Lamole di Lamole
Lamole di Lamole is a Tuscan wine producer situated in the Chianti Classico region. The estate can trace its origins back more than 700 years and today makes a portfolio of classic Chianti wines based on regional grape varieties including Sangiovese, Canaiolo, Malvasia Nera and Trebbiano Toscano.
In the Middle Ages, the vineyards of Lamole were so valued by the Gherardini family that they constructed a fortified castle in 1350 in order to safeguard them. By the 19th Century the hamlet of Lamole was famed for its Chianti wines, with several citations from the era describing it as one of the "cradles" of Chianti fine wine. Lamole di Lamole was later acquired by Santa Margherita in 1993. This signified the beginning of extensive restoration and development works in the vineyards, including the reconstruction of the terraced vineyard system and the implementation of organic farming methods.
