Vini Franchetti

Vini Franchetti comprises two very different estates, Trinoro and Passopisciaro, both conceived by Andrea Franchetti and now joined by an equally distinctive property, Sancaba. Tenuta di Trinoro is the eponymous flagbearer of the Trinoro estate, a rare wine, the blend of which is vintage-dependent. Cabernet Franc and Merlot tend to dominate, with varying amounts of Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. most recently, Andrea has given recognition to the individuality of three distinct vineyard sites within the estate, creating the three Campi, Campo di Magnacosta, Campo di Tenaglia and Campo di Camagi. These are single vineyards of Cabernet Franc, offering different expressions of the same variety. Tenuta di Passopisciaro was established in 2000 and is seen as one of the region’s stars, producing very individualistic, characterful wines, with pronounced volcanic influence. Here we are offering the single crus “Contrade” 2017s and the extremely rare Franchetti 2018 en primeur (Petit Verdot and Cesanese d’Affile) well as the bottled, read to drink, accessible Passobianco 2018 (Chardonnay) and Passorosso 2017 (Nerello Mascalese).
