Last Year's Vintage (2013)
James Suckling 91 Points
Refined and silky with juicy fruit. Plenty of ripe plum and berry character. Hints of almond and nut undertones. Full body, soft tannins and a flavorful finish. Excellent value. Real Tuscan wine at a wonderful price.

2012 Vintage
James Suckling 92 Points
Tightly wound, chewy cherry skins, densely spiced, medium-bodied but packed with complexity. Good value. Will improve with two years in the bottle. 70% sangiovese, 30% merlot.

2010 Vintage
Wine Spectator 92 Points
Black cherry and currant flavors are accented by violet notes in this structured, muscular red. This shows density and grip, as the spice- and mineral-accented finish lingers. Best from 2014 through 2020.

Tasting Notes
Deep, inky purple with intense aromas of dark fruits and cocoa. On the palate the wine is soft and smooth on the palate, with flavors of wild blackberries and raspberries; well balanced, with great depth and a long finish

The Winery
The history of the Mazzei family is closely woven into Tuscany’s winemaking history, as well as the region’s rich political and cultural past. Ser Lapo Mazzei (1350-1412) a winemaker from Carmignano is considered father of the Chianti name. The extraordinary Fonterutoli estate in Chianti has been owned by the Mazzei family since 1435 and has passed down through 24 generations.

The Mazzei family’s winemaking influence has extended far beyond the realm of Tuscany. In 1774, Filippo Mazzei (1730-1816) was asked by his friend Thomas Jefferson to plant a vineyard at the Jefferson estate in Monticello, Virginia. Jefferson was inspired not only by Filippo’s (Philip’s) viticultural knowledge but also by his ideas regarding equality. The great doctrine “All men are created equal” which was incorporated into the Declaration of Independence by Jefferson, was paraphrased from the writing of Philip Mazzei. Philip’s highly significant contributions to Italian American culture and philosophy were commemorated on a U.S. postage stamp entitled “Patriot Remembered”.

Philip is an extraordinary wine created to both honor the great ancestor Philip Mazzei - a passionate grape grower, forward thinker and citizen of the world – and highlight the Mazzei family’s special connection to the United States. Philip is blend of the finest Cabernet Sauvignon grapes selected from all the Mazzei’s Tuscan estates.
