      “Il Caggio IPSUS” Chianti Classico Gran Selezione DOCG 2015 · 3 Bottles in OWC

      With the first vintage of this single vineyard Sangiovese, the Mazzei family has no less objective than to make the best wine of the Chianti Classico appellation. Seven different Sangiovese clones, four of them from our own 50 years of research, form the basis for a Gran Selezione, which is produced at an altitude of up to 350 metres in the single vineyard Il Caggio not far from Castellina (and only in the best vintages).

      Mazzei has already come close to this high standard with its debut vintage. The just 3,000 bottles of the very good 2015 vintage point the way to Sangiovese Olympus: sparkling ruby red, opulent bouquet of cherry, dried fruit, herbs and violets. On the palate again small red berries, flanked by a present but very elegant tannin, precise and straightforward. In the final polished and very long, perfectly proportioned and harmonious. Leaves a beautiful and unique impression, it expands the scale of what one could expect from a Gran Selezione until today. SUPERIORE.DE

      "The 2015 Ipsus, 100% Sangiovese, is compelling, not to mention a fabulous debut. A very traditional fermentation of three weeks on the skins, with post-fermentation maceration, and then aging in cask yields a decidedly old-school inspired wine with tons of structure, aromatic intensity and depth. Rose petal, mint, blood orange and sweet tobacco give the 2015 striking layers of nuance. This is such a gorgeous and inviting wine, and a tremendous first effort." Vinous

      "This is a new project (and a second, independent brand) headed by the Mazzei family of Castello di Fonterutoli. The Caggio 2015 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Ipsus strives for Sangiovese purity and a sense of place. It achieves both, thanks to careful work in identifying a cool growing site for the Tuscan variety and a classic or traditional approach to winemaking with carefully managed maceration and aging in oak tonneaux. The results are soulful and profound with wild blueberry or raspberry, forest floor, blue flower and clove-flavored orange peel. The tannins are supple and smooth, yet there is enough structure and linearity to carry the wine forward in time. This was a warm and sunny vintage, and I can't imagine a better growing season from which to create an inaugural wine such as this. Ipsus is a new addition to a very limited group of vinous icons from Tuscany." Robert Parker

      "This is a fantastic new Chianti Classico from the Mazzei family, from a small estate near Castellina in Chianti. Shows so many perfumes of cherries, strawberries, violets, spices and dried oranges that follow through to a full yet tight and very agile palate. Supple. Intense yet very fine tannins. Extremely long and polished." James Suckling

      “Oreno” Rosso Toscana IGT 2018 · BALTHAZAR 12 Liters in OWC

      Deep dark ruby purple. In the nose cassis, blackcurrants and a strong herbal spice with a good dose of pipe tobacco, tar and crushed rubble. On the palate, dark berries, chocolate and a cornucopia of herbs define the full body. This wine monument has precisely integrated tannins, an enormous silkiness and an almost endless finish. SUPERIORE.DE

      "This is a dark, concentrated and full-bodied expression that exudes black fruit and blackberry with spicy tobacco and savory spice. Despite the Bordeaux blend in its DNA, the wine is fully Tuscan in character and spirit, with the softness and fullness that comes from fruit cultivated under the golden sunshine of Central Italy." Robert Parker

      "Currant, flower and orange-blossom aromas follow through to a full body with fine, creamy tannins and a long, persistent finish. Shows finesse and precision. Cherry and orange-peel notes at the end. The flavors go on and on. Better after 2022." James Suckling

      “Siepi” Rosso Toscana IGT 2015 · BALTHAZAR 12 Liters in OWC

      Its original vineyard of the same name has long been regarded as one of the best sites in the Castellina zone. From equal parts of Merlot and Sangiovese comes this excellent, very dense wine with ripe fruit aromas and sweet vanilla hints. SUPERIORE.DE

      "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." James Suckling

      "This is a delightful 50-50 blend of Sangiovese and Merlot with a bold and contemporary personality. The 2015 Siepi is a consistent product year in and year out. The wine faithfully delivers a New World interpretation with an all-Tuscan soul. You get Italy-centric aromas of Mediterranean herb and rosemary backed by plump black cherry, sweet tobacco, clove and cinnamon. The oak influences are evident vis-à-vis the wine's structure and power. The mouthfeel is layered and textured. It is ready to drink now, but the bottle could also be put aside for the next 10 years. The Siepi vineyard is located on a well-exposed plateau some 260 meters above sea level." Robert Parker

      "This has depth and complexity, featuring black cherry, plum, leather, spice and mineral flavors. The dense texture exudes refined tannins as this stays fresh through the long, saturated finish. Fruit, spice and tobacco elements linger." Wine Spectator

    • "Siepi" Rosso Toscana IGT 2016 <br>BALTHAZAR 12 Liters in OWC

      “Siepi” Rosso Toscana IGT 2016 · BALTHAZAR 12 Liters in OWC

      Sparkling, intense ruby violet. In the nose with notes of ripe elderberries and plums, underlaid with fine sandalwood. Juicy and full-bodied in the base and course, shows an enormously opulent and crunchy berry fruit, grippy, fine-meshed tannin, very long aftertaste, in the finale decent of tobacco, straightforward and clear. Dream vintage! SUPERIORE.DE

      "Sparkling, rich ruby with a violet core. Compact nose with rich notes of ripe blackberries and blueberries, plus plenty of cinnamon and cloves, almost Christmassy. Juicy, much clear, ripe berry fruit, well integrated tannin with beautiful drive, in the aftertaste still subtle wood notes noticeable." Falstaff

      "The 2016 Siepi, the estate's Sangiovese/Merlot blend, is a big, rich wine. In 2016, the Merlot is especially prominent. Black cherry jam, torrefaction, spice, leather, menthol and new French oak are all pushed forward. Time in the glass brings out a good bit of aromatic freshness to balance things out. Readers should expect a potent, seriously concentrated wine. Vinous"

      "A blend of Merlot and Sangiovese in equal parts, the 2016 Siepi is a luscious and soft wine that oozes forth with dark berry intensity. The fruit is compact and dense. This wine performs beautifully in terms of aromas, but the mouthfeel is especially fine-tuned and elegant in this classic vintage. Dark fruit is followed by spice, tar, rose bud and sharp mineral nuances that recall the gravel and limestone-rich soils of Chianti Classico. This is perhaps the best vintage of Siepi I have tasted thus far." Robert Parker

      "What a beautiful nose of elderberries, freshly picked blackcurrants, citrus, herbs, licorice and crushed stones, amidst a backdrop of coffee beans, cedar and vanilla. Full-bodied and very subtle and refined with tightly wound tannins and an impressive balance of fruit and acidity. Long, grainy and elegant on the finish. A masterpiece." James Suckling
