Geppetti has produced another gem in her 2006 Saffredi, a French-oak aged blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Alicante. This textured, explosive wine boasts considerable depth and richness in its dark fruit, flowers, minerals and graphite. The wine remains extremely primary and in need of considerable bottle age in order to offer its best drinking but it is unquestionably formidable. The style combines elements of power and elegance, achieving a level rarely seen in these parts. Simply put, this is stunning juice. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2026. (AG)
The 2006 Saffredi is the bombastic, kaleidoscopic wine it has always been. In fact at times it resembles a barrel sample, given its superb vibrancy and freshness! Dark wild cherries, herbs, graphite, spices, tobacco and leather come together beautifully in this focused, powerful Saffredi. Today the 2006 is decidedly virile and youthful, but there is no doubt it has the sheer depth of material to drink beautifully to age 20, and likely beyond. The 2006 is a marvelous Saffredi, but patience is required. (AG)
I love the nose of flowers, dark fruits and Tuscan rosemary. Full-bodied, with super silky tannins and beautiful, refined fruit. Sexy and complex.
Displays a lovely nose of flowers, dark fruits and Tuscan rosemary. Full-bodied, with supersilky tannins and gorgeous, refined fruit. Complex and seductive. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Alicante and Syrah. Best after 2013. (JS)
The 2006 is a blend of 55% Cabernet, 40% Merlot and 5% Syrah in a year noted for its rich tannins. It's a youthful, lustrous colour with a fragrant, penetrating nose of fresh bay leaves, sweet spice, and red and black fruit. The palate is concentrated and rich in texture with a firm backbone of ripe but coating tannins giving savoury length. Very good, but lacking the ultimate beauty of some other vintages. (JS)
