A blend of Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot, the 2017 Le Cupole is a gorgeous wine with thick, dark intensity and a sense of bright energy nonetheless. The wine pours from the bottle with midnight darkness. The bouquet offers soft, ripe and opulent fruit, but considering the heat and the drought associated with this vintage, the fruit is expertly managed. There are no jammy overtones or overtly ripe aromas as I had expected, and the tannins are velvety and subdued. (Wine Advocate)
90 International Wine Report
The 2018 'Le Cupole' opens to aromas of red berries and red plums that woven together with spices, candied-florals and hints of tobacco and earthy tones. The medium body is nicely structured and velvety, with a core of sweet red fruits that persist through the finish. The final blend is composed of 40% Cabernet Franc, 37% Merlot, 13% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Petit Verdot.
