Fonterutoli Rosso di Toscana Siepi Italy 2007
"Siepi is a gorgeous super Tuscan blend of Sangiovese and Merlot that exhibits richness, intensity and purity. This is a luscious and opulent expression with deep aromas of cherry, blackberry, chocolate, espresso bean and spice. The finish is super long and delicious...95" WE 12/10 "Soft and attractive, with notes of dried blueberry and toasty oak. Very floral. Full and velvety-textured, with a delicious finish. An excellent red. Sangiovese and Merlot. Best after 2010...94" WS 10/10 "The 2007 Siepi is a Sangiovese/Merlot blend that spent roughly 18 months in French oak prior to being bottled. Dark ripe fruit, chocolate, new leather and scorched earth come together beautifully in this dark, weighty Siepi. Once again, I am struck by the purity and definition of the fruit, a hallmark of the best 2007s. The density and richness follows through with authority to the engaging, finessed finish. This is one of the finest Siepis I have ever tasted. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2027...94" WA 10/10 With one exception, I was blown away by the wines I tasted from Fonterutoli, the Mazzei family’s historic Tuscan property. Proprietor Filippo Mazzei and his team led by consulting oenologist Carlo Ferrini have done a terrific job with most of these wines.
