2016 is an important year for Chianti Classico: it’s celebrating 300 years of history of a unique denomination, produced in an extraordinary region that has always been an ideal zone for the production of extremely high-quality wines.
Such a significant anniversary has to be celebrated in the best possible way. The first major appointment organized for this purpose was held on 15th and 16th February: the “Chianti Classico Collection 2016”.
In the atmospheric setting of the Leopolda Station in Florence, the Gallo Nero producers presented their new vintages at a truly unique event: 165 companies offered 587 different wines for tasting, a total of 7000 bottles which, in the two days of the “Collection”, won over both the members of the trade and wine lovers attending.
As always, the “Chianti Classico Collection” was a fascinating and exciting occasion for Lamole di Lamole, at which we presented the fruits of our hard work: those who came to see us were able to enjoy a preview tasting of the 2013 Chianti Classico, the 2012 Riserva and the 2011 Gran Selezione Vigneto di Campolungo (this last wine is already on the market).
The 2013 Chianti Classico will be available towards the end of spring this year, the 2012 Riserva at the beginning of autumn.
The next event where you will be able to find these great wines “in the glass” will therefore be the 50th edition of Vinitaly, in Verona, on our stand: a date when the fans of the Chianti Classicos from Lamole di Lamole will be able to relieve their suffering after months of waiting for the new vintages!
