Fattoria Le Pupille (Elisabetta Geppetti) Saffredi Maremma Toscana Super Tuscan Blend 2012

$134.99

100 Points, James Suckling: "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."

Great structure, full bodied, earthy, dark juicy berry, a little peppery.

I finally had my first taste of this small, often lauded, producer of super Tuscan wines. I liked it, on the darker side it reminded me in style of Le Macchiole.

Fantastic super Tuscan. Full bodied, complex and lengthy on the palate. Mushroom, herbs, touch of cocoa, violets. An exceptional and unique wine!

Intense fruit aroma with a hint of oak. It gains weight as we drink. It is a bit sour and has a light touch of bitter after taste on the pallet. Flavour profile should develop further as it ages.
