Mazzei Ser Lapo Chianti Classico Riserva 2007 (Italy) Add to ...

  • Rating 91
  • Year 2007
  • Food Pairing Juicy beef
  • Price $24.95

Still tannic and tight, Mazzei’s Ser Lapo is built for cellaring. Dark fruit and cherry mingle with tobacco and a quality that reminds me of dry soil. It should improve with three to 12 years of bottle rest, although, if you want to enjoy it now, pair it with juicy beef, which will soften the astringent tannins. $34.99 in B.C.
