    Winemaker's Notes:

    Lagone has a warm deep red color close to purple. Delicate aromas of Mediterranean wood and vanilla emphasize the structured and elegant taste with intense notes of wild berries, ripe juicy sour cherries and hints of sweet spices that leave the palate satisfied and pleasantly sweet and dry. Tibor Gál has been able to create a blend marked by the Italian "terroir" together with the "finesse" of a great French red wine. The wine is well structured with a strong and mellow texture. In short, a modern red wine of the best quality.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Aromas of plum and dark fruits lead to a full body, with velvety tannins and a soft, caressing finish. Minerally and floral. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Best after 2011.

    Bright, medium ruby-red. Musky aromas of red cherry, raspberry, tobacco and smoked meat. Round, broad and lush, this forward, easygoing wine conveys a low-acid impression and considerable sweetness to its red fruit, licorice and candied fruit flavors. Finishes with soft tannins and a hint of minerality. A very fruity, almost syrupy style of wine that offers uncomplicated but highly satisfying drinking for the near term.

    For a $16 bottle of wine, this is pretty much a steal, as it is tasty and pleasurable to drink. Aia Vecchia Lagone has a sweet smell that invites you in, and compels you to take a sip. It’s dark and rich in color, yet soft and subtle in taste. It offers the drinker much diversity and flavor, but does so in a mild mannered way. The finish is long lasting and mouth watering and will have you wanting to take another sip. Coming back on the site a week after I ordered Lagone, I found the vintage had sold out. I can see why as it is succulent and refreshing. However, had I known, I would have ordered more bottles. If you can find this wine elsewhere, don’t hesitate to buy it, it’s a great catch and its wallet friendly.
