Lamole di Lamole ‘Vigneto Di Campolungo’ Chianti Classico Gran Selezione 2015

RM342.0

From grapes of portentous aromatic intensity from the historic Campolungo vineyard, which stretches from 420 to 580 metres above sea level amidst historic terraces, arises this Chianti Classico Gran Selezione. But it is only the winemaking wisdom of Lamole di Lamole that transforms it into the stratified and solemn wine that declares its origin already in its name, Vigneto di Campolungo Chianti Classico Gran Selezione. The result of one of our best vineyards, a synthesis of our dedication.

The grapes, picked in the after careful selection, are destalked and pass through an optical sorter. Following pressing, the must ferments in 50 hl truncated cone-shaped vats, with maceration on the skins for about two weeks. This is followed by a period of maturation of at least 30 months in medium-sized oak barrels, with a small proportion in barriques.
A concentrated, bright ruby red color acts as a prelude to the bouquet of violets and red and black berry fruits, which mingle attractively with spicy and balsamic aromas. On the palate, it is powerful and vigorous, dynamic and elegant. Because of its concentration and depth, this is a wine with a natural disposition for pairing with food, especially with richly flavored soups, pasta dishes with game sauces, and meat recipes that are slow-cooked or include spices and herbs. Excellent with more mature cheeses.

Description

The production potential of Lamole, a hamlet of Greve in Chianti, was first discovered by the Romans, who established vineyards and olive groves on the high hills they’d recognized as ideal farming country. Indeed, the well-aspected site overlooking the Tyrrhenian Sea is characterized by a natural amphitheatre that is protected by Monte San Michele to the north and exposed to long hours of sunlight.

In the Middle Ages production became so important that Lamole was protected by a castle built by the Florentine Gherardini family in 1350, whose extensive ruins can still be seen today. The village was famed for its production of orris root essence, obtained from the Florentine iris, a fragrance prized at the French court of Catherine de’ Medici.

This tradition of quality, clearly exemplified in the complex system of terraces, continued over the following centuries, and in the 1800s Lamole was cited in contemporary publications as one of the ‘cradles’ of fine Chianti.
