Siepi 2000 Castello di Fonterutoli
€ 91,90 (in Vat)
|Brand||Castello di Fonterutoli|
This highly regarded Tuscan winery has produced brilliant examples of its proprietary red wine, Siepi, over recent vintages. A blend of equal parts Merlot and Sangiovese, the 2000 Siepi boasts a stunningly opaque purple color as well as gorgeous aromas of blueberries, espresso, and cocoa. Full-bodied, opulently-textured, and extremely rich, with moderate tannin in the long, heady, concentrated finish, this provocative 2000 may be even better than the 1999, which was terrific.
Winespectator / James Suckling (90)
Round and balanced red, with velvety tannins and a ripe berry and dark chocolate aftertaste. Well-done.
