Bottle size: 750 ml

Alcohol: 13.5%

Natalie's Score: 92/100

The Mazzei family have been the owners of this Italian winery, Castello di Fonterutoli, since 1435. The 2014 was a cool and wet vintage year for Tuscany, but this Chianti Classico Riserva Ser Lapo is expressive with a floral and fresh red berry nose and dark red fruits and savoury herb flavours on the palate. Tannins are a bit grippy, but this should resolve in time.

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

Reviews and Ratings

Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Beautiful and a great value Chianti. Ruby red, densely concentrated. Gorgeous on the eyes both in the glass and the bottle with a gorgeous wrap with red wax seal over an image from 1404 AD. Red fruit, great food friendly acidity. Pair with your favourite tomato based Authentic Italian pasta dish. Tasted 2014 vintage in September 2018 after a 2h decant. 92 points
Mazzei Ser Lapo Riserva 2014 is a Chianti Classico from the Tuscany wine region. The Mazzei family have been the owners of this Italian winery, Castello di Fonterutoli, since 1435. 2014 was a cool and wet vintage year for Tuscany, but this Chianti Classico Riserva Ser Lapo is expressive with a floral and fresh red berry nose and dark red fruits and savoury herb flavours on the palate. Tannins are a bit grippy, but this should resolve in time. Pair with a rich meaty pasta and a richer tomato sauce. - Community Wine Reviews
