Chianti Classico Riserva Ser Lapo

2014 Italy Tuscany
91 Points

The 2014 Chianti Classico Riserva Ser Lapo is a very good wine, especially within the context of the vintage. Not surprisingly, the 2014 is a bit youthfully austere today, but it makes up for that with fine persistence. Expressive floral and savory overtones add perfume to the dark red stone fruit flavors. Give the 2014 another 6-12 months in bottle to allow the tannins to soften further.

Chianti Classico Riserva Ser Lapo

2014 Italy Tuscany
90 Points

The 2014 Chianti Classico Riserva Ser Lapo is a lovely wine that does a great job with the presumably reduced fruit selection available in this challenging vintage. This is a single-vineyard blend of 90% Sangiovese and 10% Merlot. The wine shows red fruit, spice, tobacco and dried cherry over a smooth and silky mouthfeel. It would make a fitting companion to fire-grilled T-bone steak.

Prosecco

92 Points

Pale straw color. Fruity, floral aromas and flavors of summer peach, honeysuckle, lilac, sweet basil, and starfruit with a silky, crisp, effervescent, dry-yet-fruity full body and a seamless, charming, medium-length sweet almond and sea salt finish with no oak. A tasty, crowd-pleasing prosecco with lovely depth of flavor.

Cornas "Les Ruchets"

2015 France Rhone Valley
93 Points

Inky ruby. Highly perfumed cassis, boysenberry, licorice, smoked meat and mineral scents show excellent detail. Densely packed and appealingly sweet, offering concentrated flavors of ripe black and blue fruits, vanilla and violet pastille. Shows impressive depth on the persistent finish, which features harmonious tannins and a vibrant echo of smoky minerality.
