Comprised of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 10% Petit Verdot, this is proprietress Elisabetta Geppetti’s prime single vineyard expression, coming into its 30th year since planting. “The 2015 Saffredi is a total head-turner. Bold and explosive, the 2015 captures all the magic that Le Pupille is capable of. Crème de cassis, lavender, mint, licorice and truffle are some of the notes that give the 2015 is decidedly exotic, racy personality. Even with all of its abundant richness, the 2015 possesses terrific supporting structure and phenomenal balance. In a word: magnificent!” - Vinous

Wine Advocate

The 2015 Saffredi is a sultry and velvety wine from the Tuscan Coast. The blend is 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 10% Petit Verdot that sees 18 months in new and neutral oak. The textural richness is of the highest caliber, and the bouquet produces a long succession of black fruit, exotic spice and savory tobacco flavors. There's a touch of mocha chocolate and toasted espresso bean as well. The wine delivers great length and power. It promises not only to age but to improve as it spends more years in the cellar. Some 30,000 bottles are made.

Another wow. This is truly sensational with a depth of fruit and incredible depth and polish. Full, silky tannins and a long and flavorful finish. Exciting barrel sample.
