Natalie's Review

Tenuta Di Castelgiocondo Lamaione Marchesi De' Frescobaldi Merlot 2007, I.G.T., Tuscany, Italy: Vintages Wine Panel: The 2007 vintage of the 100% Merlot Lamaione was released worldwide just last month. All vintages reviewed by Wine Spectator from 2003 through 2006 received scores of 90 or above (with the ’06 garnering 96 points). Reviews of Frescobaldi’s other Tuscan ’07s are spectacular, so expect similar acclaim when the reviews for this blockbuster wine are published. Lamaione is a natural for the cellar (3-5+ years), though it may also be enjoyed this evening, decanted, with slow-cooked dishes. My note: A very serious wine, and not just because it’s pricey. It’s worth it! Back-like deep chords of black plums and ponderous, heart-stopping black fruit. Superb structure, balance and length. A wine to open when you know you’ve won!
