Details

Winemaker Notes:With this outstanding Chianti Classico Riserva, the Marquis Mazzei celebrate their notable ancestor Ser Lapo, author of the first official document mentioning “Chianti wine”. Ruby red color with violet nuances. On the nose, bright aromas of fresh cherries mingle with notes of thyme and a subtle smoky character. Bright acid structure providing a lively quality. Cranberry, raspberry, and red cherry dominate with hints of leather, cedar, and cocoa powder. Some earthiness in the finish and ripe soft tannins. Food pairings include pasta with game sauce, stews, grilled red meats, and mid-aged cheeses.

CRITICAL ACCLAIM


James Suckling - "Black cherry, bark and earth on the nose with some dark-mushroom character. It’s full-bodied with very soft tannins and a juicy, savory finish. Wet-earth and forest-floor character comes through nicely at the finish. Drink or hold."


Wilfred Wong - "The 2018 Mazzei Ser Lapo Chianti Classico Riserva is bright, lively, and lasting on the palate. This wine offers excellent aromas and flavors of black fruit, licorice, and earth. Enjoy its authenticity with a well-seasoned, oven-roasted pork loin."
