Description

History

The Mazzei family has been producing wine since the eleventh century in Tuscany. Ser Lapo Mazzei is in fact known for having been the first to draw up a document in 1398 for the denomination of “Chianti”; subsequently, in 1435, his niece Madonna Smeralda Mazzei marries Piero Agnolo da Fonterutoli and thanks to the union, the Castle becomes part of the family heritage. Today the family has even reached the 24th generation of winemakers. Another key figure in the history of the family is Filippo “Philip” Mazzei, a close friend of Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin among others. Today the company is led by Lapo Mazzei, Cavaliere del Lavoro and president of the Chianti Classico Consortium for over 20 years, and his sons Filippo and Francesco.

Grapes used

Sangiovese 90%

Merlot 10%

Production method

The grapes are gently pressed to extract the must, which is fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats.

After fermentation, the wine is left to rest in French oak barrels for at least 24 months, which gives it its characteristic complexity and structure. Finally, the wine is bottled and left to mature in the cellar for at least 3 months before being marketed.

Alcohol content

13.5%

Tasting notes

Intense ruby red color tending towards garnet. On the nose typical Sangiovese notes of cherry, raspberry and currant, with gaggiolo, violet and rose petals, black pepper and cloves in a very elegant sequence. Fresh, balanced, soft and delicate on the palate, rightly alcoholic and medium-bodied; brighter tannins, lively acidity and a pinch of sapidity. Final of decided persistence and elegance.

Possible combinations

It lends itself to pairing with rich and spicy dishes, game, stews, truffles, aged cheeses.
