• "Ser Lapo" Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG 2016

      “Ser Lapo” Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG 2016

      With this exceptional Chianti Classico Riserva the Mazzei family celebrates their famous ancestor Ser Lapo, in whose writings the name "Chianti" is mentioned for the first time. The upper part of the label shows a faithful reproduction of one of his writings (from the year 1398) with a beautiful calligraphy. "Don't worry about the cost of this wine, although it was expensive: its quality will make up for it."

      Opened with classic aromas of blackberry, blackcurrant and fine violet. Warm and full on the palate, firm core of dark sweet fruits, smooth tannins, rich and with elegant acidity. Spicy and long, with an unmistakable appetising aftertaste of sage and mint. SUPERIORE.DE

      "As charming as the Gran Selezione is, the Ser Lapo is of a pithy and compact construction, precise and demanding, with a stony note and a lot of spice, dominated by the cherry aromas and accompanied by notes of wood right up to the finish. Weinwisser

      "Sparkling, bright ruby red with opaque rim. Compact and red berry nose underlined with light spicy notes, deep plum. Smooth in the attack and course with juicy tannin, balanced body and fruity core, long and salty, exciting, powerful in the final". Falstaff

      "The 2016 Chianti Classico Riserva Ser Lapo is bold, rich and full of energy. Super-ripe red cherry, kirsch, wild flowers, mint, blood orange and spice all run through the 2016. Bright acids keep the flavors bright, with all of the juiciness that is such a Fonterutoli signature very much front and center." Vinous

      "Here's a terrific wine, at a reasonable price point, that gives you an authentic albeit contemporary taste of Tuscany. The 2016 Chianti Classico Riserva Ser Lapo reflects the best qualities of this classic vintage with sharp lines, good freshness and delineated contours. The wine shows a tight core of black fruit surrounded by softer layers of spice and smoke at the edges." Robert Parker

      "Bright aromas of sliced cherries and hints of strawberries with some orange peel. Full body and super fine and ripe tannins. They melt into the wine. Delicate yet energetic. Crisp finish." James Suckling

      "A vibrant yet brooding red, with bracing acidity driving the cherry, currant, iron, tobacco and almond flavors. Complex and intense, this needs a few years to absorb the tannins. Delivers fine presence and length." Wine Spectator

      Chianti Classico DOCG 2015

      The ruby red Chianti Classico from Isole e Olena captivates with its variety loyalty and the consistent style of the house. It presents itself with a fruity full bouquet and a fresh, soft and very balanced taste, in the finish cool and of nice length. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Fine, delicate fragrance, dense and deep, very classic approach in smell. Elegant structure in the mouth, with fine, sweet extract, delicate acidity and multi-layered tannin spice. A balanced, dense and characterful Chianti Classico with style and race. "Attractive sweetness in the back aroma, very clear and full of finesse. Weinwisser

      "Lustrous mid crimson. Subdued, fine and promising nose. Vibrant palate that is still a little closed and with fine, polished tannins. Elegant and long." Jancis Robinson

      "A dark expression of black currant, blackberry, iron and tar flavors renders this red slightly ominous, showing ripeness and harmony. Vibrant, ending with good grip." Wine Spectator

      "The 2015 Chianti Classico is a bright and convincing wine from Barberino Val d'Elsa, one of the main comuni in the greater Chianti Classico appellation. This is a smooth and silky Sangiovese that glides clean over the palate with strength and intensity. Bright cherry, blueberry and herbal accents with wild sage and rosemary characterize the finish. Like many other wines from the 2015 vintage, there is an evident touch of cherry sweetness on the close." Robert Parker

      "Aromas of blueberries, blackberries and burnt orange follow through to a full body with round yet firm tannins. A lovely, pure finish. Shows focus and finesse." James Suckling

      Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG 2013

      Attractive Riserva with classic aromas of sour cherries, sour cherries, dark forest fruits and subtle liquorice. Elegant fruit and delicate structure on the palate, compact, well integrated tannins and impressive long finish. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Flattering notes of forest fruits, pepper and dried flowers; balanced texture, acidity and tannin in harmony, long and extremely polished the final. Vinum

