|Brand||Castello di Fonterutoli|
Celebrating its 25th anniversary in a special commemorative bottle, the 2017 Siepi is a beautifully rich ensemble of Sangiovese and Merlot. The hot and dry vintage has pushed both varieties to extra ripeness and darkness—the hallmarks of the vintage. The bouquet is articulate and intense with black fruit, dried blackberry, cherry, spice, earth and toasted almond. There is abundant richness on the nose, but the palate is actually shorter and more streamlined than expected. Siepi is an exceptional vineyard site perched on its own little plateau that is drenched in golden sunlight.
Winespectator / James Suckling (95)
A dense and rich red with lots of fruit and seamless tannins. Full and structured with loads of flesh. But this is fresh at the same time. A blend of 50% merlot and 50% sangiovese.
