Lamaione

Full of the courage that any individual who wishes to embark on a new project possesses, we planted the first Merlot plants in the 1970s in an unusual, clay terrain. A significant challenge, which, in 1991, led to the birth of Lamaione, a solitary knight, powerful and proud in the Montalcino panorama.

    Vintage Report
    The 2015 season was characterised by an excellent vegetative recovery due to the abundant water reserves left by the 2014 vintage and winter accumulation. The dry and sunny spring led to the vine’s continuous and regular growth. This continued into an equally hot summer that was mitigated by two perfectly timed bouts of rain in mid-August. These conditions resulted in perfect maturity, with an excellent concentration of polyphenolic substances and colour in the grapes. The season offered us Merlot grapes, from which a harmonious wine was obtained, rich in structure, with complex aromas and a lengthy ageing.

  • Tasting Notes
    Tasting Notes
    Lamaione 2015 represents a structural balance, the reflection of an extremely favourable year. Its colour is an intense ruby red, with tinges of deep violet. Its bouquet offers unique emotions: fruit is the main protagonist, with notes ranging from sweet and ripe berries (blueberry) to cherry. Tertiary toasted notes of chocolate and coffee follow. Finally, liquorice and mint stand out.
