The Glorious March of Heumann La Trinità Continues
Markus Del Monego MW giving 93 and 94 points
Earlier this year we wrote about the immense success of three vintages of La Trinitá, a varietal Cabernet Franc made in Villány–thus it is a ‘Villányi Franc’–by Heumann Winery. After the outstanding acknowledgements of vintages ’16, ’17 and ’18, now the golden rain of vintage 2019 begins. Markus Del Monego, probably the most influential German Master of Wine evaluated some Heumann wines on TastingBook.com and La Trinità received 93 points.
Heumann La Trinità 2019, 93 pts
“Intense purple colour with violet hue and almost black core. Elegant nose with refined character, aroma reminiscent of ripe blackcurrants and blueberries, sweet elderberries, discreet floral touch, hints of smoked bacon and dark chocolate in the background. Complemented by hints of vanilla and fine toasting. On the palate peppery spiciness, elegant character with firm yet ripe tannins, very aromatic finish with fine fruit quoting the nose and discreet spiciness. Convincing length and depth.”

The expert also evaluated La Trinità vintage 2018, it received 94 points! (This was the wine selected by Sebestyén Nagy renowned Hungarian wine writer as the 8th best Hungarian wine on his Top 100 list.)
“Intense purple colour with violet hue, black core and hints of garnet tinges in the background. On the palate opulent nose with aroma reminiscent of Crème de Cassis, ripe elderberries, mild spices, elegant toastingwith hints of cold smoke, a whiff of graphite and dried herbs in the background. Cedar wood and tobacco box developing with some time in the glass. On the palate multi-layered with ripe dark berries and juicy black stone fruit. Peppery spiciness, distinct touch of graphite, hints of cigar box with ripe tannins, very convincing length.”
