In the glass, the wine is deep ruby with purple hues. On the nose, the wine is delicate with notes of cherry, vanilla, raw beef and herbs. On the palate, it is dry, structured and elegant with flavors of plum, ripe cherries, wild berries and a hint of spice, followed by a lengthy and smooth finish that begs for food. Serving suggestions: This wine is very versatile and would pair well with both red and white meats, various pasta dishes and hard cheeses.

James Suckling - "A rich, flavorful red full of ripe fruit and new wood. Full-bodied and intense but shows an underlying freshness and depth. Needs two to three years to soften: better in 2017." (REVIEW OF 2013 vinta

Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Lagone is an opulent and fruit-forward red wine with dark currant and ripe cherry, followed generously by spice, leather and chocolate. It offers simple appeal, but its bouquet is well put together. In the mouth, Lagone (60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc) reveals medium-bodied intensity with a moderate finish. This is a great choice for informal foods like pasta or wood-oven flatbread. It sees 12 months of oak.
