Fattoria le Pupille Saffredi 2012


We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

Impenetrable ruby red, a beautiful density in the glass. The scents go from red fruits, red currant, blackberries and spices such as cloves, cinnamon and chocolate. In the palate the wine is well-rounded and velvety, engaging all senses with majestic balance. The long persistence allows to fully enjoy the aromatic complexity, in which the spiciness is prevalent. Best combined with: important plates, such as red meats and game. It is also perfect with dark chocolate and in a contemplating environment, such as whilst enjoying a cigar.

Wine AdvocateThe 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.

Wine EnthusiastCellar Selection. Structured and elegant, this blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 10% Petit Verdot offers aromas of blackberry, red currant, blue flowers, clove and oak. The concentrate palate doles out black cherry, plum, sage, anise and tobacco alongside a backbone of fine-grained tannins. Drink 2016-2022.
