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.
