The Lamaione Toscana IGT by Tenuta di Castelgiocondo by Frescobaldi once again brings to the point the legendary achievements of the Marchesi de' Frescobaldi in Italian viticulture. A top melody from Italy - for us a synonym for great wine.
In the glass, the lamaione presents itself in a rich purple and beautiful dense color. On the nose appear first fruit aromas of blackberry and blueberry, then clove, black pepper, chocolate, a slightly balsamic note of eucalyptus and thyme. On the palate, this unique Merlot from Tuscany reveals itself warm, soft and round, with dense and silky structure and present tannins. In taste, the aromas condense to a long and sustainable finish.
Production of Lamaione Toscana IGT from Frescobaldi
This red lace cru is vinified from Merlot grapes grown in the Lamaione vineyard of the same name from the CastelGiocondo winery. After mash fermentation and alcoholic fermentation, the wine is aged for 24 months in French oak barriques, 90% new and 10% in second batch, then the lamaione matures for another 12 months in the bottle.
Food pairing for the Lamaione Toscana IGT from Frescobaldi
Enjoy this Tuscan red wine with venison goulash from wild boar or rabbit, or as an ideal partner with hard, matured cheeses, dishes with pork, prepared as roasts directly in the wine or braised.
