Mazzei Ser Lapo Chianti Classico Riserva 2008

All wines tasted at the party held for baby Thomas on 25/08/2012. 13.5%, cork closure. About £20 - £25 UK retail (e.g. Slurp, Carluccios). Superb, massive wine with a great future – this is very young; too young to enjoy. Not as good as the stellar 2006, but still a very fine wine. Dark cherry red, tight red berries fruit nose, huge concentration and tannins in the mouth, long finish. Needs another 5 years at least. From 2015, 18/20
