2001 Frescobaldi Lamaione Castelgiocondo IGT Merlot
about this wine:
Lamaione is an exceptionally superb Super Tuscan produced by the Castel Giocondo tenuta from 100% merlot grown in the 12-hectare Lamaione vineyard, planted in 1976.
The Marchesi de' Frescobaldi is one of the most significant wine producers in Italy, with nine estates-and more than 1,000 hectares-in Tuscany. The family has been growing wine since the early 14th century, when they became the first in Tuscany to import and plant French vine cuttings. Because they have been producing wines for more than 700 years, to experience Frescobaldi is to glimpse the history of Florence, from the Middle Ages to the present day. They continually upgrade their extensive vineyard holdings, and they craft their wines with the finest combination of traditional and innovative methods.
Wine Spectator has ranked many of their offerings in the 90s and their wines are consistently listed in the magazines Top 100 Wines of the Year, encouraging wine enthusiasts from around the globe to become familiar with some of Italy's finest wines.
