Dark in color with a mild cherry nose. On the mid palate the wine packs a punch with vibrant dark cherries, dark chocolate tomato and mocha notes. On the medium length finish especially without food the wine displays lovely rich, firm, velvety tannins and vibrant acidity … nice and dry. This is a beautifully complex Chianti classico, definitely a yum wine. I would give it an 88+. From the LCBO web site, check stock:
This wine is 90% Sangiovese and 10% Merlot sourced from vines 15-30 years of age. It takes its name from Marquis Mazzei’s distinguished ancestor Ser Lapo, who is credited with authoring the first official mention of Chianti, on Dec. 16, 1398. It’s fresh and structured, with dark cherry, blackberry, smoke and earth. A wine of depth and complexity that will cellar for a decade or more.
