Mazzei’s flagship wine Siepi celebrated its 25th anniversary with its 2017 vintage in Hong Kong with its importer Watson’s Wine. Made with 50% Merlot and Sangiovese, the wine is among the first batch of Italian wines who helped popularize ‘Super Tuscan’ concept. Known for its opulent and powerful style, in the past few years the winery has started to fine-tune its style for more elegance and finesse, says its Asia Pacific export manager Jacopo Pandolfini. The recent vintages of 2016 and 2017 compared with earlier release of 2012 showed more fruitiness and appear more approachable upon release.
