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 hills they’d recognized as ideal farming country. The Lamole di Lamole vineyards occupy south-facing plots at various altitudes between 350 and 550 metres above sea level and are among the most scenic and evocative spots in the entire village. The current cellar is next to the oldest vineyard, which was planted on 20 March 1945.
Lam’Oro is a stunning example of the territory’s winemaking potential and capacity to unite two varieties as different as Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese, shaping Cabernet’s elegant exuberance with the incisive austerity of Sangiovese to forge a solid, enduring marriage.
This wine has a deep, intense ruby red colour; forest fruits-led fragrances interweave with flowers and vanilla and liquorice-like spiciness; breadth on the palate accompanies vibrant muscularity and a soft mouthfeel to achieve a thrilling balance of power and elegance as fruitiness and spice aromas alternate with florality, balsamic notes and hints of forest fruits.
