Wine of the Day: Aia Vecchia Lagone

Not what you would expect from the Bolgheri region of Tuscany, but Aia Vecchia shines with its luscious Bordeaux-style Lagone ($17) blend of predominantly Merlot, with Cabernet Sauvignon, and Cabernet Franc. Aromatic and inviting, the wine opens with wild herb and ripe red berry aromas, followed by a juicy and luscious, yet very dry palate of black cherry, plum, smoked meat, toasted espresso and spice, with a touch of vanilla on the finish. A perfect wine for enjoying with roasted poultry, lamb, or beef.

  1. From this region come some of the finest wines in the world. I know this one. Dry, good grape taste and deep color. Nice choice. Thanks.
