Decanter Magazine Review
Baron Francesco Ricasoli has guided this central Tuscan winery since 1993. Trappola was a feudal hamlet and castle that belonged to the Ricasolis for centuries. Antico Feudo della Trappola blends 60% Sangiovese, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Merlot. A modern style, fermented in stainless steel, aged for eight or nine months in second- and third-use tonneaux. Susan Hulme MW: Sweet oak spice, cream, vanilla and white chocolate notes, toast, refined tannins. Beautifully harmonious wine with lovely freshness on the finish. Lovely lightness and freshness on the finish, and not at all heavy-handed. Andrea Briccarello: Clean, but with rustic and earthy notes. Beefy with wild berry fruits, great tannins and lots of blueberry. Charming and well poised. Annette Scarfe MW: Soft, opulent, plummy and ripe. Full-bodied with ripe tannins. Black cherry and red plums. Plush mid-palate. Ideal with spicy cuisine, and duck. Drinking Window: 2023-2035. (Bordeaux, 04 Jan 2022 Part of Best Bordeaux 2019 wines: Best value whites)
Wine Tasting Notes
Light yellow with green reflections. Inviting and subtle bouquet marked by notes floral, fruity and mineral. Shades of flint, pineapple and lychee. Tasty and refreshing attack. Clos Floridene has race and is perfectly balance. The structure ensures freshness and supports the aromatic expression. Fruity and saline notes on the finish.
45% Sauvignon Blanc - 55% Semillon
