate is a significant example of the quality level one can expect.   Rare mags at $82.95.

“The 2016 Le Cupole is a simply beautiful wine, with a full and richly extracted style that delivers power but does not go overboard. It is a blend of Cabernet Franc (42%), Merlot (40%), Cabernet Sauvignon (14%) and Petit Verdot (4%) that shows a lot of black fruit and a touch of green spice on the close. This wine comes full circle to offer a great drinking experience. The grapes are fermented in stainless steel vats and aged in two- and three-year-old barriques for eight months and ten months in cement. Some 58,100 bottles were produced.  2019-2030” – 94 points, Monica Larner, Wine Advocate – May 31, 2019

“Lush and expressive, this red offers plum, black cherry, leather, iron and smoke aromas and flavors. Backed by muscular tannins, but finds equilibrium on the long, fruit-filled aftertaste. Best from 2021 through 2030. 4,842 cases made, 1,900 cases imported.” – 92 points, Wine Spectator  – March 31, 2019
