The second wine of the flagship Trinoro wine. A slight addition of Cabernet Sauvignon with older oak aging helps to structure this wine for more immediate enjoyment. "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." - WA 94 points at this price! This is what a second wine should be: Affordable and Awesome.
