Mazzei Ser Lapo Chianti Classico Riserva 2016

Tuscany, ItalyThe Ser Lapo Chianti Classico Riserva celebrates the Mazzei ancestor, who was penned the first official document mentioning Chianti wine. A modern look at Chianti, the 90/10 mix of sangiovese and other local varieties plus merlot opens with a fragrant fresh cherry nose and a whack of savoury, dried herbs and cedar. The palate is silky smooth with an intense mix of leather cedar, spice, and smoky dark fruit. Youthful, but you can approach this now, especially if you serve it with mushrooms or roast chicken. It will no doubt improve further in the bottle through 2024.Tasted: 09 October 2020Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
