A Wine “Made in Tuscany”

Philip is an extraordinary wine created to honor the Mazzei family’s great ancestor, Philip Mazzei. This wine embodies the “New World” spirit of Tuscan wine-making, best represents the revolutionary character of Philip Mazzei, and expresses the Mazzei’s family desire to pursue life, liberty and happiness.

Philip is a blend of the finest Cabernet Sauvignon grapes carefully selected from the Mazzei’s estates:
  • Castello di Fonterutoli, the historic property in Chianti Classico, producing wines since 1435;
  • Belguardo Estate, acquired in the late 1990’s, in the gentle hills of the Maremma region, overlooking the Mediterranean sea.

Philip is a quintessentially Tuscan wine. It brings together the fragrance and elegance of wines produced in the famous area of Chianti Classico with the opulence and power of wines from the more recently discovered Maremma region. The combination of Cabernet Sauvignon from two different Tuscan estates creates aromatic complexity, depth of color and powerful structure while simultaneously lending minerality, elegance and finesse to the wine.

Philip is complex and exotic with waves of bittersweet chocolate, spices, cinnamon, clove and mint, mingled in a delectable dance of flavors. Rich and opulent yet supple and silky, it is full bodied with polished tannins and a fresh, long finish.
