Lamole Di Lamole Vinsanto Del Chianti Classico (500ml)
The life of the Vinsanto begins in the first days that the north wind starts to blow, enabling us – during the harvest – to pick dry, healthy bunches which are ready to be hung up or laid out in the drying rooms. The grapes remain there drying until their concentration of sugars has reached the desired level. They are then pressed very gently, and the must thus obtained is put into caratelli.
Fermentation begins, thanks to the high sugar content of the must. After around 16 months the wine is racked in order to clarify it and it is then put back into the barrels, which are hermetically sealed. The Vinsanto continues its maturation in wood for a further 20 months, concentrating all those sensations which will then burst forth from the glass.
It is an attractive amber in appearance, with plenty of orangey highlights: its very color and viscosity seem to give an indication of its richness. On the nose, a whole series of positive and powerful sensations invite us to taste it: alcohol, oak, honey and a fresh, acidulous vein, hint at its austere strength. On the palate, we find the same precise and assertive sensations we observed on the nose.
<strong “=””>Crafted from organically-grown grapes
Since the 1800s, Lamole has been recognized as one of the ‘cradles’ of fine Chianti. 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.
