Lamole di Lamole ‘Vigneto Di Campolungo’ Chianti Classico Gran SelezioneRM342.0 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.

The production potential of Lamole, now a hamlet of Greve in Chianti, was first discovered by the Romans, who established vineyards and olive groves on the high fertile hills. Over the centuries, the valley’s wine production became so important that Lamole was protected by a castle built by the Florentine Gherardini family in 1350. The castle’s extensive ruins can still be seen today, and its former cellars are now the location of our winery. In the past century, as many villagers left the valley heights for industrialized towns below, small groups of dedicated artisans and farmers have tended and carefully restored ancient terraces and vines with meticulous attention to the integrity of the natural environment and the landscape. This “Lamole method” – continues today in the progressive organic conversion of the Lamole di Lamole vineyards, allowing us to continue producing wines that capture rustic heartiness and timeless character. These masterpieces of Chianti Classico pair beautifully with the most flavorful of traditional Italian cooking and inspire the gourmet spirit. Lamole di Lamole draws its name and its character from the enchanting valley first discovered and cultivated by the Romans, and where these fine Chianti Classico wines were born. Selected from exclusive lines of grapes, shaped by the valley’s unique microclimate, and crafted in the cellars of an ancient castle, the wines of Lamole di Lamole offer exceptional flavors that complement the finest traditional meals and which only get better with age.
