2016 Lamole di Lamole "Lam'Oro" Toscana IGT
There are very few places as intimate and enchanting as Lamole. Its wines have characteristics as unique, distinctive, and inimitable as the region. Organically managed vineyards in the heart of the Chianti Classico region produce wines with an impressive flavor profile with refinement and depth.
LAM’ORO is a Super Tuscan, named for the Lamole terroir that is unique and seductive: the Oro (“Gold”) of Lamole. It features a beautiful blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot.
Each of the three grape varietals is picked when perfectly ripe. They are then vinified and fermented individually under controlled temperature (between 75 – 82 °F). Skin maceration follows to highlight each varietal’s specific aromatic and structural characteristics.
A deep, concentrated ruby color provides a foretaste of its rich aromas, which open up with blackberries, blueberries, and dried wildflowers with layers of toast and cinnamon. On the palate, this complexity of sensations is anchored by dense tannins, which create a silky texture. A pleasing salinity and acidity give vibrancy to its taste profile, and the delightful persistence of the fruit beckons one to take another sip.
Although it is a wine of complex structure, it demonstrates unique versatility when it comes to food pairing, especially with full-flavored dishes.
Red meats, rich poultry, and wild game are entrees of choice, either prepared simply or more elaborately with rich, herbaceous sauces. Mature cheeses are another avenue of exploration, as are spicy dishes full of peppery heat.
