Mazzei Ser Lapo Chianti Classico Riserva 2018

Tuscany, ItalyA 90/10 blend of sangiovese and merlot from Cornia and Caggiolo, this complex, seamless Chianti Classico Riserva shows a lifted nose of dark berries, sundried tomato, and cedar, with just a hint of oak spices from the judicial use of French barriques and puncheons. The concentrated fruit effortlessly carries the 50 percent new wood, benefiting from vines ranging from 15 to 30 years old. Rich and supple, this is just beginning to enter its prime drinking window, with a woody grip to the finish. A beautiful expression of Chianti Classico.Tasted: 05 September 2022Tasted by: Prices:
