The Wine Advocate already knows: “Aia Vecchia is one of the more under the radar producers in Bolgheri, but the wines rarely fail to deliver the goods.” In the outstanding 2018 vintage, they delivered the goods and then some. The 2018 Aia Vecchia Lagone Toscana is an absolute stunner. I’m calling early again this year – this will likely be my bargain of the year in Tuscany. Lush, dark fruits, licorice and baking spices with a lengthy smooth finish. It’s delicious.
Everybody loves a great sparkling rose served chilled almost as much as they love a good story. Today’s wine combines the two. “Il Vigliacco” or “the coward” is the Buglioni’s defiant message to the Italian Wine Consortium, but it’s also a wonderful, delicious sparkling rose with its seductive aromas, tiny, creamy bubbles and it’s wonderful dry fruit. This is a great one to drink and talk about with your friends.
The historic vineyard is located at high elevation within the heart of Chianti Classico. Mazzei could have easily just thrown the Merlot in the dirt and bottled the Sangiovese alone for a much bigger pay day. I’m certainly glad they didn’t. This is deep, dark and luscious with intense aromas of red berry and cocoa. Fresh and lively on in the mouth – and will be an excellent companion to any red sauce – yes, even pizza – pot roast, etc.
