Despite the difficulties that this choice may entail, we at Le Masse di Lamole have decided to continue with some of the typical traditions to produce a true wine of our territory.

The terraces

This type of cultivation is the way in which farmers in the Chianti Classico have grown, but above all, respected the land for centuries by promoting its conservation. We have therefore decided to keep the original terraces, with the typical dry stone walls, present in our vineyards. With our effort to preserve them, we are also proud to have contributed to the recognition of Lamole as a “Paesaggio rurale storico” (historic rural landscape).On the terraces the vines are still grown “ad alberello”(ie. “little tree”bushvines), a common practice in Lamole until the 1970s.


The indigenous grape of Chianti Classico: not always easy to vinify, it is the fundamental ingredient of our wines, which pays homage to the role of “King” of all Lamolese grapes.

The large wooden casks

They have always been the vessel in which
Chianti Classico is aged. We have therefore restored the ancient casks of our cellar: chestnut vats are used for the maturation of our Chianti Classico and Gran Selezione, with oak used for the Chianti Classico Riserva.

Il Giaggiolo

The iris is the flower that transforms the Chianti Classico into a magical place in the month of May. This purple flower which is the symbol of Florence, along with its dried roots, are highly sought after in France for its use in cosmetics and has allowed the estate to survive the difficult times.

Since we are here today, thanks to this flower, we continue to cultivate it and we have even made it the symbol of the company.
