Winemaker Notes

60% Merlot with the balance Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc.

The vines are on the plains, between Bolgheri and the town of La California. Temperature-controlled fermentation, manual punch-down and pumpovers. Aged one year in barrique and a minimum of six months in bottle. The wine has a warm, deep purplish-red color and aromas of Mediterranean wood. Its flavors of wild berries and juicy ripe cherries are balanced by spice notes, and an elegant structure and mellow mouthfeel.

Critical Acclaim

WE 91
Wine Enthusiast

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 smoot in the mouth with a long, velvety feel on the close.

WS 90
Wine Spectator

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.

Aia Vecchia
Aia Vecchia is the name of an old building which is today the centre of a company deep in the Tuscany countryside between Bolgheri and Castagneto Carducci. 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.