      "In the fragrance initially still with present, wood-aged notes of ripe cherry, chocolate coated raisins and mint. Quite modern, flattering announcement with notes of wild berries, pepper and vanilla. On the palate a gripping Sangiovese with fine, light cherry fruit, firm structure and polished tannin structure, the freshness giving acidity and the tannin cut ensure a balanced texture. The final shows a racy length and is extremely polished." Weinwisser

      "Bright and lightly austere with a dried mushroom and blackberry character throughout. Medium to full body, fine tannins and a fresh finish. Silky texture." James Suckling

      "Rich, boasting black cherry, plum and iron flavors matched to dense tannins. Shows intensity and power, with lively acidity driving the long finish." Wine Spectator

      "The 2013 Chianti Classico Riserva hits all the high notes expected of this historic denomination. The wine is brimming with cherry fruit and luscious darkness with spice, leather and unsweetened chocolate. The blend is 80% Sangiovese and 20% Merlot, and the wine is aged in medium toast barrique (both new and neutral) for 16 months. Like the other successful interpretations from this classic vintage, this expression reveals an impressive sense of balance. If I had to make a 2013 Chianti Classico short list, this wine would be on it." Robert Parker

      Rich colour, clear scent of blackberries and cherries, some nougat, warm and inviting. With its sweet tannin and an excellent alcohol component, the intense, concentrated taste ensnares the senses. Full of elegance the long final. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Juicy is the keyword to this Gran Selezione; it offers animating fruit and sweet density; a wine full of melting and strength; quite hearty and also in the finish again: juicy! Weinwisser

      "Restrained berry aromas, notes of pepper and spices; elegant structure with buxom tannins, the fresh acidity optimally integrated, excellent and promising course with cut and character. Very well done." Vinum

      "The 2016 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Castello Fonterutoli is one of the most expressive wines I have tasted from the estate. Beautifully perfumed, layered and nuanced, the 2016 has so much to offer. Lavender, spice, menthol, ripe red/purplish fruit and rose petal grace this translucent, beautifully detailed Chianti Classico. The 2016 is a jewel of a wine." Vinous

      "Dense and powerful 2016 Chianti Classico with a deep and rich palate of fruit that is tight and compact. Lots of polished tannins to frame the wine. Full-bodied. The spice, bark, and dried-mushroom character highlights the ripe and luscious fruit." James Suckling

      "The Mazzei family was one of the first and most enthusiastic advocates of the Gran Selezione movement. Their 2016 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Castello Fonterutoli is a crowning achievement for this storied Chianti Classico winery. From an iconic vintage, this blend of 92% Sangiovese and 8% Malvasia Nera, shows sharp and delineated lines. Black fruit, plum and cherry intermingle with spice, tobacco and tilled earth. The wine shows zest and energy at its core." Robert Parker

      Fantastic wine from a grandiose year, which embodies the style of the winery as convincingly as its terroir. Fruity scents with elegant spicy aromas characterize the penetrating bouquet. Elegance and fullness in the best contoured taste, which gives all components the necessary freedom. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Brilliant, rich ruby with a fine garnet shimmer. Opened in the nose with notes of anchovies and rosemary, then lots of plum. Juicy in the base and course, builds up nicely, grippy, gripping tannin, salty in the finale." Falstaff

      "Quite dark color for Poggio Antico, bright. Open fragrance, some bread crust, sweet fruit in the background, still very youthful. Rich dense fruit, beautiful clear structure, very balanced and elegant, a typical Brunello from high vineyards, very expressive and melting. One of the best Poggio Antico in a long time, deep, long and multi-faceted." Weinwisser

      "Underbrush, red berry, tilled soil, pressed flower and a balsamic note are some of the aromas offered by this radiant red. The bright palate delivers crunchy wild cherry, baking spice and savory herb alongside assertive but refined tannins. It’s well balanced with fresh acidity." Wine Enthusiast

      "Shows purity to the cherry, raspberry, spice and earth notes, with a well-knit structure supporting the flavors. Smooth, with soft tannins and a long, succulent finish." Wine Spectator

      "A beautifully balanced and subtle Brunello with plum, berry, spice and fresh mahogany character. Full to medium body, fine tannins and a long finish. Very intense and harmonious. This is always a beauty." James Suckling

