A powerful expression of Merlot from the heavy clay and arid vineyard, Lamaione. Produced since 1991 on the estate of Castelgiocondo in Montalcino.
Lamaione 2014 features an intense ruby red colour, with scents of red and black fruits. Black cherry, cherry, raspberry and blackcurrant, combined with spicy vanilla and black pepper notes, make up a decidedly full and complex bouquet. The taste is extremely elegant and balanced. A fresh, character-filled attack, well integrated with soft, smooth tannins, leaves a vibrant, persistent finish.

POINTS
Shows plenty of blackberry pie, fresh herbs, vanilla and resin. Full body, lots of wood and a chewy finish. Just too much vanilla character. Pleasant nonetheless.

POINTS
This is a pure expression of Merlot from the Frescobaldi estate in Montalcino that has been in production since 1991. The early ripening French variety had a little trouble in this cold and wet vintage. Grapes that ripened later in the autumn season were able to take advantage of a late season heat spike. However, the 2014 Lamaione Tenuta Castelgiocondo shows juicy characteristics of the grape with cherry and fresh blackberry. This is a mid-weight wine with good density but is perhaps a little shorter in terms of persistence in this vintage.
