The I Fabbri winery produces only products of the generous hills of Lamole: wine and oil that are a story of ancient values, of clean agriculture, of a unique territory that is situated in the highest part of the Chianti Classico, between the terraced vineyards, woods and olive trees. An organic Tuscan wine, son of the Sangiovese grape.
With its 700 meters of altitude, Lamole is considered the roof of the Chianti Classico. Nine hectares of vineyards and two of olive trees, set in an extraordinary hilly environment surrounded by woodland, with the ancient village that like a wise man watches its land. Here the vineyards founder their roots in centenary terraces shaped like a natural amphitheatre, exposed towards the south, south-west.
