Brimming with gorgeous intensity and richness, the 2011 Siepi is a hugely hedonistic and fruit-forward expression. The blend is Sangiovese and Merlot, and although you can taste some of the overt ripeness and power of the French grape, the Sangiovese side kicks in with pretty freshness and elegance. Dark cherry, tobacco and chocolate are delivered in thick waves over the palate. This Siepi is ready to drink now, or you can cellar it.
Winespectator / James Suckling (92)
A fresh, oaky style, offering a veneer of resin, vanilla, clove and smoke to the black cherry, plum and tar notes. Concentrated and extracted, but not for everyone.
