A blend of Sangiovese and Merlot in equal parts, this concentrated wine opens with aromas of vanilla, ripe black-skinned fruit and mocha. The supple palate offers coconut, toast and black plum alongside velvety tannins.

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.
Mazzei's 2013 Siepi is terrific. Precise and beautifully focused throughout, the 2013 offers up a compelling mélange of dark cherry/blueberry jam, sweet spices, menthol, licorice and new leather. Unctuous to the core, the 2013 retains striking nuance and poise throughout. The 2013 is an exciting Siepi, but it needs time to unwind.
This is a wonderful follow-up to the superb 2012. Aromas are so intriguing with raspberry, blackberry and light toasted fruits. Some black tea. Full body, and very compacted. Toned and muscular tannins. Racy finish with bright acidity. Fascinating to taste (drink) now but this will be even better in 2019 and onwards.
