Lamaione Merlot Tuscany 2003

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Intensely aromatic with nutty oak, smoky coals, charcoal, heavy toast, Cocoa, burnt sugar, and pruney fruit notes. This freshens up somewhat revealing slightly roasted black fruits, mineral and spice tones with a nicely refreshing top note of spearmint and sage. There might be a touch of brett here as well. In the mouth this is elegant with soft tannins and integrated acids. It's quite big upfront but lacks a bit of follow through though it does offer nicely earthy, dark plummy fruit. It finishes with a touch of spice and mint.

Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Layered Rice Pudding

RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
