The 2014 Chianti Classico Filetta di Lamole is striking. This high-altitude site, with its sandy and rocky soils, yields a perfumed, aromatically expressive Chianti Classico endowed with translucent finesse and energy. Rose petal, lavender, mint and sweet red cherry are nicely pushed forward, but it is the wine's gracious, perfumed personality that stands out most. The 2014 is all finesse. Drink: 2017-2026 (Jan16)

A wine created by Giovanni Manetti, the man behind the famous Tuscan estate Fontodi. Lamole is a high altitude vineyard above the Panzano (620 metres above sea level) planted in the 1920's. This high altitude vineyard creates scented, elegant almost Pinot Noir like wines that spend time in larger oak as opposed to the smaller barriques used at Fontodi. Cuttings from this Lamole vineyard were used to propagate the clones used to replant the Fontodi vineyards.