    • Barolo "Luigi Baudana" DOCG 2013

      Barolo “Luigi Baudana” DOCG 2013

      Fresh, sparkling ruby garnet. Opened with notes of pickled anchovies, then leather and dark forest raspberry. On the palate a lot of dense, substantial tannin, rapidly drags through, fine fruit, in the finale firm pressure. Put it away for a few more years. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Shiny, medium ruby. In mouth and nose it looks strict and quite closed. Only with air does a scent of red berries and floral hints develop. Classic tannin structure on the palate, combined with a slowly intensifying, very pure fruit. "Very vital, much inner tension and minerality. Weinwisser

      "The 2013 Barolo Baudana opens with striking, beguiling aromatics. Deep, pliant and sensual on the palate, the 2013 exudes fruit intensity to the point the tannins are nearly buried. Intense savory and mineral notes provide an underpinning of virile intensity that builds into the super-expressive finish." Antonio Galloni

      "Seems open and forthcoming for the cherry, black currant and floral aromas and flavors, but this red has some punch too. The dense tannins provide support, while tobacco, green olive and mineral notes add depth. Terrific length." Wine Spectator

      “Valmaggiore” Nebbiolo d’Alba DOC 2014 · MAGNUM in OWC

      The grapes for Nebbiolo Valmaggiore come from the depths of the Roero and offer an elegant interplay between the scent of strawberries and currants and a swelling tannin. Fine fruit and mint aromas in the aftertaste. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Brilliant bright, mature colour with a delicate brick red. Delicate, red berry fruit in the fragrance, elegantly and finesse richly arranged, with pinot-like presence, good depth and seductive, sweet top note, floral and multi-layered. Wide, open attack in the mouth with fine-grained mature tannins and inviting play of delicate acidity and gently sublime fruit. The deeply swinging sweetness is paired with the tannins, which are still perceptibly gripping, to form a long, chambolle-like nebbiolo in the finish." Weinwisser

      "The 2014 Nebbiolo d'Alba Valmaggiore is quite pretty. Sweet floral aromatics meld into tobacco, dried cherry, licorice, mint and pine in a finely-knit, sensual wine that captures the essence of this well-known Roero site. Readers who enjoy wines with aromatic development may want to cellar the 2014 for at least a few years. Today, the natural brightness of the vintage and the primary fruit of Nebbiolo are very much front and center." Antonio Galloni

    • "Saffredi" Rosso Toscana IGT 2014

      “Saffredi” Rosso Toscana IGT 2014

      Saffredi was born in 1987 and is named after its location in the municipality of Magliano. This is where the grapes from which this monumental masterpiece is made originate. Only the colour deep dark ruby red, with interesting violet reflections shows a pompous wine of great terroir. In the very expressive bouquet there is a wonderful abundance of floral and earthy aromas, which harmonize beautifully with the scent of red berries. On the palate a concentrated fruit, very soft and deep, structured and endlessly long. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Rich, deep dark ruby with a slight violet hue. Opened with spicy notes of sandalwood and tobacco, followed by rich notes of ripe forest blueberries, fleshy. On the palate dense and compact in approach and course, shows much dark berry fruit, clear and full, fine-meshed tannin, floats long there, long reverberation." Falstaff

      "Dense purple. Intense, radiant, clear bouquet with dark and blueberry fruits (blackcurrant, blueberry), earthy-smoky aromas with a touch of graphite, tobacco and sweet (liquorice) spices and precious woods. There is a lot of Cabernet spice resonating. On the palate it is intense, rich and with a densely interwoven structure, linear and clear, showing great freshness, finesse and presence, with a finely polished tannin structure, persistent intensity and a long aftertaste." Weinwisser

      "Sexy blueberry, spice and black pepper. Mushroom. Full body and ultra-fine tannins. Extremely long and just starting to come around now. Needs a little more time in bottle. Splendid finish. Try in 2019 but already amazing." James Suckling

      "This perfumed red offers aromas of cedar, sage, black currant and oak spice. Vivid acidity drives the complex flavors, with substantial grip on the finish." Wine Spectator

      "Offers good depth and translucence in the mid-weight style of the year. Grilled herb, lavender, plum, menthol and sage are some of the many nuances that are woven together in this distinctly mid-weight Saffredi. Although a touch slender, as so many wines are in this vintage, the 2014 Saffredi has quite a bit of staying power and overall persistence. As is so often the case with wines from cooler years, time in the glass does wonders here." Antonio Galloni

