Luminous ruby color. Forest berries, spices, leather, moist earth and dried plum, layered in the aroma. Soft, round taste, well-balanced acidity and clean and persistent aftertaste. Very pleasing, and ready to drink.
Pair with flavorful first-course dishes, such as pasta, polenta, risotto, or with cheese and red meats.
“Delicate floral nose with an earthy, slightly peaty background. Natural but very precise palate, with fine tannins and a concentrated, bone-dry finish which needs a little time to open up. ”

A “classic” of our production, this Brunello di Montalcino is obtained with clones of Sangiovese selected after 20 years of research on this unique grape and is aged in French oak barrels of 350 lt as well as in 60-120 hl Slavonian barrels. The most aristocratic combination of Montalcino tradition with winemaking modernity.
This wine is particularly suited to accompany red meat, game and aged cheeses. Long aging potential.
Dark cherries, flowers, tobacco and licorice come to life in a surprisingly powerful Chianti from Selvapiana.
Blend: 55% Merlot, 35% Syrah, 10% Sangiovese
WA 95 (8/2013): The 2010 Siepi is a monumental wine with towering intensity and opulent aromas of spice, leather and chocolate covered cherry. The texture of this hearty 50-50 blend of Sangiovese and Merlot is infinitely soft and supple. There are many big-boned wines from Italy that can compare to Siepi, but ultimately this wine is distinguished by its own, unique personality. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2030.
JS 94 (2/2014): Very ripe wine with dried-berry and dark-chocolate character. Full body, full, ripe tannins and a juicy finish. It goes on for minutes. Better in 2016.
AG 94 (9/2014): The 2010 Siepi hasn’t budged much since last year. Freshly cut flowers, dark red stone fruits, tobacco, leather and wild flowers form an attractive fabric in a relatively weightless, silky Siepi.
The Wine Advocate
“Fully saturated ruby-purple. Sexy aromas of ripe dark plum, Asian spices, licorice and cocoa powder, with a floral quality adding lift and freshness. At once suave and penetrating, with very good energy and definition to the flavors of sweet red cherry, dark plum, mocha and fresh herbs. In a distinctly ripe style, but with a vibrant, long finish thanks to harmonious acidity. The sweet, broad tannins show a distinct chocolatey ripeness.”
