“Excellence of the historical cellars Mazzei, Hedges of Fonterutoli is a monumental red of great value, flag in Italy and in the world of Tuscan wine tradition. Born near Castellina Chianti, along an area around an ancient Florentine town already known in Etruscan times and owes its name to the vineyard-facing Val d'Elsa, the historic cradle of Sangiovese and Merlot. Nectar exclusive and of great character, embodies the history of tradition and rituals of Mazzei cellars, one representing prestigious label, long time local identity and pride. Hedges of Fonterutoli is a pleasant sensory experience that comes from a winemaking process requiring separate fermentations for Merlot and Sangiovese. This phase follows a complex maturation of about half a year in French oak barrels, which gives the Siepi its aromatic complexity. Elegant, rich and intense, is a wine that meets the favor of the most sophisticated palates and is embellished with a long and established which makes it indispensable in the exquisitely finest convivial appointments. Preserved in a timely manner, it is a nectar that can age in the bottle for more than twenty years.”

“This single vineyard wine, from one the best vineyards on the property, shows an outstanding combination of intensity and elegance, displaying ripe black berry fruit, dark chocolate, mocha and spice notes. It is complex in structure with supple tannins, great concentration and a very long finish.”

“I had it with fish, but I didn't like the fish, and therefore the wine didn't taste right. A special red wine for someone just as special .
Nice and pretty colour. It has aromas that reminded me of white roses. Its flavour reminds me of wild berries.”
“I bought it because a friend recommended me to.
As nearly all of them this one shows also a cherry colour. This Castello Di Fonterutoli Mazzei Siepi Double Magnum had good scents of red fruits. Flashy flavours of red fruits.”
“A red to drink with that special person.
This red wine is cherry with brown edges. Strong smell of berries. It had a correct astringency.
This Castello Di Fonterutoli Mazzei Siepi was a very good pairing for the desserts.”
