The 2002 Siepi, 100% Merlot, is surprisingly full and sweet for a wine of this vintage, but a rain-free period in mid-September, together with a careful selection of the grapes, clearly did the trick. Round, ripe, and ample with plenty of plum and raspberry fruit, vanilla, and oak spices, the wine only lacks the extra fullness that warm vintages supply. It will undoubtedly drink well for another decade. In general, the wines seem as much an expression of the Gironde as of central Tuscany, but they are clearly the result of a scrupulous viticulture and professional winemaking. They will clearly appeal to those looking more for these qualities than for expression of territory and traditions. So be it. Wine Advocate.April, 2006
