Mazzei Ser Lapo Chianti Classico Riserva 2019

Tuscany, ItalyA nice uptick for a wine that sometimes can be disjointed in the sense of being overbearing for a Chianti. Not so in 2019. I love the earthy herbal undernotes that stage for more decadent, darker black raspberry and slippery but structured tannins. A sense of elegance balances it as it rides out a lingering, fresh, mineral finish. There is no rush to drink this, as it will effortlessly age through 2027. Osso buco would be a fine match. Good value.Tasted: 30 June 2023Tasted by: Prices:
