About the Wine:
Lamole is a forgotten corner of Chianti, located high above Panzano. Some parcels of old Sangiovese, grown as sapling, survived the decimation of replanting in the early 1970s. It is from these old vines, planted in the 1920s, that Giovanni Manetti di Fontodi took the cuttings to propagate his clones and replant his vineyards in Fontodi. It is partly from these old vines that the quality and intensity of Fontodi derives.

Giovanni had long cherished the dream of producing a wine in Lamole , considering it one of the most distinctive areas of Chianti. The hamlet is 620 meters above sea level. The wines come from sandy soils and are fragrant and elegant, the bouquet develops in the cool nights and from the long ripening season at this altitude. Giovanni Manetti convinced his cousin, Lorenzo Socci, to work with him on seven hectares of vineyards on a property called Filetta . Together they restored the vineyard and in 2014 they harvested their first grapes.

Ratings & Reviews

93 Points - James Suckling (2020 Vintage):
"Fascinating aromas of cherry, cedar, dried flowers and sandalwood follow through to a medium body, with finely chewy tannins and a tensioned and fine finish. From organically grown grapes. A year or two of bottle age more will make it even better, but very pretty already." (August 2023)
