Rich garnet red in color, Fattoria le Pupille "Saffredi" Elisabetta Geppetti opens with a nose of cassis, black plums, violet and wild flowers. The palate is warm, luscious with well integrated tannins and balanced acidity, offering additional aromas of dark fruit, graphite and smoke. Pairs well with rich pasta dishes, roasted rib and grilled game.
"This is another great Saffredi following the perfect 100-point 2012. I tasted it a year ago and thought it was sensational. Even better now. It's so dense and structured yet shows a lively, jazz-like vibe that gives it form and beauty. Needs at least four to five years to soften. Powerful and muscular. Cabernet sauvignon, merlot and petit verdot." - James Suckling
"The 2013 Saffredi wraps around the palate with remarkable depth and intensity. Graphite, smoke, wild flowers, black cherries and plums meld together in a powerful, resonant wine built on intensity. The 2013 has a real sense of gravitas, with dark shades of fruit, expressive balsamic-inflected overtones and plenty of nuance.Range: 92-95" - Vinous
