Lamole di Lamole Chianti Classico DOCG
Description A delightful bouquet of violet and blue flowers, raspberry and pomegranate, with some underlying hints of precious spices. Fresh on the palate, with delicate tannins and a satisfying tanginess on the finish; the overall impression is one of hearty, yet in a sense refined spontaneity.

Vinification In stainless steel with a brief maceration on the skins; maturation for 6 months in stainless steel, then one year in large (50 and 70 hl) casks.
