The Wine List is my retirement project to sample wine made from the main grape varieties listed in Hugh Johnson’s Pocket Wine Book.
The wine: Lamole di Lamole Chianti Classico Riserva 2011
Alc Vol: 13.5%
HJ says: “Principal red grape of Tuscany and central Italy. Hard to get right, but sublime and long-lasting when it is…Dominant in Chianti.”
The label says: No idea. It’s in Italian. I don’t understand Italian.
We drank it with: Roast duck.
Retired Bloke Verdict. I liked it a lot; so did The Current Mrs Feeney, who is not normally a red wine fan. We’re both guessing that the producers got the Sangiovese right. I’d very happily drink this again.
