Dark and imposing the 2016 Carmignano Riserva Trefiano smolders up from the glass with rich plums giving way to crushed violets stone dust hints of tobacco and saddle leather. An opulent wave of velvety textures floods the entire palate with ripe red and black fruits leaving a saturation of minerals and grippy tannins in its wake. This is potent long and structured; yet the balance is on point as notes of hard red candies and hints of licorice fade. The 2016 Trefiano is quite a wine. This is a blend of 80% Sangiovese 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Caniolo that spends eighteen months refining in medium-toast tonneaux half new and half second pass.
28 Jul 2020 ? A pretty pumped-up Carmignano with lots of ripe fruit and new wood yet there?s underlying seriousness to the full body and intensity with a long flavorful finish. Needs a year
