Antonio Galloni, Vinous, August 2020The 2018 Le Cupole is a delicious entry-level offering from Trinoro. Freshly cut flowers, sweet red berry, mint and blood orange all run through the 2018. In this vintage, Le Cupole is a bit lighter than it often is. I would prefer to drink this fruity red over the next handful of years. Drinking window: 2020 - 2026. 90 points.
Monica Larner, Wine Advocate, August 2020: This is a terrific wine that hits that proverbial sweet spot between excellence and value. The Tenuta di Trinoro 2018 Le Cupole is a blend of 40% Cabernet Franc, 37% Merlot, 13% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Petit Verdot that sees a brief eight months in second and third-passage barrique followed by some additional resting time in cement. Production is an ample 70,000 bottles. This lovely vintage shows dark fruit intensity and richness with cherry, blackberry and plum. There is a touch of sweetness, but the mouthfeel is well constructed and layered with phenolic tightness and tight natural structure that will help it age 10 years or more. Le Cupole is one of the best values found in Tuscany. Drink: 2020-2035. 94 points.
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.
