Castello di Fonterutoli Siepi 2017

Siepi, owned by Mazzei family since 1435, has always been a model farm, still managed today with the same kind of respect. A unique location, a special microclimate, the foresight in the early 1980s to plant Merlot as the ideal grape to complement Sangiovese in a very particular "terroir" produce a wine which is perfectly balanced between elegance, power and complexity.

Colour

Deep ruby red.

Bouquet

A tide of tones of wild fruits, juniper, bois de rose and sandalwood, blond tobacco and even touches of noble vegetable and leather, follow one another non-stop.

Flavour

The taste is equally intense and fiery, full of perfectly modulated tannins and the finish is absolutely responsive and very long.

Pairing

Flavorful, textured dishes, dark sauces, game, blue cheeses.
