Fontodi’s owner-winemaker, Giovanni Manetti, has long considered Chianti Classico’s Lamole region special, and this wine proves him right. Fontodi's newest wine comes from his cousin's 7ha holdings in the cool zone of Lamole. The terraced vineyards sit at 600 metres above sea level on sandstone soil. Fermented in cement and aged in French oak casks.
The 2019 Chianti Classico Filetta di Lamole is fruity, open-knit and delicious, all of which make it a fine choice for drinking now and over the next handful of years. The mix of forward fruit and freshness from this high altitude site works so well. Bright red/purplish fruit, rose petal, mint and spice linger. This is such a classy wine.

Such beautiful aromas of freshly cut orchids, dark plums and peaches. Medium-to full-bodied with ultra-fine tannins and a bright, linear finish. A classic Chianti Classico from this area. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold. Date: July 2022; Rating: 95 Points; James Suckling
