Aia Vecchia Lagone Toscana 2007

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.
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.

This is an area where the particularly favorable microclimate and ideally suited soils make possible the production of very high quality wines. The particular position gives the vines very much light, both direct sunlight as sunlight reflected by the sea. This in general allows an early harvest.
