This -08 Mazzei is dark purple slightly oily; has a nose of decadent overripe dark fruit (plums, figs, mulberries), dusty ’sangiovesc’ diesel, pencil shavings, mineral and wood chips; dry on the palate with fine tannins and pleasant structure, same fruits as on the nose, and a medium-length finish. It is silkier than younger tuscans and has more earth and depth but perhaps lacking in elegans. Expected more.

Excellent chianti with berries and eucalyptus tannins. Good balance and not too pricy.

16/20 (88/100) много ягод, вишня, слива, пирог с ягодами. Аккуратно, деликатно, интеллигентно.

Beautiful balance of ripe red fruit and acid, enveloped in oak and soft tannins; è delizioso!

Great wine! Made out of 18 sangiovese clones, blend of 50 separately vinificated wines selected from 120 vineyards. Lovely cedar tones in nose and palate
