With this outstanding Chianti Classico Riserva, the Marquis Mazzei celebrate their notable ancestor Ser Lapo, author of the first official document mentioning “Chianti wine”.
97 Points Decanter ... This is a stunning wine with a complex cherry, prune, herbal, leather and balsamic bouquet. Excels on the concentrated and succulent palate, with lovely mouthfeel and lots of spicy, smooth, fleshy tannins, superfine acidity and great length.
Food pairings ... pasta with a hearty tomato sauce, stews, grilled red meats and mid-aged cheeses.
Blend: 90% Sangiovese, 10% Merlot
