DUELAME

CHIANTI CLASSICO DOCG

It is the typical altitude and soil that inspired the name of Duelame Chianti Classico D.O.C.G.. It is produced from vineyards planted with indigenous grapes lying at the estate’s two extremes of altitude, the lower at 420 meters and the higher one at 655, lying on lame (literally, “blades”) of land, those stratified terraces rich in mineral substances to which Lamole owes its name and which make the landscape of Chianti Classico unique. The wine we obtain is intense and spontaneously heroic in taste.

GRAPES

Sangiovese, Canaiolo Nero

PRODUCTION ZONE

Lamole, in the commune of Greve in Chianti

ALTITUDE

420-655 mt a.s.l.

AGING POTENTIAL

5/6 years

The grapes, grown in various vineyards lying at between 420 and 655 meters above sea level in the different hamlets that make up the village of Lamole, are destalked and the berries are passed through an optical selector. After they have been pressed, the must ferments – together with the skins – in stainless steel tanks, where it remains until late in winter.

Its bright ruby red color introduces us to a floral bouquet of iris and violets, along with scents of red berries and hints of aromatic herbs. It is fresh and generous on the palate.

An ideal red for accompanying traditional Tuscan dishes such as pappa al pomodoro (bread and tomato soup) or pici with game sauces, but also – served cool – selections of rustic cold cuts, a tartare of raw meat, testaroli with a basil pesto, or even fish with various sauces.
