Lamaione Toscana IGT 2017 - Frescobaldi

Dominated by the ancient tower and the small medieval village, Tenuta CastelGiocondo is located southwest of Montalcino. We are at an altitude of about 300 metres, an ideal place for the production of Sangiovese. But not only. In fact, Lamberto Frescobaldi writes: "Animated by the courage of every person who wants to undertake, in the 1970s we planted the first Merlot vines on an unusual clay soil. An important challenge that led to the birth, in 1991, of Lamaione, a solitary knight, powerful and proud in the Montalcino panorama. The grapes are carefully selected and harvested by hand in boxes. Once in the winery, destemming is followed by manual sorting of the grapes. While fermentation is carried out in steel tanks at a controlled temperature. Then, at the end of vinification, the wine is aged for about two years in at least 80% new French oak barriques. Then, after bottling, follows a further period of refinement of 12 months in the bottle. Powerful and rich, Lamaione has an intense and impenetrable ruby red colour. On the nose, wonderful hints of cherry and plum jam, with intriguing memories of rhubarb, graffite, dark chocolate, liquorice and roasted coffee. In the mouth, it is warm, soft and round, with a beautiful tannic texture, dense and at the same time silky.

Thirty generations and over 700 years of history. With these two "business cards", the Frescobaldi company presents itself on markets throughout the world as an absolute protagonist with the objective of being the most prestigious Tuscan wine producer. Today the company can count on an immense area of vineyards. We are talking about over 1000 hectares, scattered in the most interesting wine-growing areas of the region. The annual production is around seven million bottles and includes all the most important denominations, from Chianti to Pomino, Montalcino and Maremma. In each area, traditional varieties are cultivated, thanks to a perfect knowledge of the specific terroirs. Never as in this case ... experience really makes the difference.
