Aia Vecchia Lagone Rosso 2008

Aia Vecchia Lagone Rosso 750ml 2008         
Sku: 19020

Aia Vecchia is located deep in the Tuscan countryside between Bolgheri and Castagneto Carducci. This is an area where the favorable microclimate and ideally suited soils make possible the production of very high quality wines. The particular position of the vineyards provides the vines with both direct sunlight and sunlight reflected by the sea. This in general allows an early harvest. The property consists of 170 acres – 118 are vineyards, 74 of which are under the Bolgheri DOC. The planted varieties are Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon, which are used to produce Lagone and Sor Ugo. The Morellino di Scansano is produced in the estate of Magliano in Toscana (Grosseto) – 24 acres are planted with Sangiovese and Merlot grape varieties. Both properties are owned by the Pellegrini family, grape growers in the area for several generations.

Tasting notes
A modern style red showing wild berries, ripe juicysour cherries and hints of sweet spices and vanilla.

The 2008 Lagone is one of the rare values readers will find from Bolgheri. Layers of sweet, dark fruit flow effortlessly from this delicate, feminine wine. In 2008 Lagone is more about subtlety than power. The blend is 60% Merlot, the remainder split between Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2014.

A full, velvety and juicy red, delivering lots of Christmas pudding and dried fruit character on the nose and palate. Best after 2011. 12,500 cases made. –JS

Lagone is a pleasurable and rich blend of Merlot, Cab Sauvignon, Cab Franc and Sangiovese that opens with rich, dark color and intense aromas of sweet spice, chocolate, cherry and tobacco. The wine feels chewy and smooth in the mouth with a long, velvety feel on the close. M.L.

Technical notes
Fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel. Aged 12 months in barriques of various sizes.
