    About the winemakers
    Lamole di Lamole
    Tuscany | Chianti
    Lamole di Lamole

    The red grape varieties of this estate grow between the typical Tuscan villages of Lamole and Pile not far from Greve in Chianti Classico. From the terraced vineyards, visitors look out over the hills of Chianti. The Lamole Castle, which was mentioned as an important fortress in 1480, used to stand here. A High Commissioner of the Chianti Zone once lived there. The renovated farmhouses of the Lamole di Lamole estate are now used for storing wine in the 5,000-litre wooden barrels that are common here and for making Vin Santo. The winery is owned by the Gruppo Santa Margherita from Veneto, which also owns the Fattoria Vistarenni in Gaiole in the historic Chianti area.

    Of the 141 hectares of forest, vineyards and olive groves, 50 hectares are used for grape production. The vineyard hills reach an altitude of between 350 and 700 metres above sea level, one of the highest in the Chianti Classico area. The wines of Lamole di Lamole therefore do not quite reach the power of the plants that thrive in lower growing areas, but have a lot of finesse and a fine fruit.

    By increasing the planting density from 3,350 (old vineyards) to 5,150 vines per hectare, the prerequisite was created for a comprehensive and strict clone selection, which finally led to the localization of a "lamole" of the Sangiovese branch, which dominates the vineyards. The terraced shape of the vineyards has a positive effect on the photosynthesis of the vines, according to the manager Andrea Daldin.

    The Lamole di Lamole winery produces varieties of Chianti Classico and Vin Santo, a honey-sweet wine. Chianti Classico Riserva is made from selected fruits. The best vineyard is called Campolungo. This is where the grapes for Chianti Classico Riserva come from. "Vigneto di Campolungo"The wine is only bottled in good harvest years and in the 2010 vintage it was elevated to the Olympus of the highest Chianti Classico quality level Gran Selezione for the first time.
