Mazzei Siepi 2013 Castello di Fonterutoli 75cl / 14%
A bottle of Siepi 2013, produced in Tuscany by Marchesi Mazzei at Castello di Fonterutoli. This is a 50% Sangiovese and 50% Merlot blend grown in the 6 hectare Siepi vineyard, situated at an altitude of 260 metres. 30,000 bottles produced.
Siepi was described by the Italian wine guide, the Gambero Rosso, as 'one of the 50 wines that changed the style of Italian wine.'
'The 2013 Siepi is a knockout wine that hits all the senses with just the right level of complexity. The wine is soft, brooding, velvety and long in persistency. It is made with equal parts Merlot and Sangiovese and both grapes bring their best assets to the blend. Sangiovese shows an upfront personality with territory-driven tones of small berry and spice. This grape also offers beautifully fresh acidity. The Merlot component plays a strong background role and adds softness, lushness and richness. This is a new wine that needs a few more years of bottle aging. Otherwise it can be aged or consumed in the near-term. 95/100' Monica Larner, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 2015
