VIGNA GROSPOLI

CHIANTI CLASSICO DOCG GRAN SELEZIONE

A vineyard lying on ancient terraces, cultivated using the archaic alberello lamolese bush training system, gives its name to our Vigna Grospoli Chianti Classico Gran Selezione. The sandy soil of the Chianti massif - together with the constant exposure to breezes and to very bright sunlight - creates the ideal conditions for a charming, lyrical wine. It is complex in structure, rich in aromatic nuances, and seductive on the palate: this is the poetry of Lamole di Lamole.

GRAPES

PRODUCTION ZONE

The Grospoli vineyard at Lamole, in the commune of Greve in Chianti

ALTITUDE

540 – 580 mt a.l.s.

AGING POTENTIAL

8/10 years

The grapes, picked in the after careful selection, are destalked and pass through an optical sorter. Following pressing, the must ferments in 50 hl truncated cone-shaped vats, with maceration on the skins for about two weeks. This is followed by a period of maturation of at least 30 months in medium-sized oak barrels, with a small proportion having its élevage in barriques.

A concentrated, bright ruby red color acts as a prelude to the bouquet of violets and red and black berry fruits, which mingle attractively with spicy and balsamic aromas. On the palate, it is powerful and vigorous, dynamic and elegant.

Because of its concentration and depth, this is a wine with a natural disposition for pairing with food, especially with richly flavored soups, pasta dishes with game sauces, and meat recipes that are slow-cooked or include spices and herbs. Excellent with more mature cheeses.
