AWARDS & ACCOLADES
Wow, there is a very impressive freshness here that defies the heat of this vintage. The 2017 Saffredi doesn’t look like 2017 at all. Now celebrating its 30th birthday, Saffredi is 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, and 10% Petit Verdot. Thanks to the vineyard’s proximity to the sea, leaving leaves on the vines and the strong daytime changes in the area, the fruit was able to ripen in a balanced way despite the hot and dry summer. Fattoria le Pupille’s team knew they would have to be ready to harvest early and lose some of their yields, and they did. In the end, production was down by 25%, but the result is a fresh, thick and beautiful red wine made with ripe fruit and dark concentration. This is a great effort from Fattoria le Pupille.
Superb blackberries, dark chocolate, spices and lightly roasted coffee. Whole body. Layered and creamy. Lovely, silky tannins that blend into the wine. A beautiful vintage red with class and delicacy to the depth of the fruit.
