Mazzei Castello di Fonterutoli 'Siepi' Toscana IGT 2015, Tuscany, Italy
PRESS: James Suckling - 98 points. "Beautiful aromas of violets, berries and currants. Dried flowers, too. Full body, such intense fruit and acidity. Vivid and complex. Wild raspberry. Tight and dense. A triumph for Siepi. Half sangivoese and merlot. Better in 2022 but hard to not drink now."
