Fattoria Le Pupille Saffredi 2018 Maremma Toscana


In stock

SKU: 29263 Categories: ,


Excitement for the 2018 vintage in Tuscany has been bubbling for some time now. Saffredi, always among the first Super-Tuscans to enter the market, has arrived bearing exceptionally good tidings. The 2018 shows a taut nose, with ripe black cherries, blackcurrants, and damson, is supported by enticing herbal notes of sage and rosemary in a manner characteristic of the vintage, and the long, brooding finish is flecked with black tea and dark chocolate. Firm, delectable tannins frame the picture and the freshness of this wine is something of a marvel alongside the intensity and complexity, suggesting that the 2018 Saffredi will heartily reward any collector strong-willed enough to cellar it for decades to come. 96+/100 Greg Sherwood MW

"A fantastic nose to this with currant, sage, rosemary and rose-petal character. Sweet tobacco and spicy chocolate, too. Very complex. The palate shows lovely depth of fruit with blackberries, blackcurrants and fine tannins. It’s racy and refined with a direct, focused palate. Just a baby. Fascinating red.”
97/100 James Suckling

Producer Information: Fattoria Le Pupille

Elisabetta Geppetti, the powerhouse behind Fattoria Le Pupille, is a woman of exceptional energy and vision. She was only 20 years old when she first took the reins at her family’s property in Scansano. The original wine made here was Morellino di Scansano which, to this day, remains the mainstay of production. With her steadfast vision, Elisabetta enlarged the estate to the current 75 hectares and added to the range Maremma’s first Super Tuscan, the Cabernet-based Saffredi. Thanks to Elisabetta’s incredible work over the last thirty years, Maremma is now firmly on the map of wine lovers.
