Reviews and Ratings

The Mazzei family have been the owners of this Italian winery, Castello di Fonterutoli, since 1435. The 2013 vintage of the Chianti Classico Riserva Ser Lapo offers black fruit aromas and firm tannins. Juicy and full-bodied Italian red wine with lots of wild black cherry notes, some smoke and mocha. This Chianti Classico Riserva Ser Lapo is made from Sangiovese grapes. Savoury and meaty with a long finish. Decant 2 hours for maximum pleasure. Pair with grilled meats. MINE: From the Tuscany wine region, Mazzei Ser Lapo Riserva (2013) is a juicy and full-bodied Chianti Classico wine blend of 90% Sangiovese and 10% Merlot with black cherry, smoke and mocha flavours. The Mazzei family have been the owners of this Italian winery, Castello di Fonterutoli, since 1435. Drink now and for the next five years. OTHER: The 2014 Chianti Classico Riserva Ser Lapo is a very good wine, especially within the context of the vintage. Not surprisingly, the 2014 is a bit youthfully austere today, but it makes up for that with fine persistence. Expressive floral and savory overtones add perfume to the dark red stone fruit flavors. Give the 2014 another 6-12 months in bottle to allow the tannins to soften further. Score - 91 (Antonio Galloni, vinous.com, Jan. 2018). - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
