The 2013 Siepi from Mazzei is a very special Super-Tuscan from an excellent vintage. Scored at 95+ points in the Wine Advocate, this is up there with the some global fine wine icons while remaining very well priced for the quality.
An equal blend of Sangiovese for structure and acidity, with Merlot for richness and opulence, Siepi is emerging as one of the best Super-Tuscan buys. Suckling scored the 2012 at 98 points and while yet to rate the 2013, 95+ points from Monica Larner gives clear indication of just how good this vintage is.
Interestingly, Larner's score places it very close to some of the world’s most famous Tuscan’s in 2013, including Sassicaia (95-97 points), Masseto (95-97 points) and Ornellaia (96 points). At such a reasonable price it therefore represents fantastic relative value and so looks to be a very shrewd addition to the cellar.

Average critic rating : 95.0 points
The 2013 Siepi is a knockout wine that hits all the sense with just the right level of complexity. The wine is soft, brooding, velvety and long in persistency. It is made with equal parts Merlot and Sangiovese and both grapes bring their best assets to the blend. Sangiovese shows an upfront personality with territory-driven tones of small berry and spice. This grape also offers beautifully fresh acidity. The Merlot component plays a strong background role and adds softness, lushness and richness. This is a new wine that needs a few more years of bottle aging. Otherwise it can be aged or consumed in the near-term. (Oct 2015), www.erobertparker.com, Drink 2017-2030
