As the years passed and that cabernet never saw the light of day, some wondered if the underground hadn’t been duped, or that perhaps, that the project had simply been abandoned. Then 6 six years ago, we learned that Francesco Mazzei had engaged Carlo Ferrini challenging the Winemaker of the Year, to assemble a mystery Cabernet and that Ferrini was purportedly stunned by the “quality of the material” Now 16 years later is still remains the most talked about Super Tuscan in all of Italian underground!
About the wine
The Mazzei family's history is entrenched in the winemaking of Tuscany's past and present. Dating back as far as the 13th century, Lap Mazzei is referred to as the father of Chianti wine.
in 1774, Filippo Mazzei planted a vineyard for Thomas Jefferson, in Virginia. Filippo's connection to Jefferson has a place in American history, he influenced the "All men are created equal" doctrine that was included in the Declaration of Independence, and was commemorated on a US stamp, "Patriot Remembered".
This wine was created to honour Philip (Filippo), and is a blend of only the finest Cabernet Sauvignon from the Mazzei's properties in Chianti Classico and Maremma.
Deep, dark purple color. The nose offers intriguing black cherry, balsamic herbs, coffee and lightly toasted oak.
On the palate, this wine shows harmonious flavors of dark fruit, dried flowers, chocolate and vanilla. An exotic, full-bodied wine with complex character and polished tannins.

"I think this might be the first time I’ve given a red 5 stars, this wine is just too good to harbour doubts. Beautiful dark fruit walk down your tongue hand in hand with acid and tannin, it’s a masterpiece for a wine so young! I’m excited to cellar this and try one a year and report back." - Jay M.
"Wonderful nose where powerful red berries supported by hints of vanilla, liquorice. Well structured taste, Mazzei signature acidity with tannins and elegant aftertaste." - Denis N.

"A dark-fruited red that shows mulberries, blackberries, creme de cassis, vanilla and dark chocolate with a touch of fresh herbs and cedar. Full body, round yet structured tannins and a chewy finish. Drink in 2020”
