IN THE HEART
OF CHIANTI CLASSICO
The Lamole di Lamole Estate was founded shortly after World War II.
The historic winery, which houses aging cellars and the vinsantaia (Vinsanto cellar), dates from the mid-fourteenth century. It was part of the Castle of Lamole.
This structure is now flanked by a more modern winery nearby and a facility down in the valley, in the area of Greti.
The estate covers over 700 acres, 99 of which are under vine in the Lamole area. The average age of our vineyards is around 25-30 years, with a “peak” age of 74 years in the upper part of the Il Prato vineyard.
In 2005, we began the process of sustainable conversion. We are proud to say that we are now 100% fully organic.
Sustainability includes the use of organic compost derived from vine prunings and stalks from the harvested grapes as a natural soil improver.
We use natural “resistance inducers” such as seaweed, aloe, and propolis, which help stimulate the vines’ self-protection systems and make them more reactive to external attacks. We rely only on natural substances and refrain from using chemical products in the vineyards.
All of these practices aim to enhance our wines’ terroir characteristics. We are convinced that everything that derives from a healthy environment, managed in an intelligent, measured manner with respect for the life cycles of its various components, adds a unique value to our wines.