      Only 4,000 bottles of Gran Selezione, the highest quality level in Chianti Classico, are produced in 2013 by Capannelle, which is known among wine lovers for its excellent wines. A guarantor for enjoyment at the highest level. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Delicate, fine fruit, very balanced and persistent, with a racy structure. Dense, rich and pithy, very good freshness, remains very firm on the palate, with excellent depth." Weinwisser

      "Powerful, sparkling ruby with a slight garnet shimmer. Intense nose, with notes of liquorice and tobacco, orange peel, plums and raspberry. Velvety and full at the same time on the palate, shows much ripened berry fruit, especially raspberry, opens with very smooth and dense tannin, very long reverberation". Falstaff

      "Pressed iris, red-skinned berry, underbrush and a whiff of rosemary lead the nose on this 100% Sangiovese. The supple, juicy palate delivers black cherry, white pepper, leather and star anise alongside velvety, polished tannins. It's already accessible but will also age well for the next several years or more." Wine Enthusiast

    • Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2010

      Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2010

      Complex scent of blackberries and spice notes, with hints of vegetabile. Dense taste with highly elegant tannins and a never-ending reverberation. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Bright color for Valdicava. Sweet, delicate and fine in fragrance, very restrained fruit, harmonious and delicate, not as opulent as expected. Soft, ripe fruit in the mouth with a nutty note of fine wood aging, good, firm type. Completely rounded and full-bodied with a fine body and a well-fanned tannin presence."Weinwisser

      "The gamy 2010 Brunello di Montalcino does a great job of presenting intensity and elegance all in the same delicious package. That's not easy to do and the excellent 2010 fruit plays a big role in achieving this goal. The wine offers a long succession of aromas that span from ripe fruit, to smoked meat, to grilled herb and soft spice. Delicate tones of licorice, cola and anise seed add life and energy. The list goes on. The wine's mouthfeel is best characterized by softness and structure, a two-fold approach that gives high hopes for the long aging potential of this wine. Valdicava's Brunello will appeal to those who love earthy and leathery notes in their Brunello."Robert Parker

      "The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino is one of the very best wines I have tasted here in recent years. Dark red cherries, mint, game, smoke, tobacco and licorice are all deeply expressive in a mid-weight, very classic feeling Brunello long on class and personality. Big yet silky tannins frame the dramatic, intense finish."Antonio Galloni

      "Effusive aromas of incense, green olive, sweet strawberry and cherry, licorice and leather mark this structured version. The tannins are on the beefy side, but this finishes long, with enough fruit and spice for balance."Wine Spectator

      "Absolutely stunning aromas of nectarine, orange peel, sweet black cherry, plums and flowers. Licorice and mushroom It's full body, with layers of ultra-fine tannins and hints of tangy acidity. Such beautiful length and beauty to this wine. It's powerful and structured yet shows a gorgeous finesse and length. Truly wondrous. So long and refined. The texture is phenomenal."James Suckling

    The WeinWisser was founded in 1992 by Swiss wine pope René Gabriel and gastronomic critic Wolfram Meister as the Swiss counterpart to Parker's Wein-Advocate. Like the Wine-Advocate, the "independent newsletter for all those who want to know more about wine" consists only of single DIN A4 sheets, which are stapled together with a bracket. The WeinWisser is only distributed by subscription.

    WeinWisser is one of the leading German-language wine and tasting magazines for wine professionals and ambitious wine lovers. For more than 25 years WEINWISSER has stood for independent and competent wine criticism. The 12-strong team of WeinWisser experts, led by editor-in-chief and wine critic Giuseppe Lauria (formerly part of the Gault Millau tasting team), tastes, describes and systematically evaluates over 4,000 top-quality wines from all over the world every year, providing a unique shopping and orientation aid for wine professionals, passionate and discerning wine lovers.

    WeinWisser informs about current wine trends, presents the best and most exciting wines and wineries in the world as well as interesting newcomers and wine personalities. New sections you will find in this magazine are: Wine Personality of the Month, Wine of the Month and Pearls of the Month, in which international top decision-makers, top wines and top sparkling wines are portrayed exclusively and in detail on a regular basis.

    Since 2008 the Weinwisser belongs to the German publishing house Konradin Selection. Since then, well-known German-language wine journalists have been evaluating the wines, while René Gabriel has remained a Bordeaux specialist. The WeinWisser scores in the 20-point system. SUPERIORE.DE
