2013 Castello di Fonterutoli Siepi Toscana 750ml
95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Outer quote mark 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.

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.
