Wine AdvocateMade with a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, the 2015 Lagone shows toasty and oak-driven notes above black cherry and plum. Those oak notes of cinnamon and crushed clove emerge immediately. It takes a few moments before you identify the primary fruit. The 2015 vintage was a hot one, and the mouthfeel is extra rich and succulent as a result. Those powerful oak notes appear once again on the finish, giving the wine structure and spicy endnotes. This an excellent value for those looking for an approachable super Tuscan wine.
