The 2010 Saffredi (Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon) delivers gorgeous intensity and broad aromas of black berry, leather, crushed granite and lingering smoke. It’s a masterpiece on all happy fronts. The textural elegance is superb. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2025. There is always a single face that identifies a region: A sole producer with the charisma and communicative talents required to perform the ambassadorial duties that bring a relatively obscure wine area to the world stage. For the Maremma, that person is Elisabetta Geppetti. Her newest releases confirm the extreme quality that distinguishes Fattoria Le Pupille. (ML)
The aromas of blueberries and lavender come out nicely in the glass. Full body, with fine tannins and a bright acidity. The texture is wonderful here. Needs two or three years to come together. Saffredi is a benchmark in Tuscany's Maremma region.
Black cherry and licorice flavors hold the center, with accents of vanilla, clove, cedar and wood resin. This is concentrated and backed by stiff tannins, leaving a firm finish for now. Needs time. Best from 2016 through 2029.
