Lamaione flaunts an impressively dense ruby, then offers a nose of equally stunning richness, initially releasing fruity aromas of blackberry, sour cherry, and blueberry, which gradually yield to generous scents of spicier impressions, particularly black pepper, tobacco leaf, and bitter chocolate. Impressions of tar, pencil lead, and liquorice conclude and crown this compelling aromatic amalgam.
The wine makes a decisive entrance in the mouth, with a smooth, silky suite of dense-packed tannins, and the finish returns some of the darker fruit encountered on the nose.
In the mouth, velvet tannins and a refreshing crispness complement effectively the firmly-structured body and bring the wine an elegant harmony. An aromatic finish is satisfyingly long.
