Tasting Notes

The 2012 Saffredi captures all the potential I sensed last year. Fresh, vibrant and beautifully delineated in the glass, the 2012 speaks to balance above all else. All the elements meld together effortlessly. The flavors are bold, dark and incisive, while attractive floral and spice notes add an attractive upper register. Still very primary, the 2012 naturally needs time in bottle to fully come together. A final black of red-fleshed stone fruits leaves a positive impression. The 2012 spent 22 months in French oak, 70% new. (94+ Points)

The excellent 2012 Saffredi is one of the best wines I have tasted from Fattoria le Pupille. This is an exuberant and expressive blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and a smaller part Petit Verdot from the gorgeous hills of Maremma near Grosseto, Tuscany. The wine is rich and penetrating with a stunning sense of balance and inner poise. Dark cherry, blackberry, spice, leather, tobacco and grilled herb flow freely from the bouquet. The wine is softly textured with full body appeal. This fabulous Saffredi should age forward ten years or more. The Cabernet component of the wine shows perfect ripeness.

A phenomenal Saffredi with so much structure and length. It’s full-bodied yet remaines agile and lively. Aromas and flavors of currants, mint and wet earth. Full-bodied, chewy and powerful. A blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot and petit verdot. This has a special label celebrating the 25th anniversary of the production of this wine. It's the greatest Saffredi ever, cementing its reputation as the Lafite of Tuscany. This needs at least five years in bottle but it’s entrancing to drink now. A must-buy for Super Tuscan lovers.
