Siepi Igt Rosso Toscana Mazzei 2008
External Reviews for Siepi Igt Rosso Toscana Mazzei
Siepi 2003/ Fragrant, floral Sangiovese and plush Merlot are combined in equal parts to produce one of Italy's most appealing wines with rich extraction an d gorgeous, long-lasting fruit flavors. This rich and modern blend never lets the 2003 heat get the upper hand.
Siepi 2005/ From Mazzei's historic estate in Chianti Classico, this 50/50 blend of sangiovese and merlot grows in marl and sandstone soils. The wine's tannins feel ironclad when first poured, then high-toned red berries emerge with air, enriched by notes of sandalwood and spice. Cellar this for up to a decade, or decant a bottle for braised pork shoulder.
Siepi 2006 - 92 Points, Wine Advocate/ The 2006 Siepi is particularly beautiful in this vintage. The wine reveals tons of clarity, depth and precision in its violets, blackberries, minerals and French oak, with remarkable balance in between the fruit, acid and tannins. This full-bodied, vibrant Siepi could use a few years in bottle, but the wine’s impeccable balance means it can be enjoyed sooner than that, especially if the bottle is opened well in advance. This is a terrific effort from proprietor Filippo Mazzei, consulting oenologist Carlo Ferrini and their team. Siepi is Sangiovese and Merlot that spent 18 months in French oak.
Siepi 2005 - 92 Points, Wine Spectator/ Shows fantastic aromas of crushed raspberry and flowers, with an olive undertone. Full-bodied, with superrefined, silky tannins and a long, long finish. Caressing and beautiful .
"Siepi" Toscana 2008 - 93 points, Wine Enthusiast / Siepi is a gorgeous 50-50 blend of Sangiovese and Merlot that delivers intense aromas of ripe black fruit, rum cake, leather, moist tobacco and Indian spice. It lasts long on the palate thanks to its fine, silky texture.
Siepi 2006 - 95 Points, Wine Spectator/ Intense aromas of blackberry, black licorice and dried flowers. Full-bodied, with fine, silky tannins and a long, rich finish. Polished and well-made. One of the best ever from this producer.
Siepi - Multi-Vintage Reviews/ Intense aromas of blackberries, black licorice and dried flowers. Full-bodied, with silky and fine tannins and a long, rich finish. Polished and well made. One of the best ever from here.
