Natalie's Score: 92/100

From the Tuscany wine region, Mazzei Ser Lapo Reserva 2017 Chianti Classico is a medium-plus-bodied 90% Sangiovese and 10% Merlot red wine blend fragrant with dried pink florals, savoury mushroom and ripe cherry aromas on the nose; vibrant and fresh on the palate with flavours of cherry, ripe strawberry, red berry and dark plum balanced with food-friendly acidity. Good now, better in 2022.

Chianti Classico Riserva food pairings: ravioli, beef stew, pizza, pork chops.
