Winemaker Notes

Aragone is a distinctive wine made in a region famous for Super-Tuscan blends with Bordeaux varieties. This wine looks not to the Medoc, but to the Mediterranean. Indigenous Sangiovese is blended with Syrah (typical of Southern France), Alicante (typical of Spain) and Carignan, creating a "Super-Med" blend that brings together these noble grapes and highlights the heritage of winemaking from across the Mediterranean. The name "Aragone" refers to the Aragons of Spain, who together with the Medici family of Florence, dominated the region of Maremma in the 1500's. The six-point star depicted on the label, represents an aerial view of "Forte Stella," which is located in Porto Ercole just south of Grossetto, built by the Spanish around 1550.

Intense ruby red with reflections of violet. The Sangiovese and Alicante contribute to the structure and complexity of the blend with spice and liquorice flavors. The Syrah and Carignan contribute a fresh dark berry component. The wine hints at a Southern Rhone style with black olive aromas, and ripe fruit recalls the depth of Spanish Priorat.
GREAT WITH Game, steak and roasted meats.

RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2006 Aragone is a dark, brooding offering endowed with masses of iron, minerals, black cherries, earthiness and smoke. The wine gains volume and depth in the glass, revealing tons of fruit and considerable structure. For the moment, the 2006 Aragone remains somewhat monolithic and in need of a year or two of bottle age. The wine should be splendid when it awakens. Aragone is Sangiovese, Alicante, Syrah and Carignan. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2018. 91+ points

Wine & Spirits
Rather than follow the super-Tuscan path of blending sangiovese with Bordelaise varieties, the Bastianich–Batali–Castelli team behind La Mozza choose Mediterranean varieties—alicante, syrah and carignan—to create a super-Maremma. It has the wild floral character of old-vine mixed blacks (the vines range from seven to 50 years of age) set against plush tannins that give a rich feel to the finish. A generous, red-fruited blend, this will match pasta with boar ragù.

La Mozza Winery Image
All aware of the enormous potential of the Maremma region of southwest Tuscany, Joe and Lidia Bastianich and Chef Mario Batali formed La Mozza in 2000. They came together to create a new winery with a modern mission: To express this terroir to the fullest with new and exciting grape varieties. The name of the top wine from the estate, Aragone, recalls the Spanish heritage of the area. The indigenous Sangiovese is blended with Mediterranean varieties, like Syrah and Carignan, to create a unique "Super-Med." I Perazzi Morellino di Scansano DOCG is the foundation of the winery, and focuses on the pure, clean fruit of this Sangiovese clone. A percentage of Alicante and Syrah are added to give this Morellino a distinct flavor profile.

Legendary in Italy for its Renaissance art and striking landscape, Tuscany is also home to many of the country’s best red wines. Sangiovese reigns supreme here, as either the single varietal, or a dominant player, in almost all of Tuscany’s best.

A remarkable Chianti, named for its region of origin, will have a bright acidity, supple tannins and plenty of cherry fruit character. From the hills and valleys surrounding the medieval village of Montalcino, come the distinguished and age-worthy wines based on Brunello (Sangiovese). Earning global acclaim since the 1970s, the Tuscan Blends are composed solely of international grape varieties or a mix of international and Sangiovese. The wine called Vine Nobile di Montepulciano, composed of Prognolo Gentile (Sangiovese) and is recognized both for finesse and power.
