GENERAL INFORMATION Lamaione is an exceptionally superb Supertuscan produced by the CastelGiocondo tenuta from merlot grown in the 12-hectare Lamaione vineyard, whose vines were planted in 1976 at an elevation of 300 metres.
GRAPE VARIETY 100% Merlot
TASTING NOTES Lamaione is an elegant wine. It offers an intense violet color. Opening with fruity notes like wild blackberry and blueberry, followed by aromas of clove and black pepper and a delicate hint of eucalyptus to finish with aromas of tar, graphite and liquorice. On the palate the decisive entry denotes a body that is powerful and warm at the same time. The tannin texture is dense and silky. Notable intensity of flavour, long persistent finish.
SERVING SUGGESTIONS Slow-cooked dishes such as pot roasts mar inated in the same wine, mushroom-enriched stews, or beef fillet. Enjoy it too with medium-aged cheeses.
