Castello di Fonterutoli Chianti Classico Riserva Ser Lapo 2010

Member Review by zufrieden:

This Chianti Classico Riserva by Marchesi Mazzei is a great find; the nose evokes a bucolic setting with sedge grass, wild herb, cranberry, cherry and (yes) hard, wrought iron! The palate receives an elegant panoply of sweet cherry and almond with a dollop of fruit sugar. This is an astounding value. Has some acid and structure for further aging but great right now. 90 points.
