Marchesi de' Frescobaldi Lamaione 2010
|Brand||Marchesi de' Frescobaldi|
The 2010 Lamaione is a delightful expression of Merlot that shows soft tones of cherry and dark spice that are woven within the tight texture of the wine. The appearance is dark and impenetrable and the quality of the bouquet is bright and true to varietal character. Lamaione delivers soft, silky tannins that have been expertly enhanced by oak spice flavors.
Aims high, with a strong lashing of oak setting the pace for the plum, black cherry and kirsch flavors. Medicinal herb and mineral notes complete this complex, powerful red. Woody tannins reign on the tight finish. Better with air, so decant now or cellar short-term. Merlot. Best from 2017 through 2024.
