Tasting Notes

  • WA

    Wine Advocate,
    Score: 98

    The 2016 Saffredi brings full-throttled intensity in a very well-balanced wine. The blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (60%), Merlot (30%) and Petit Verdot (10%) spends 18 months in mostly new oak. This vintage is compact, firm and precise, with lovely floral aromas on the bouquet in front of blackberry and plum. Long oak toasting gives the wine tasty notes of spice and cinnamon and rounds the bouquet off nicely. The mouthfeel is soft and velvety. This is a complex, integrated and absolutely beautiful wine.

Producer

Fattoria Le Pupille

Fattoria le Pupille has produced tiny amounts of wine since the 1970's where it had just two hectares of sangiovese. In 1978 Morellino di Scansano DOC was created and that year the first harvest of this wine was made at Le Pupille.Young Elisabetta Geppetti decided in the early 1980's to become responsible for these vines and to make exceptional wine. Slowly the estate expanded with more varieties whilst maintaining excellent quality and consistency across the range.In 2006, Elisabetta Geppetti was awarded the title "winemaker of the Year" by german magazines Der Feinschmecker and Wein Gourmet; she was the first woman to receive this award.

Region

Tuscany

Arguably the most celebrated of all Italian regions for its sun, delicious food and rich wines. Chianti lies at the heart of this centrally located, picturesque and expansive area. Tuscany is also home to Chianti's more powerful cousin, Brunello di Montalcino, illustrious Super Tuscanblends and spicy, exuberant whites.
