For centuries, in the French region of Pomerol with dead vines did so: carefully selected the best specimens that were cut off and plant elsewhere.

Andrea Franchetti founded Tenuta di Treanor in 1992 with the aim to make the best wine in Italy. As a wine merchant, he was fascinated by the great wines of the right bank of the Bordeaux region. In his cellar, he wanted to repeat the experience of the wine while keeping Italian traditions. After several years of searching, Franchetti found the perfect place for the project near the village of Sarteano in southeastern Tuscany. Perched high on a hill overlooking the river Orcia, Tenuta di Treanor protected from marine influence from the west Mount Amiata and internal fog in the east mountain Cetona. The limestone soil rich in vineyards and clay gravel mixture. Planting of vines began in 1992 with international varieties such as Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot, as well as a small proportion of the Italian grape Chezane d'Affile. Franchetti produced two wines - "Tenuta di Treanor", which is a blend of Cabernet Franc (80%) and the proportion of Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot, and "Palazzi" created from an equal mix of Cabernet Franc and Merlot. These fabulous wines marked a great structure and concentration, layered taste with notes of ripe fruit and spices bulk, which give the wines an exotic character. At the moment the wine "Palazzo" is not produced, and in the line of wines from Tenuta di Treanor appeared "Le Cupole" (Dome) - a blend of all four major varieties grown.
"This is - one of the new superstars of Tuscany, whose owner - Andrea Franchetti - gathered his first harvest in 1997. He is obviously a perfectionist and does some things that nobody has never been made with Cabernet Franc outside Bordeaux, perhaps, but a few California wineries. All wines are made from grapes Franchetti vines with low yields, using indigenous yeasts and micro-oxygenation, without filtration before bottling. I - fan of his wines with the first releases, "- he said of the winery Tenuta di Treanor famous wine critic Robert Parker.
