Lamole di Lamole ‘Lareale’ Chianti Classico Riserva

RM242.0

This Riserva has merited a name that is intended to celebrate its character: honest and straightforward, yet regal at the same time. An impeccable interpretation of the most distinctive and original elements of its zone of provenance, the area of Lamole, it is – for us – the perfect representation of the concept of a Riserva wine. Austere and refined, Lareale Chianti Classico Riserva is our passe-partout for the generations of the future.
The bunches, which come mainly from the Il Prato and Le Masse vineyards lying at between 470 and 655 meters above sea level, underwent optical berry selection. After delicate pressing, the must began fermentation, with maceration on the skins for approximately 12 days at a temperature of 24-26a°C as well as periodic pumping over and delestage in order to obtain optimum extraction of the anthocyanins and tannins. During the following spring, the wine was put into 30-50 hectoliter casks to mature for at least two years prior to the final assemblage and bottling.
Its deep ruby red color acts as a prelude to scents of wild red berry fruits and floral aromas of violets and broom, as well as balsamic hints and those of underbrush. Its development on the palate is harmonious yet incisive, more dynamic than muscular, and more mineral than tangy, with fine-grained tannins and lively freshness sustaining the tight, elegant fruit. The aromatic finish is deliciously persistent. Not only the usual Fiorentina steak or rosticciana of pork. Our Riserva has energy and intensity in spades, and can be paired magnificently with oven-baked vegetable dishes, as well as with game, offal, and braised or stewed meats; if necessary, it can stand up to the aromatic force of truffles or that of very 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.
