Marchesi de' Frescobaldi Lamaione 2006


We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

A deep, luminous purple precedes an equally rich nose impressive for its volume and multi-layered complexity. First to emerge are clean-edged fragrances of dried plum and wild blackberry, followed by lively impressions of green pepper and new-mown hay, with hints of smooth vanilla; baker's chocolate and tobacco leaf complete this aromatic mosaic. The palate presents a wealth of sensations, with a dense, silky suite of fine-grained tannins perfectly supported by an emphatic acidity. Overall, Lamaione is appealingly smooth and rounded, with a warm alcohol and a very long-lasting finish. Try with slow-cooked dishes such as pot roasts marinated in the same wine, mushroom-enriched stews, or beef fillet. Enjoy it too with medium-aged cheeses.

Wine AdvocateThe 2006 Lamaione (Merlot) is impressive for the sheer depth and clarity of its fruit. With time in the glass graphite, grilled herbs, minerals and licorice emerge, adding further complexity to the expressive, vibrant blackberry and blueberry fruit. The wine's length, freshness and structure are all first-class. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2021.
