2000 Fattoria Le Pupille "Saffredi" Maremma Toscana
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2000 is another wow wine. Sensual and elegant through and through, the 2000 emerges from the glass with tons of ripe dark fruit, crushed flowers, raspberries, earthiness, worn-in leather and licorice. It possesses marvelous depth and intensity in its fruit, but with a level of complexity and nuance in the bouquet that completes the wine in magnificent style. The round, enveloping finish makes it impossible to resist a second taste. (AG)
94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, Jul/Aug 03: "(a blend of 50% cabernet sauvignon, 35% merlot and 15% grenache) Very dark ruby, almost black. Utterly seductive aromas of blackberry, mint, eucalyptus and incense. Offers a wonderful creamy richness of cassis-like flavor on the palate, with layers of dark berry fruit expressed with clarity and verve. Silky tannins frame the sweet, lingering finish. This property continues to be a pacesetter in the Scansano area for its elegantly fashioned wines."
