Geppetti has produced another gem in her 2006 Saffredi, a French-oak aged blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Alicante. This textured, explosive wine boasts considerable depth and richness in its dark fruit, flowers, minerals and graphite. The wine remains extremely primary and in need of considerable bottle age in order to offer its best drinking but it is unquestionably formidable. The style combines elements of power and elegance, achieving a level rarely seen in these parts. Simply put, this is stunning juice. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2026. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Surprisingly good. Tannic and very Italian.

A great bottle; quite dark but by no means opaque super-tuscan; served quite cold but really opened up in the glass, shedding the light notes of petrol to reveal a startlingly brilliant fresh blackcurrent skins with notes of tobacco, freshly turned soil, and hints of thyme and stocks. Nicely tannic with surprisingly but beautifully present acidity. Stunning with fresh pasta and goats cheese! Tempted to get a case so I can see how it develops over the next ten years. Could go either way into secondary; full marks and top of the class or the tired high-school drop-out in a second rate early John Travolta movie ...
