Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Chianti Classico Riserva Ser Lapo is an excellent wine with gorgeous smoothness and soft tannins. This 90/10 blend of Sangiovese and Merlot shows the best of both grapes in their respective percentages. Production numbers are large - at 100,000 bottles - so you should have no problem locating this easy-to-drink and affordable red wine from beautiful Tuscany. Ser Lapo is dedicated to the Mazzei family ancestor who first mentioned a "Chianti" wine in the distant year of 1398.

Wine EnthusiastAromas of exotic spice, pressed blue flower, menthol and an earthy whiff of forest floor slowly take shape. The tight, youthfully austere palate offers dried cherry, star anise, espresso and thyme while assertive, fine-grained tannins and vibrant acidity provide firm support. Best after 2020.

Wine SpectatorA fluid red, boasting cherry, raspberry, spice and earth flavors, matched to a firm backbone of acidity and tannins. Long and lightly chewy in the end. Drink now through 2020. 8,333 cases made.
