Reviews of purchase Aia Vecchia, "Lagone", Toscana IGT, 2012
Wine has a warm, deep red color close to magenta.
The wine shows a structured and elegant taste with intense notes of wild berries, ripe juicy cherry, hints of sweet spices and milk chocolate. Pleasant tannin sweet aftertaste with a tendency to dryness.
The wine has a delicate flavor with hints of Mediterranean wood and vanilla, combined with a fragrance of blackberries, figs and prunes, supported by smoky notes of clove and tobacco.
Wine is not capriciously in Gastronomy and perfectly to a variety of meat dishes, as well as piquant cheeses.
Blend wine "Lagone", which includes grape varieties Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon, absorbed the features of the Italian terroir and elegance of the great French red wines. Merlot brings a blend of sweet, juicy, fruity notes; Cabernet Franc gives roundness, more fruity, tannin and the ability to extract and Cabernet Sauvignon gives the power and structure. In short, the "Lagon" - a modern high-quality red wine made in Bordeaux style matured in cellars Aia Vecchia for one year in different types of oak barrels and 6 months - in bottles. During this time formed a special soft, flexible and velvety taste of the wine. Vintage 2011 can store up to 2018. Given the youth and the intensity of the flavor of wine, it should be decanted for 45 minutes before use.
"Lagon" 2011 was awarded a bronze medal at the competition "Decanter World Wine Awards" and the "International Wine & Spirit Competition".
