Lamole Di Lamole Vinsanto Del Chianti Classico

RM185.0

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.

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.
