Descended from the illustrious Marchesi Mazzei family, whose ancestors included Ser Lapo Mazzei who wrote the first recorded mention of Chianti wine in 1398, and Filippo, who was asked personally by President Jefferson to introduce vine growing to Virginia, current owner Giovanni’s ambition has always been to make a Sangiovese which rivals the finest wines of Tuscany, pushing the boundaries of Chianti Classico to heights never seen before.

He found the terroir and vines to realise this ambition in the “Clos”, a 6.5ha prized vineyard planted in Il Caggio back in 2008, and with consistently sky high scores like these he is very much succeeding.

Antonio Galloni has boldly proclaimed that Ipsus “very clearly [has] the potential to become one of Italy’s most important wines” and the consistently high scores being awarded are making many sit up and take notice.

What the critics say:

98/100James Suckling

"Super perfumed, gorgeous aromas of blackberries, mushrooms and bark with dried flowers and crushed stones. Pine needles and flowers, too. Full-bodied and linear, very tight and long. So polished and intense. Great length. Superb. From the heart of Castellina in Chianti. Try after after 2025, but already showing incredible clarity and focus. 3,500 bottles made."
