VIGNETO DI CAMPOLUNGO

CHIANTI CLASSICO DOCG GRAN SELEZIONE

From grapes of portentous aromatic intensity from the historic Campolungo vineyard, which stretches from 420 to 580 metres above sea level amidst historic terraces, arises this Chianti Classico Gran Selezione. But it is only the winemaking wisdom of Lamole di Lamole that transforms it into the stratified and solemn wine that declares its origin already in its name, Vigneto di Campolungo Chianti Classico Gran Selezione. The result of one of our best vineyards, a synthesis of our dedication.

PRODUCTION ZONE

Lamole, Campolungo vineyard

ALTITUDE

420 - 576 mt a.s.l.

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.
