Parker review

Aged eight months in French barrique and ten months in cement, the 2011 Magnacosta is a pure and unforgiving expression of Cabernet Franc. The density is startling and the wine peels back in thick layers to reveal a dark heart of black fruit, black pepper and tobacco. You can taste its chewy ripeness down to the last delicious drop. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2028. 93/100

Press

Antonio Galloni's Vinous: 92/100. Tenuta di Trinoro's 2011 Magnacosta is 100% Cabernet Franc made from cuttings sourced from one of Pomerol's most prestigious estates. Plums, black cherries, mocha and espresso all wrap around the palate in a incredibly juicy, opulent wine. The 2011 is super rich and concentrated, but it works. This is the most immediate of Tenuta di Trinoro's high end bottlings. Andrea Franchetti's 2011s are extreme. There is no way of getting around that. The wines are intense, opulent and among the richest Tuscan wines I have ever tasted. Stylistically, the 2011s could pass for wines from Napa Valley if it weren't for the distinctly Tuscan elements of structure that underpin the fruit. The 2011s are ripe and silky, with suggestions of sweetness and alcohols in the 16%-16.5% range. But that is Franchetti. He makes wines that reflect each vintage to the core. The 2011s spent just 5-6 months in 100% new oak barrels and were then racked into cement, where they finished aging. In the 2011s, readers should expect wines with Amarone-like levels of viscosity and richness, especially with the top wines in the range. 92/100
