2008 Fattoria Le Pupille "Saffredi" Maremma Toscana

SKU #1174329 96 points James Suckling

 Love the aromas of blackberries, licorice and lightly toasted oak. Full bodied, with velvety tannins and a rich finish. Ripe tannins with a beautiful polished. Vanilla. Will come together with bottle age. Very serious as always. Such class and complexity.  (8/2011)

94 points Wine Enthusiast

 Vintner Elisabetta Geppetti’s Saffredi is part cult wine and part mainstream blockbuster in that the wine enjoys worldwide fame, but few know it well. This vintage is soft and luscious, with loads of dark chocolate, cherry, blackberry, tobacco and spice. It’s gorgeous down to the last delicious drop. *Cellar Selection*  (5/2012)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2008 Saffredi is 49% Merlot, 47% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Syrah. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2023. Elisabetta Geppetti makes some of the most delicious wines in the Tuscan Maremma. (AG)  (8/2011)

90 points Wine Spectator

 Fresh and lively, if on the grapey, jammy side. Blackberry, black currant and tea flavors are focused by the structure, but not dominated. Vanilla lingers on the finish. For fans of the modern style. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Alicante. (BS)  (10/2011)
