Winemaker Notes

Intense and deep ruby ??color, the nose offers a fruit of extreme maturity supported by the classic floral notes of iris and balsamic and mentholated hints, spices and sweet tobacco. In the mouth it is balanced thanks to a perfect fusion of structure, softness, acidity, tannins and flavor in an aromatic finish where the warm aromas of ripe fruit and the freshness of balsamic notes persist.

The sensorial characteristics of great structure and softness accompanied by an aromatic range of fruit and sweet spices make it an ideal companion for meat and cheese dishes, with particular preference for tasty ones, such as game using spices or aged cheeses.

Wine Enthusiast
Aromas of violet, dark-skinned berry and pipe tobacco fill the glass. The focused, elegant palate delivers juicy black cherry, star anise, clove and aromatic herb alongside fine-grained tannins.

Lamole di Lamole, Italy
Lamole di Lamole  Winery Image

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. 

Since the 1800s, the Lamole valley has been renowned as one of the “cradles” of fine Chianti. Our winery is named after this valley and its history is just as revered. The historical Lamole di Lamole stone walls were rebuilt into the hillsides in the 1990s. These terraces, made from the local Macigno del Chianti rock, absorb and reflect the sun’s rays during the day and release heat during the night, so to provide the warmth that the vines need through the growing season. 

The Lamole di Lamole vineyards in the hills of Chianti Classico are planted at some of the highest elevations of the region (1600 feet above sea level). The warm Tuscan sun and ventilation at these altitudes ensures even ripening and prevents dehydration in the grapes.

The estate grows the native Chianti grape varieties (sangiovese, canaiolo, malvasia nera and trebbiano toscano, the latter reserved for its Vinsanto) and several international ones, such as cabernet sauvignon, merlot, petit verdot and alicante.

Chianti Classico Wine

Tuscany, Italy

View all products

One of the first wine regions anywhere to be officially recognized and delimited, Chianti Classico is today what was originally defined simply as Chianti. Already identified by the early 18th century as a superior zone, the official name of Chianti was proclaimed upon the area surrounding the townships of Castellina, Radda and Gaiole, just north of Siena, by Cosimo III, Grand Duke of Tuscany in an official decree in 1716.

However, by the 1930s the Italian government had appended this historic zone with additonal land in order to capitalize on the Chianti name. It wasn’t until 1996 that Chianti Classico became autonomous once again when the government granted a separate DOCG (Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita) to its borders. Ever since, Chianti Classico considers itself no longer a subzone of Chianti.

Many Classicos are today made of 100% Sangiovese but can include up to 20% of other approved varieties grown within the Classico borders. The best Classicos will have a bright acidity, supple tannins and be full-bodied with plenty of ripe fruit (plums, black cherry, blackberry). Also common among the best Classicos are expressive notes of cedar, dried herbs, fennel, balsamic or tobacco.
