The 2007 Saffredi is drop-dead gorgeous. Roasted coffee beans, grilled herbs, mocha and dark fruit emerge from this beautiful, textured wine. The richness of the fruit radiates through to the long, polished finish. The 2007 Saffredi impresses for its fabulous balance and soft, enveloping personality. It is another superb effort from proprietor Elisabetta Geppetti. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2027. (AG)
This is full throttle on the palate with blackberries, fresh herbs such as rosemary and currants. Full body, with velvety tannins and a long, long finish finish. Leave this for four to five years.
A summer of average temperatures rather than the heat spikes experienced further inland. As in the previous year, the blend is 55% Cabernet, 40% Merlot and 5% Syrah. A complex perfume of sandalwood, incense, sweet spice and equally sweet fruit introduces a very concentrated, opulent, ripe palate, but one that doesn’t completely deliver on the promise of the nose. The fruit is ripe, verging on a slightly baked edge, and the weight and concentration of tannin as well as fruit, combined with lowish acidity, makes for a slightly four-square effect - although this may yet resolve itself.

Soft and fruity, with plenty of cherry and raspberry character. Full-bodied, with polished tannins and a long, pretty aftertaste. Best after 2013. (JS)
(a blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot and alicante) Dark ruby. Light red berry and plum aromas along with riper coffee and dark chocolate nuances. Dense and rich but nicely focused, with a creamy texture to the black cherry, dried herb and milk chocolate flavors. Puts on considerable weight in the glass and displays a seductive floral quality on the long finish. Harmonious acidity gives this concentrated blend a light touch and an overall impression of refinement. (ID)
