    This Wine Is Rated:


    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. Sangiovese and Merlot. Best after 2011. 2,500 cases made. –JS

    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. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2024.

    Dark red with a paler rim. Musky aromas of earth, underbrush and tobacco, with livelier redcurrant and blueberry aromas emerging with air. The densely textured palate shows more red fruits than black, with complicating hints of cigar box and balsamic vinegar. The wine's seamless tannins contribute to a surprisingly forward impression considering its youth, but this is a very impressive mouthful that offers the advantage of early accessibility.
