Planeta 2005 Merlot is a good wine. Nothing to write home about, but it tastes fine. It leaves a kind of woodsy cedar taste in your mouth that is pleasant and goes down easy. My issue with this wine is the price. Creeping up to almost $40 a bottle I feel is a little steep, as I can get two bottles of a different wine for the same price, of equal or better quality. I have no problem putting out the cash for a more expensive wine; however, I feel this wine is not worth the price and is more suited to the $20 price range. My advice, sit this one out, its fine in taste, but there are a lot of wines that are fine in taste for a lot cheaper.
For a $16 bottle of wine, this is pretty much a steal, as it is tasty and pleasurable to drink. Aia Vecchia Lagone has a sweet smell that invites you in, and compels you to take a sip. It’s dark and rich in color, yet soft and subtle in taste. It offers the drinker much diversity and flavor, but does so in a mild mannered way. The finish is long lasting and mouth watering and will have you wanting to take another sip. Coming back on the site a week after I ordered Lagone, I found the vintage had sold out. I can see why as it is succulent and refreshing. However, had I known, I would have ordered more bottles. If you can find this wine elsewhere, don’t hesitate to buy it, it’s a great catch and its wallet friendly.
